Hats Off! to Michael K. Brantley whose essay "Shopping List, 1937" appears in Parhelion Literary Magazine. It's about a checkbook he found on his grandmother's desk after her death he was ten, with the last check written in 1938. There was a shopping list on the back inside cover.


Hats Off! to Krystal A. Smith whose debut short-story collection Two Moons (BLF Press, 2018) is a Top 5 favorite in the "Short Stories" category of the 2019 Over the Rainbow Recommended Book List.
