While a lot of you check in with us for our take on the latest word-related news flash, the biggest news for us this week is the upcoming launch of our new issue. After a serious bout of copyediting and a final loving gaze from the editorial staff, Issue #45 is off to the printer and will be making its way out to subscribers and bookstores soon after. Not a subscriber? We can fix that; send us an email at HFR@asu.edu. It's the best way to ensure that you don't miss out on a fantastic forthcoming issue. We'll be having the editors post next week on what their own favorites are, but my list includes the short story "The Fortune Seller" by Naveed Noori, a modern day Araby tale set in Iran; the great poem "Skew Lines" by Lilah Hegnauer, and an awesome wraparound cover by Chinese artist Hong Hao. Check out our last issue's content here if you need reminding just how great new writing can be, and then join us for the editor's posts next week as they whet your appetite for Issue #45.
