Modern Miniatures by Dana Al-Rashid

Landscape Anxiety by Maya Jewell Zeller
Poet Maya Jewell Zeller's new essay puts our relationship to landscape into startlingly new perspective. "In classics like The Odyssey, and Into the Wild, and other famous stories about men, a journey happens over several years, with violent catharses and character revelations, or a stranger comes and changes everything about the townspeople's lives... In my story, a woman...drives to another town, lives a solitary life of work and thought, and comes back every week, and nothing visible to the world really changes all at once. Her story is in the quiet, the in between."

Four Prepositions by Mark Mayer
Mark Mayer's stories are from About, Above, Around: 50 Prepositions, a collection of short fictions, running from a few hundred to a few thousand words, each of which springs from an English preposition and considers how it might describe the movements of feeling. 

Guest of Honor by Katya Apekina
We're excited to share an excerpt of Katya Apekina's new novel, Mother Doll, about a pregnant woman in L.A. who is contacted by a medium who's channeling the ghost of her great-grandmother, a Russian revolutionary. The "guest of honor" in this funny and imaginative depiction of Russian aristocratic society is Rasputin, who "stank like a goat...opened all of the birdcages in the other room, and now the little canaries were flying in desperate circles around the dining room."
