Editor's Note

We proclaim that everything in this issue is worthy of an award. Charles Baxter’s subtle and masterfully crafted excerpt from his forthcoming novel The Soul Thief, Luis Jaramillo’s powerful short-short “The Pacific War,” Shawn Vestal’s not exactly heavenly vision of heaven “The First Several Hundred Years Following My Death,” Bruce Smith’s poetic self-portrait “Rediscovering Bruce Smith,” Beijing native Yiyun Li’s essay on her connection to the Irish writer William Trevor, and Frances McCue’s pilgrimage to the rough Montana back roads of poet Richard Hugo all deserve trophies and ticker tape parades. In our hearts, they’ve already won.
