  • Editors’ Page
    • Abstract: Every fall, we have the true pleasure of publishing the winning story of the Nelligan Prize for Short Fiction. This year, it’s Katie M. Flynn’s “Island Rule,” in which an environmental biology professor is haunted by memories of the surreally accelerated evolution and ensuing political violence that expelled her, as a child, from her island home. Final judge Richard Bausch calls it “a very strange, audaciously original and convincing story that arrives at metaphor; it partakes of Kafka, being so matter-of-factly realistic.” It’s a wonderful, daring story, richly deserving of the prize. Among the other fine stories in this issue is Mike Alberti’s “Summer People”: in Vietnam War–era upstate New ... Read More

  • Island Rule: Winner of the 2017 Nelligan Prize for Short Fiction, selected
           by Richard Bausch
    • Abstract: I tell my students: On islands, small omnivorous animals tend to get bigger while large predators tend to get smaller. Island rule, they called it for a time. Some of them write this down. Others don’t. They sit in the arena-style lecture hall shoulder to shoulder and still. The last-row boys spit tobacco into cups and whisper about football practice. I tell them: Take the rats of Flores. Isolated from the mainland population, they have grown up to four feet in length. I flick my slideshow to an image of a dead rat lying sprawled on the ground like a giant cat. The students suck in a collective gasp. In its claws someone has put a coffee can to render its size indisputable. I ... Read More

  • Summer People
    • Abstract: Bright, buzzing summer, and Lorna was watching from the riverbank, sitting in the grass with her legs tucked under and her dress frilled around her in a blue circle. At that place the river bent, and as it wound around the turn it slowed and deepened. Behind her the bank sloped steeply up to the parking lot of the American Legion, where flags waved in the breeze that came down the river. The breeze picked up the smell of the cottonwood sap and the sweet gale that grew along the banks, and it riffled through the leaves of the cottonwoods on the other side, which turned and quivered, dark green on top and pale beneath, and Lorna was watching the leaves with the light sieved through them and the boys standing ...

  • The Night Runner
    • Abstract: The Class Six girls were bad, and everyone knew it. All the teachers at Butula Girls’ Primary School had a Class Six story—the time the girls locked a female instructor in the boys’ toilet overnight; the time they staged an insurrection after being fed githeri for ten days in a row and led the school in a sit-down strike; the incident with the goat in the supply closet. After they learned that the new American Peace Corps volunteer, Aaron, had been assigned to Class Six, all the teachers gave him sympathetic looks when they passed him in the hallway, and one of the younger ones felt so sorry for him that as she was talking with her colleagues about his dilemma in the lunchroom she burst into ...

  • Val
    • Abstract: I know him right away—the kid who’s going to buy me a drink. I have a feeling about these things: I know the too good ones, and I’m patient. The MenU has refused to serve me for the last forty-five minutes. MenUs—so convenient, a rolling screen machine behind the bar, put in a credit card, tap on a picture, presto. This one’s wearing a bowtie because people are awful. MenUs have won a lot of awards, as far as there are awards for this kind of thing, and now they’re winning even more, health and safety, for the breathalyzer addition. Story of my life. The kid who’s going to buy me a drink is taking his sweet time realizing it, but that’s not why I decide to talk to him. I talk to him ... Read More

  • Moonwalk
    • Abstract: I’ve been walking almost daily around a lake that’s drying up. Or rather, it’s being slowly drained. It has something to do with a leak that needs fixing. It’s a man-made lake, and there’s a dam made of boulders on one side, and the fixers can’t do what they need to do until the lake is empty. It’s becoming less and less scenic, but since I like routine, and the lake is just up the street from my son’s elementary school, I haven’t found a new route. Alex is in second grade, and I’ve been walking twice around this lake/soon-to-be-puddle every school day, except for rainy or abrasively windy days, since Alex was in kindergarten. At first, at the start of the school year, I didn’t realize the draining was ... Read More

  • A Lesson from My Father’s Suitcase
    • Abstract: In the way my father had of whistling light tunes, there was never any sense of groping, no pained search for answers beyond the usual. He never walked but strolled, trotted, bounded like a deer. He climbed steps two or three at a time. Sometimes he even danced, whirling my mother around the kitchen while she tried to cook or doing a comic cha-cha while he helped her clear the dinner plates. Life rested easy on his shoulders. My father never cowered, not when he faced a criminal on the street, not when he faced the death of my mother, and not even toward the end when he faced the ghoul-gray doctor who would drill into his skull to take a sample of his brain. My father smiled. Sometimes with a ... Read More

