As the summer’s end approaches, leaving earthquakes, hurricanes, and other disasters behind, time will tell how literature will record their impact. In the meantime, let us look to the literature of the present. Susan Tepper’s poem “Daisy” appears in the Somerville News and her non-fiction piece “That Summer in Greece” at Pure Slush. Joani Reese’s poems “Abstinence” and “Play” are featured at Camroc Press Review and her piece “May You Live In Interesting Times” at Gloom Cupboard. Jane Hammons’ “What Ever Happened to Old Tom Joad” is forthcoming in Blink Ink’s The Noir Issue. Ann Bogle’s book, Country Without a Name, is available at Lulu. Kathy Fish’s collection, Wild Life, is available through Matter Press and Amazon. Robert Vaughn’s “Nowhere in Sight” and Andrew Stancek’s “Goat Fate” and “Flight” are at Pure Slush.
