PEN America 10: Fear Itself

The online feature accompanying our new issue is now up at PEN.org. As the feature says: “At this moment of unease and anxiety, PEN America 10: Fear Itself examines -- through fiction, poetry, drama, essays, and conversations -- the subject of fear in all its guises.”

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.
