The debut issue of print journal, A Cappella Zoo, arrived in the mail last week and it's got a sharp looking cover, nice size (140 pages), and best of all, great material inside. What is ACZ all about? From their website:
"We emphasize magical realism and
work that experiments with technique, form, language, thought, and
reality. We're interested in shaking up traditional ideas and
assumptions about truth and language, whether to challenge our
intellects or just to play, but always to contribute to the on-going
universal discussion on humanity."
So far I've enjoyed stories by Tania Hershman, Heather Fowler, and Cicily Janus, plus a prose poem from Shellie Zacharia, and, well, I suppose it's a short story, from Corey Mesler done up in interview form that's pretty damn funny.
It's a very nice start for what I'm assuming is the only literary journal based out of Pocatello, Idaho. I look forward to future issues.
Wander on over and help them out with a purchase of issue number one!
