[Review] Slaughter by Rosanna Hildyard — Daunish Negargar

“Hildyard brings a nuanced perspective to both the realities of farming in the United Kingdom and female sexuality, as contradictions are not skimmed over, or resolved, but rather relished and dissected like a bloody carcass throughout this dark tale”

[Fiction] Orts — Meghan Murphy

[Fiction] The Roundhouse — Elena Lo Presti

“From that moment onwards, I see lights appearing inside The Roundhouse’s rooms: it is almost like, after discovering its rotating secret, I have broken the enchantment that kept its guests invisible, safe from my gaze.”

[Fiction] Apple Blossom Sky — Laura Moreton-Griffiths

“I have eight weeks before the changes are noticed. In eight weeks I can do a lot of damage. For a little while, the materials will not be missed and my nano sabotage will go undetected.”

[Poetry] — Peter Donnelly

“At these minor garden parties,/Wind lushes and lashes/Through tended-to bush/Gusts across tennis courts (the nets slap/And billow); Ford Fiestas at the perimeter/Unmoved by all of this.”

[Poetry] — Maia Joy

“The brightness melts my insides/into something that more resembles/a Salvador Dalí painting than/anything earthly”

[Poetry] — George Rawlins

“I stalk a weakening current, a mirror/to wandering, tracing faint verse/into sediment just/below whitewater.”

[Poetry] — Adam Houle

“You can’t tell / if the snow is fresh, a god-sent snow, falling / or if it’s just wind-lifted, old snow come again”

[Poetry] — Adam Tavel

“Carter gazes at a thousand shadow treasures / he’ll loot to catalog in haughty solitude / until the war, until his cancer comes.”
