This is an unpretentious, straightforward litmag from the folks who put out PAISLEY MOON. O.U.S. features an eclectic mix of poetry, from the familiar (Lyn Lifshin, Errol Miller) to new voices (Jane Blue, Jim Tyack). But their strong point is not in any particular genre or style; rather, the magazine provides a pleasing variety and unharried format. t. kilgore splake has a 'Nam poem in here that is also naturalistic and flowing, and there's a nice surprise from Gloria Potter, a four-part poem that really clips along and keeps an interest despite language that borders on colloquial.--Roger-Kyle Keith
