In other Backwards City awesomeness news, our fifth issue is at the printer and will be back in time for its debut alongside Jennifer Chapis's incredible chapbook The Beekeeper's Departure
at AWP. I can't talk this issue up highly enough. It's got George Singleton. It's got a BookNinja. It's got comics that will make your head explode. It's fantastic. I know
you all are already subscribers -- but if your subscription isn't current, better renew it
before you miss out.
