HFR received this email about issue 42...

This is Seth Horton, co-editor of Best of the West: Stories from the Wide Side of the Missouri. As you may remember, you have been generous enough to provide me with a free subscription. I wanted to let you know that I've just finished issue 42 and was absolutely floored with the quality of the stories. I read hundreds of journals a year, and this was by far one of the best issues I've read in years. Congratulations.

Best,
D. Seth Horton
