This will be my last issue as editor of In Posse. My spot as Chief Editor will be taken jointly by Ilya Kaminsky and Anna Sidak. Ilya will, of course, be continuing as Poetry Editor--he has built our poetry section into something quite wonderful. Anna will be joined by Steve Street in the Fiction section.

Please send comments on the work found on In Posse to Ilya Kaminsky or Anna Sidak, putting the editor's name in the subject line.

There's a lot of wonderful things to say about this issue!

In Posse is pleased to announce the continuation of the section edited by James Sallis, author of multiple collections of poems, essays and stories and nine novels including the acclaimed Lew Griffin series, translator of Raymond Queneau, columnist for The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Web Del Sol and the Boston Globe. Jim's section will be dedicated to crime stories, fantasy and science fiction. Literature, he says, is a buffet table piled high with cold cuts, vegetables, cheese, sweets: you walk around it, take what you need. To submit, send stories 3,500 words or less in body of email and with "Attention James Sallis" in the subject line to submissions.

Joan Wilking and Nan Leslie, Senior Fiction Editors, will also be moving on.

Another section, Works In Progress and Works in Print is the brain-child of our editor Anna Sidak. Work In Progress will feature exciting work being developed by writers, most often excerpts from novels--send in your comments. Work In Print features work that has survived by merit of readability: the clear presentation of ideas filtered through the unique point of view of an extraordinary writer. Put them side by side and tell us what you think.

In Posse Review is constantly expanding. Our Multi-Ethnic Anthology was the subject of a special coverage on KKUP 91.5 FM, a widely popular "people's radio" in the Bay Area. If you are a teacher and would like to inquire about adopting poems or prose from the Multi-Ethnic Anthology for your classroom curriculum, please write to our chief editor, Anna Sidak for details.

We are also pleased to note that literary agencies have been writing us for contact material on our authors. In Posse is dedicated to bringing opportunities to writers as well as the best reading for our visitors. For comments, etc., please contact Anna Sidak.
