This issue contains a number of interesting pieces, and a glance at the credits page reveals that our contributor base was, in this period, quite international, with submissions from Mexico, Uruguay, Poland, Italy and Belgium, as well as the to-be-expected USA and Canada.
The opener is a poetry-collage work by Patrick McKinnon, and later on, there appears a series of strikingly off-kilter compositions by Zen Sutherland. Further still, there is a collection of visual poetry collages by César Espinosa, and R.K. Courtney contributes one of his signature psuedo-vérité texts. The usual suspects from Madison are present in force, with submissions by Miekal And, Aquatics Ever Tarnish, and Ybrigor Moss making the cut. A block-cut print by Piotr Szyhalski also graces the collection, among contributions by many others, as well as the usual editorial content.
In additions to the pages referred to above, an additional volume was included in the mailing for this issue, the 32-page booklet Good News by John Heck. Never one to shrink from large targets, Heck takes on the Holy Bible in this lovingly produced tiny tome.
