Generally when I read quarterlies or journals, I prefer the fiction to the non-fiction. For this issue of Tin House, it was the exact opposite. The poetry is largely forgettable, the fiction, with the exception of a wonderfully odd story about a missing baby, is nothing special, but the essays are super interesting. UFOs, murder mysteries, and noir are all given insightful treatment. I'd actually like to give this issue 3.5 stars, but apparently that's not an option.

Rad theme and some good stuff. Spooky fiction, a surreal UFO piece, an essay attempting to define/re-define noir, and an exploration of some horrifying and unexplainable murders in Johannesburg. I was underwhelmed with this issues poetry and the word art on the front and back covers is weird and amateurish for a publication of this caliber.

The fiction in this one was kind of meh for me, but the non-fiction was fascinating and I loved reading it. The suitcase muder, UFOs, film noir... it was all really interesting and captivating, and I was disappointed when I got to the end of each piece simply because I wanted to keep reading.

Another great issue of Tin House. The cover picture isn't correct, but ah well. Great interview with Peter Straub. Lots of wonderful fiction and some fine poetry too. This is certainly my favorite of the literary quarterlies.
