Promiscuous clouds and kitchenware, characters escaping their plots, a man holding a six-month breath, a contemporary Sisyphus, a refreshingly darker Cat in the Hat, and stories in Hebrew and Latvian—this and more fill the pages of the latest edition of A cappella Zoo.
Issue 4 was released in print this April and is being released online in daily morsels throughout the month. The artwork of Sarah Walko, Meagan Jenigan, and Peter L. Scacco make the print version a particular treat. This issue features a play, 16 short stories, 10 flash stories, and 14 poems by the following authors: Rob E. Boley, Rae Bryant, Eric Burke, R. Matthew Burke, Matt Carney, Maria Deira, Francis DiClemente, Gabe Durham, Greg Gurke, Joseph Harrington, Lois Beebe Hayna, Kyle Hemmings, Robert Hinderliter, Crystal Hoffman, Jennifer Koe, Larry Lefkowitz, Ben Loory, Ieva, Melgalve, Christina Murphy, Kurt Newton, Justin Petropoulos, M.P. Powers, Amy Rollinson, Robin Rozanski, Christopher Ryan, Eric Schaller, Randolph Schmidt, Noel Sloboda, Audri Sousa, Amber Sparks, Laura Spencer, Patrick Sugrue, Pedro Tejada, John Thornton, J.A. Tyler, Karen Marie Vaughn, Chris Wiewiora, and Catherine Zickgraf.
About A cappella Zoo
Colin Meldrum founded A cappella Zoo in 2008 with the help of three friends. The Zoo has since grown to include a board of a dozen editors and readers across the US, UK, and Canada. The journal emphasizes magic realism and slipstream, with room for other explorations of perspective, reality, and genre.
