Writes: Bittner, ZoBell, Creith

Russell Bittner's "Aubade to Marit Haahr" is a deeply evocative and complex poem that engages with themes of love, desire, nature, and cosmic imagery to explore the nuances of human emotion and connection.

ZoBell carefully balances the external observations of family interactions with the internal reflections of her characters, creating a multi-layered story that resonates with themes of acceptance, the search for belonging, and the enduring bonds of family regardless of differences.

This story not only entertains but also invites reflection on the ways in which folklore and mythology inform our understanding of the world and ourselves. It is a reminder of the magic that exists at the edges of reality, waiting to be discovered by those who are open to the wonders of the world.
