Buffalo is a place where little magazines continue to flourish. Wild Orchids is "an annual of affective and otherwise inspired forms of literary criticism" edited by Sean Reynolds and Robert Dewhurst. The first issue is devoted to Herman Melville; it includes works by Kim Evans, Benjamin Friedlander, Chris Sylvester, Alan Halsey, Joyelle McSweeney/Courtney Pfahl/Jennifer Scappettone, Stacy Szymaszek, Geraldine Monk, Donald Pease, and Mark Von Schlegell. The next issue will be devoted to my hero, Hannah Weiner (check out Dewhurst's poem for Hannah in the latest Peaches & Bats, below).
