Several pieces from the issue are available online: fiction by Lucy Corin, Petina Gappah, and Rawi Hage; poetry by Nicole Cooley, Christian Hawkey, and Tomasz Rozycki; and drama by Saïd Sayrafiezadeh. We also put up the first half of a great story by "gekiga" artist Yoshihiro Tatsumi (to read the rest of the story, you’ll have to order the issue -- or this great collection of Tatsumi's work available from Drawn & Quarterly). And we put up part of “Fear Itself: A Forum,” about which more next week.
The cover art, by the way, is by David Polonsky, who will -- along with ten other contributors to this issue -- appear at World Voices in May. Polonsky is the illustrator of Waltz with Bashir; the cover image originally appeared in the graphic novel adapted from the film.
