Issue 51

An American ex-pat revels in plain living in Latin America while fear stops her aunt from disembarking from her luxury cruise ship in Mexico. Elsewhere, a woman’s ‘father issues’ resurface as she prepares to bury her mother’s ashes and bankrolled big-game hunters vie for the ultimate prize.

From political tirades in Trinidad and Tobago and Turkey to religious debates in parallel dimensions, we proudly present the work of Barbara Bottner, Craig Dicker, Anne Dorrian, Andrew Edwards, James Gallant, Sharon Frame Gay, Cristina Legarda, Joan Mazza, Jesse O’Reilly-Conlin, and Lynette Yetter. Plus, a brand new tale by acclaimed fiction writer Mark Jacobs and an interview with him in which he discusses magazines, mentors, and the Latin American media attack on his famous short story.
