Editor Gina Grega lives up to the title of this publication by trying very hard to be confrontational, featuring poetry, reviews, rants and risqué artwork. Overall bold in context, uncensored, but a bit contradictory. It sometimes struggles too hard to be bizarre, and is at once PC and off-the-rack radical. This issue contains work by Ohio's own Cheryl Townsend, as well as Dan Nielsen, and others. Lyn Lifshin tells of smuggling, "the child is slit/ emptied out like a trout/ or a hen stuffed taut/ and plump with small/ bags of heroin" This publication is specifically for the loud and alone.--R.R.
