Miracles, visions, existential freakouts, indie rock–the gorgeous new edition of Dappled Things has it all. We invite you to thrill with the music of Dear Other and enjoy Michael Rennier’s interview with the band and review of their new EP, The Exitus and Reditus of Andrew Darkstar Parrish. Online readers can also enjoy for free the poetry of Michael Lyle, M.B. Powell, and Liz Dolan (though you should really get that subscription already and stop missing out!).
We are particularly proud to present in this issue the winners of our third annual J.F. Powers Prize for Short Fiction. The fantastic winning story, And Upon Awakening by Linda McCullough Moore, is truly a perfect example of what we mean in the contest description by “stories with one foot in this world and one in the next.” Read it and try not to be shaken.
