The Cascadia Subduction Zone, Vol.3,1

The Cascadia Subduction Zone has begun its third year! Hard to believe, isn't it? (But then this spring Aqueduct Press will be nine years old.) The issue leads off with Alan DeNiro's "We Have Never Been Postmodern: 'Walking Stick Fires' and the Knowability of Science Fiction," which joins the conversation provoked by Paul Kincaid's Los Angles Review of Books essay "The Widening Gyre"; Hiromi Goto engages with Ursula K. Le Guin's Tehanu for the issue's Grandmother Magma column; Nin Andrews, Care Santos (tr. by Lawrence Schimel) and Michele Bannister contribute creative work; and Victoria Garcia, Karen Burnham, Mark Bould, and others review books that caught our attention. Pam Sanders is our featured artist. You can find it at
