Malena Watrous’s “Princess”—a mom trying to deal with the difficult child at her young son’s birthday party

Blossom Plumb’s “Mar”—a London chambermaid tends to the suite of a legendary artist

Will Boast’s “Lost Coast”—a slithery story of vengeance, set in San Francisco’s indie music world

And debut works of fiction from Susan Berman (“Lust for Life”: a vibrant, funny story of toxic love in ‘70s New York; a Pushcart Prize Special Mention) and Daryl Curryer (“Race Relations”: the tale of the reluctant showdown between two teen track “stars” in Washington state)

Nonfiction from Jill Storey (on what it means to be unable to see the world in three dimensions) and George Keithley; an excerpt from Zack Anderson and Robert Mailer Anderson’s screenplay on a Mexican boy coming to the U.S. to search for his father just after 9/11 (with original illustrations by Sandow Birk); poetry from Troy Jollimore, Heather Altfeld, Jeannette Allee, W.S. Di Piero, Jay Nebel, and Elizabeth Robinson.

And a selection of art from Katy Grannan’s series of photographic portraits and from Julio Cesar Morales’s paintings influenced by Mexico’s drug war.
