Here's the promo video for the issue:

It's been a rough period for me, I'm glad I've finally gotten this issue around together. Lit.cat's Issue 19 is technically the season 2 finale, but I'm still winging it as it comes along.

Some notes:

I recommend staring at the intro screen for at least 30 seconds. It's really cool.

Rediscovering Wishington is really whimsical, the author is too talented to keep submitting to my journal.

PolarS was the most popular of this issue, which I didn't expect. It's always fun to look at the site statistics to see who brings in the most visitors.

tacocat has a poem published that evokes in me how it feels to finally finish this issue after getting around to it in a month.


cW:

I'm really enjoying this issue. It's really nice to encounter so much poetry, which often gets the short end, if it gets an end at all.

"the cable car seesawed in arpeggio

defibrillation of San Francisco’s

alien heart"

Good stuff. The cover is absolutely mesmerizing. I've been looking for a good candidate for a page that loads when I open the browser, just so the interwebs will seem to be inviting me into worlds of delight, fascination and beauty ... instead of gauntlets of advertising, popups, blurts of vitriol/illogic/etc. I daresay lit.cat 19's cover is the strongest candidate I've found for this role so far.