  • The Grammar of Untold Stories
    • Abstract: My grandmother spoke little English. Her teeth were yellow and chipped. She smelled like a book that hadn’t been opened in a long time. When she hugged me, she pulled me into her soft body forever, repeating my name in a way I didn’t recognize. My face pressed into her bosom, I stiffened at the mustiness of her dark dress. When she released me, I could breathe again. I’d done my duty. When I fell in love with my husband, I fell in love with his grandmother and with their love, as thick and rich as the tomato sauce she served at every family gathering. As a boy, my husband spent Saturdays with her, and together they tore advertising circulars and old magazines into bits, tossed the colorful paper ... Read More

  • The Next Century Won’t Be Kind to Anyone, and: Step Five Is to Make Your
           Own “Happy List”
    • Abstract: Imagine yourself thinking “breathe in / breathe out” all day long, or “look, water is coming out of this faucet!” and “look, I’m breathing in and out!” Still, though, it’s all kind of amazing, we agree, on fallow days, over dinner or drinks. Because we have to notice things as well as take them for granted, or else we’d end up stepping into traffic, distracted or suicidal. Lightning again. Third storm this week, as I’m typing, temperature down to 72, and the window open. It’s all kind of amazing. Still, why not complain about the toothpaste' If it tastes bad, and you paid for it, why not complain' It’s a Sunday, late June, Brexit week. The fragility of the planet looms as a financial metaphor. The fragility of ... Read More

  • The Body Ghost, and: The Body Ghost, and: The Body Ghost
    • Abstract: 99% payout video poker, so drunk as the sky, so willows so lost, the warmth inside the wet inside the wind: hi, trumpet flower, autumn, soft sung moons: I’ll try to glint like birds behind the rain oxygen makes fire brighten—brilliant water, stick your hand in—nothing ends, do you believe me—Tuesday he’ll be dead a year—dead face, open mouth—buried in snow—paint plenty to nightmare, brightness, flesh—nobody dies—nobody loses— your kisses, your sky, your darkness, your sky—no, angel, paint flesh, and all the secrets, all the hands, send me, send me there: let’s be rain, you could kiss me—pink arcs, pink-purple arcs, you, dirty, clean, kindness, longing—write the night—sound gives life, death’s ...

  • From “Atlas Inutilis”
    • Abstract: At dawn on January 13, 1923, Jack Bluther, condemned to death by hanging for the murder of thirteen people (including his landlady), was allowed a last request. He asked to learn Mandarin, and was hanged twenty years later, finally speaking the language fluently, though his accent could have used a little more work. If the Hatakas, a pygmy tribe from northern Angola, think that God is the shadow of chance (with all the imaginable consequences), it’s not by chance, but in order to systematically contradict their hereditary enemies, the pygmy Hakatas, for whom, on the contrary, chance is the shadow of God. The truly intelligent machine will be invented on April 12, 2023 at the Toshiba ai ... Read More

  • [Adrift in Remains]
    • Abstract: Adrift in remains hawk hovers the Don’s narrow course. Glacial cut. Mallow and willow. Tansy. Kashmir pellets take eyes Palestine a rind to hollow. No one spirals through geography attributing song mournful pasture ruins. Tanks tear border desert streams Kurds or reed Arabs swamped. Husks and shells thin objects dull in stream oil floats thin glistening blue flame where gods rooted guards ripped to gain rot or gore and flee. Apple green spit shine appeal in market stalls. Flies buzz a window carriage a gown to sleep in no one’s open keep. Gourds dipped in water attend daily means physical skin to shape widely flung interior goings. Ghostly core to seize limbs or mouth—wet tongues hang in windy sky ... Read More

  • From The Book of Others, and: From The Book of Others, and: From The Book
           of Others
    • Abstract: Often it happens when you least expect it. You are on a bus on your way home; a man on this same bus is coughing intermittently, he is told by the bus driver to cover up when he is coughing. This goes on for about 15 minutes or so. The man coughs, the driver is insisting he cover his mouth, the man is ignoring the bus driver—perhaps he is unaware that she is speaking to him—he continues to cough. Someone else on the bus is saying “he is paying you no mind, you should just call the police” and yet another person is saying, “he doesn’t understand English, he doesn’t understand English.” The man is being asked by the bus driver to leave. The bus is parked, the driver refuses to continue driving, the man is sitting ... Read More
