PAUL BLANEY has been teaching in the basement of Murray Hall for at least a dozen years. Primarily a short fiction writer, he finds himself increasingly drawn to poetry.

ALEX DAWSON'S forthcoming novel, Welcome to White Hart, is due out next year. Lev Grossman (The Magicians) called it "magical and masterful... Narnia by way of Faulkner," Idra Novey (Those Who Knew) called it "a work of wizardry," and Kevin Wilson (Nothing to See Here) said "in a perfect world, this would be the story we told our loved ones at Christmas." Dawsn's book mobile, The Rac-On-Tour, a farm truck offshoot of his erstwhile bookshop, The Raconteur, built on the back of a '53 International flatbed, is hitting the road this month.


JOANNA FUHRMAN is the author of six books of poetry, most recently To a New Era.
