Introduction

Hello and welcome to the Springish issue of BlazeVOX 12. I do want to apologize for the lateness in putting together this issue of the journal, we had a bit of a thing with the National Endowment for the Arts, that is now, thankfully, favorably resolved. So hurray! To find out more about this here is a link to a recent Huffington Post interview: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/anis-shivani/blazevox-nea-ban_b_1374042.html

It is my great pleasure to be able to continue on, get back to work and publish fine works such as is represented in this sunny issue, hurray!

Presented here is a world-class issue of BlazeVOX12 featuring poetry, art, fiction, and an arresting work of creative non-fiction, written by authors from around globe. We are introducing a new section in the journal, Book Previews, which as the name describes it is a brief look at some of our new book titles.
