new essays and fiction at Unlikely Stories: Episode IV

December 3rd, 2014

Hello beautiful Netziens, targeted and otherwise! Thanks to the efforts of Justin Herrmann, there’s a sweet little mini-issue up at www.UnlikelyStories.org , featuring:

Willis Gordon on the militarization of local police
Jordan Flaherty on how sex trafficking laws target prostitutes
Yacov Ben Efrat on the state of the Oslo Accord
AE Reiff on the books of Charles Bowden
George Sparling’s narrative-analysis of artist Gottfried Helnwein
and Fresh New Fiction by Meg Tuite and Robert Hunter Whitworth

We’ve got a massive issue of poetry, curated by the amazing Michelle Greenblatt, being prepped at this time, but we wanted to give you this little pill of prosaic bitterness now. Enjoy!
