Tinfish 16 / trout 13

Newly released: a collaborative issue of Tinfish with trout, an on-line journal out of Honolulu and New Zealand, edited by Robert Sullivan, Anne Kennedy, Tony Murrow, and Brian Flaherty (www.trout.auckland.ac.nz). Both journals specialize in Pacific poetries; some of the authors have appeared in both publications, but most are new to one or the other.

This issue features work by Hinemoana Baker, Cherie Barford, Linh Dinh, Murray Edmond, Kari Edwards, David Eggleton, Glenn Mott, Eileen Myles, Kit Robinson, Hazel Smith, Juliana Spahr, Richard von Sturmer, and Mark Wallace, as well a review of John Kinsella by John Rieder. And much more! Wonderful translations from the Chinese of Huang CanRan, Shang Qin and others. Each cover of the Tinfish paper version is unique, a slipcover map. Centerfold by Thomas Wasson, designer of the roofing paper cover issue.

Sent it. And for those curious, I blogged about this question a long time ago here: http://asianamericanpoetry.blogspot.com/2005/01/asian-american-poetry-anthologies.html. It feels a bit odd reading old posts sometimes. Man, I was so eager back then. :)
