Welcome to a New Issue

It is almost winter in Michigan, but this is still "officially" the Fall issue of GutCult for 2007. Here, if it so
please you, you will find lyric essays by Dan Beachy-Quick, radical devotional poems by Anya L. Cobler
and Kazim Ali, Koan-like thanksgivings from Gabe Gudding, the big-lined bravura of Lucy Ives, and Sandra
Simonds' big-sky encomium.

You'll also find reviews of two recent poetry titles from Ahsahta Press (Becca Klaver reviewing Kate
Greenstreet's case sensitive and Jen Tynes reviewing Susan Briante's Pioneers in the Study of Motion).

We hope you find this work as necessary as we do and that 2007 has treated you well.

See you again a couple of times in 2008. Until then, we wish you every best thing
