Here it is, another issue. New fiction and poetry, plus the best of 2011. Were the best stories picked? argue about it here!

Of course they were. I trust Robert's judgement implicitly.

The poems are another question entirely. Who let that man in here?

Oh. So it's only McCamy's and Lester's judgement you question...

McCamy said that she liked all the long fiction she chooses to run, so she relied on Forum comments to help her pick the "best" entries. A certain gun-toting groundhog-sniping person was blamed -- er, named -- as having the most influence on her decisions.

Wow . . . I'll take that as an honor.

Thank you, McCamy.

Really - I didn't think Scowboys was Richard's best poetry. I like the poems of his that are either focused on the extremely far (his galaxy poems) or the ones that go inside his skull. For instance, I thought the poem that includes the line "Do the voices in my head keep you awake at night" was particularly nice.
Also, I much preferred his story about 'The Dutch' to the story chosen about the princess and the dragon - which was cute indeed, I'm not saying it wasn't. I thought, however, The Dutch story got to the root of the person, the emotional foundation as it were.
I like Mechanical Failure too - thanks!
