Letter from the Editors

Welcome to Issue Eighty of The Collagist!

This month, we have fiction from Robert Long Foreman, Catherine Carberry, Matthew Minicucci, and Rochelle Hurt. We are also very pleased to have excerpts from forthcoming novels by two returning contributors, Angela Woodward's Natural Wonders and Sarah Blackman's HEX. In poetry, we have new work from Francine Conley, Marlin M. Jenkins, Leila Chatti, and Quinton Soemardi. Our nonfiction is from James Chesbro.

In book reviews, we have coverage of Upright Beasts by Lincoln Michel (reviewed by Ilana Masad), Astir by Kevin Boyle (reviewed by Liz Purvis), Peek by Paul Beckman (reviewed by Jacob Singer), and Double Jinx by Nancy Reddy (reviewed by Kjerstin Kauffman).

As always, thank you to all our contributors, and to you, our readers. We hope you enjoy this issue.  

Gabriel Blackwell and Matthew Olzmann
