Hello, everyone, and welcome to the Gettysburg Review Online.
Update: As you know, we have been working on the first digital offering of the Gettysburg Review, and we are quite happy to announce that it is now available for purchase at our Online Shop! Beginning with the Summer 2015 issue, the Gettysburg Review will be available in three digital formats: ePDF, which replicates the print version, ePub, and Mobipocket. The latter two are “reflowable” formats for use on e-readers (ePub) and Kindle devices (Mobipocket). In addition to single copies, we are also offering digital subscriptions. Please, check it out and spread the word. And to those of you who are print loyal, don’t worry: we will continue to be primarily a print publication.
The Summer 2015 issue itself is fresh and lovely and positively blooming with captivating paintings by Benjamin Thomas, poetry by Linda Pastan, Alice Friman, Jean Nordhaus, Nick Lantz, and Michelle Boisseau, among others, fiction by Janice Obuchowski, Tasha LeClair, Norma Marder, Askold Melnyczuk, and Mary Rechner, and nonfiction by Mary Clearman Blew, Robert Brunk, Lynda Sexson, and Jodie Noel Vinson, along with Floyd Collins’s review of new poetry collections by Andrew Hudgins, David Baker, W. S. Merwin, and Charles Wright.
In other big news, two essays and a short story from volume twenty-six have been selected for reprinting in The Pushcart Prize XL: Best of the Small Presses. Join us in congratulating Sarah Vallance (“Constance Bailey in the Year of Monica Lewinsky,” Winter 2014), Catherine Jagoe, (“A Ring of Bells,” Summer 2014), and Edward McPherson (“Telref,” Spring 2014) for being so richly and justly honored.
That’s it for now. We always like to hear from our readers, so please let us know what you think of the latest issue. If you are a user of social media, say hello and like us on Facebook. As always, thanks for your support, and keep reading.
Richly deserved congratulations to longtime Gettysburg Review contributor Leslie Pietrzyk, who has won the very prestigious 2015 Drue Heinz Literature Prize for her collection of short stories This Angel on My Chest, which will be published in the fall of 2015 by the University of Pittsburgh Press.
