The Fall 2015 issue of Forge is now available. This issue’s Forge Interview subject is poet and author Lyn Lifshin.

As a special treat for this issue, we present a choice of covers for our paper edition which we have dubbed “moss” and “gnarly.” Same goodness inside two different crunchy candy shells.
