Our September 2011 issue picks at the notion of time: the time we have, the time we don’t, and the breaking of all those rules entirely.
Georgina Bruce’s “Convent Geometry” reaches across time and space, through walls, against sickness to bring three people together – to somewhat dire consequences; Ian Donald Keeling’s “Broken” splinters it to reflect one man’s splintered heart; and Jen Volant’s “Jacob and the Jane Riches”, finds what might heal our wounds when time doesn’t do the job.
Poetry from Liz Bourke, David C. Kopaska-Merkel and Kendall Evans, Jacqueline West, and J.C. Runolfson goes back towards the classics, stops off at Mark Twain, and dips forward, into the whole of the universe, and this month’s book reviews cover two books which use historical elements to deadly effect.
We’d like to also take this opportunity to thank our long-time (and founding!) poetry editor, Jaime Lee Moyer, on the occasion of her departure from Ideomancer, and to welcome our new poetry editor, former associate editor Beth Langford, to the department.
We hope you enjoy this quarter’s issue, and if so, please consider dropping something into our tip jar. Ideomancer relies on reader donations to pay its contributors for their excellent fiction and poetry, and even five dollars makes a big difference.
Have a great autumn!
