Author Peter Vilbig
Horizon Review Five has finally hit our screens and it's a whopping great issue. It's my last issue as fiction editor - I have decided to step down as I want to prioritise my own writing this year and it's too hard to do that while busily editing other writers' work.
For this issue I chose stories from Bronwen Griffiths, Máire T. Robinson, Angela Topping, Neil Campbell, Steven Maxwell, A. J. Ashworth, Eimear Ryan and Peter Vilbig. The latter's story 'Adoption' is a stunning piece, to name but one, and I'm delighted to end my editorial stint at Horizon with such a crop of fine work. David Gaffney takes over as fiction editor.
The issue also features poetry, essays, interviews and an interesting piece on poetry and poetry competitions by Mario Petrucci.
