New issue 2019.51

“Right now the Amazon, home to millions of my relatives, is burning. If it goes on like this, twenty years from now my house will become a desert and my people will be at risk of becoming history. Governments … are not helping. They promote hate-based narratives and a development model that attacks nature and indigenous peoples. These governments are trying to put us in extinction. They are part of the problem.”

—Artemisa Xakriabá

  1. So excited to be a part of this issue! I have a write up detailing what influenced my short story on my blog:

  2. A shout out to Cécile Matthey's visual interpretation of Eva Papasoulioti's poem--I love how these two pieces came together!

  3. So a cool issue to be a part of! Bravi tutti!

  4. I've been moving and just got a chance to look at the rest of the issue. Wow--so much beautiful lyricism and imagery in these stories! And the final sentence in 'Through the Dark, Persephone Speaks' by Jennifer Bushroe doesn't pull any punches.

  5. Lovely images in Misha Penton's flash. And I love Joyce Chng's illustration;the colors and the simplicity, so beautiful!

  6. Alex Brown talks about “Inanition” by Kate Kastelein over at the Tor blog, and recommends it among her top ten stories of the last couple months.
