My thanks to Chase Gagnon and Lori Minor for editing this issue. What a beautiful collection of haiga! My ‘guest editors’ have turned in to a real inspiration to me personally, and I hope you all feel that way too. Don’t forget to take a look at the zine they edit either. Scryptic is fast becoming a crowd favorite in the haikai world!
In this issue, we also have the Results of the H. Gene Murtha Senryu Contest! Steve Hodge and I had a real blast reading the entries, and as we did last year we also published the ‘short list’ so you could all see how difficult it was to choose a winner! Congratulations to every poet who participated, as well as the winners!
What an absolutely brilliant issue of haiga this is. I love that includes pieces that might only appear here–in this wonderful world of senryu…and then some. Thanks, Mike, for inviting Chase and Lori to co-edit this issue. They have done an outstanding job–as we all knew they would.
