Vol. 1 #1, Summer 1993

PO Box 140713
Staten Island NY, 10314


A premiere issue which contains fascinating breadth, from a sublime (in the Longinus or Edmund Burke sense) letter from Lord Byron which depicts the execution by guillotine of three robbers. The Romantic desire to evince a strong reaction in the reader is certainly evident here. Introduced with a quote by Michel Foucault, Edward Foster's "From the East" confronts how visceral longing either splits the self or forces it into a coherent image. Other strong offerings by Stephen Ellis, Robert Kelly, Deborah Salazar, Chris Stroffolino, Sally Detlor, many others. Excellent graphics.--Susan Smith Nash
