Poetry usually doesn’t do it for me, but everyone was praising the pieces in the latest issue of Lone Star Stories over on the editor’s website, so I felt compelled to check it out. I have to admit, I really enjoyed each of them, and I would definitely recommend giving them a read, even if you think you don’t like poetry. And as an extra bonus, while you’re over there, I also recommend the poetic prose in Josh Rountree’s Veronica.
Plus, two other recommendations for your reading pleasure.

The musical: Geddarien by Rose Lemberg
