Star 82 Review back issues on Etsy

In a previous life, I went to book fairs and bought extra copies of Star 82 Review from the print-on-demand service that I use. After keeping one of each for myself, I found I have several back issues from 2013-2019 to offer to you at a discount at nevermindtheart . All the *82 content on the web is free, of course, but maybe you had an issue you particularly liked but never got around to getting a copy to hold in your hand. You can now do that  here .

*82 Editor Interview

For many years Jim Harrington has been posting editor interviews on his blog, Six Questions For…. As a writer, I find these interviews extremely helpful; I can get a feel for the listed magazines by the mood and style of the editor's answers. As an editor, it gives me a chance to give you the same. Today Jim has posted my second interview with him here . The first interview was in 2014, in the very early years of *82, here . Many thanks to Jim for continuing this invaluable resource! And the guidelines for submission to *82, as always, are here .

Still Reading for Star 82 Review 9.4

I'm still reading for the winter issue. It's a nice time to sit down with your old work and comb through it, discovering a gem in the midst of fallen leaves.
