Keeping anything happening for thirty years is impressive. subTerrain—a Canadian indie lit mag—manages the feat, doubly impressive due to its dedication to publishing unheard voices. Like the many issues I’ve reviewed in the past, this issue is themed: it harkens back to the mag’s original mission statement of publishing from the margins. Throughout this anniversary issue is fantastic fiction and poetry: this issue’s standouts include abecedarian poetry by Evelyn Lau and lake monster fiction by Anne Baldo. At twenty-five bucks for a two-year, six-issue subscription, subTerrain is a steal. Always a great read, always a joy to find in the mailbox. Get it! –Michael T.
