I just finished reading Lincoln Michel‘s collection, Upright Beasts.  One of my favorite stories is “Things Left Outside,” which also appears online at Weird Fiction Reviewhttp://weirdfictionreview.com/2015/10/things-left-outside/.

Keith Lesmeister interviewed Susan Pagani on his blog (Life as a Shorty) about her story, The Fledgling, in The Rappahannock Review: https://keithlesmeister.com/blog/.

Finally, I was excited to read Lynne Sharon Schwartz’s thoughts about the English poet Stevie Smith in this review: https://lareviewofbooks.org/article/looking-for-parents-and-cover-all-the-poems-of-stevie-smith/#! I didn’t know much about Smith’s poetry before reading this piece, and Lynne Sharon Schwartz continues to be so smart.  I admire her more all of the time.
