With a huge backlog, editrix Cheryl Townsend has kicked into high gear by doubling up her issues, and this one strikes with the impact of a sucker punch from a stranger. Giles Scott's "Wishbone" captures the yearning for children in simple, passionate words. Mark Weber spins a tale of pennies at the liquor store, while Tom House carries on the beat tradition with a tale of lost love and no money to cover the costs. Judson Crews, Ron Androla, Kurt Nimmo, and many other small press heroes cut so deep you wonder why you don't see blood on your skin. Angst so fine tuned you have to catch your breath between the pages.--Oberc
