STINGING FLY - SPRING 2012 ISSUE

The newest Stinging Fly arrived this morning, with new fiction from, among others, Mary Costello, whose short story collection The China Factory is due out in April (Cúirt launch 28th April!). There are lots of poems too, including one from Alan Jude Moore.

And there's a stunning review of The Juno Charm by Grace Wells. Huge thanks to Grace. A taster of the review: 'This spirit of audacious rebellion is Ní Chonchúir's defining and most engaging characteristic. Brazen and provocative, she endlessly offers up the unexpected; what unites her disparate work is the mercurial hand of a rare and trustworthy voice.'

I'm looking forward to sitting down with the mag and having a good, long read. Great cover too, as always. I'm loving the daffodil yellow band across the top - very spring-like to match the gorgeous day outside.
