When editor s.loy started this project, it was "doomed" from the get-go: limited by prearrangement to 4 issues only, then on to something else, as needed. That "limitation" seems to have been liberating--no chance to get entrenched or stodgy, no worry about the how to keep the thing going... maintain the focus on the present, center. This issue is "The Lid," a cheerful farewell and open door toward the future. The large format and explosively blown-up typewrit & handscrawl is as visually effective as ever, and appropriate to the immediate, human, "writ large" prose & poetry. Even where it shimmers toward surreal or fantasy, it's a hard-edged fantastic, not fuzzy or indefinite. Fine stuff, we'll look forward to whatever comes next.--luigi
