Star 82 Review: Issue 1.2

Online (always free)

Print (and through Amazon)

In the spirit of summer travel this issue features personal essays, poems, and stories that revolve around planes, trains, and automobiles. Layered and worthy of multiple readings, these pieces deal with parents and children, dreams and daydreams, life cycle events and life in general. Even the most fanciful pieces feel emotionally true.

The artwork is broad and colorful: photographs, altered postcards, a painting, and a ballpoint pen drawing. Leading this second issue is a page from A Humument app by Tom Phillips, king of the erasure text. (See my previous blog post about the app). Of particular note: artists and writers who make books, Susan E. King and Philip Zimmermann each have contributed pieces of postcard lit.

Nice link, but "always free"?

Yes! You can always read each entire issue of Star 82 Review online for free. Or you can choose to purchase a print copy, that is, if you prefer to read it on paper and would like to support the venture.

The link took me to a Pay Page, so I was puzzled.. I'd still like to read this online..

Sorry for any confusion. I've fixed it now so you should be able to get directly to the online version. A link to the print version for each issue is now only at the bottom of each of the Contents pages.
