I'm looking for recommendations of literary magazines with good short stories. Tin House is the only one I read right now. I'm hoping for more of the same caliber.
I know there are also great magazines of poetry and criticism, but I'm personally most interested in ones with strong fiction.

Did you read it? I liked it a lot. It's just like Lost but more creepy. And Vandermeer writes so well.
the rest of the trilogy has some interesting bits in it, but it never reaches the quality of the first book. i would read the other two if you are interested in learning more about the history of the setting and getting some explanations for some of the weird stuff in the first book, but if you want a similar atmosphere or characters to the first book, you will probably be disappointed.
What's in it? I'd like to know.
Is there a point in reading poetry like this if it's been translated from a different language? Isn't that part of the point of the poem, is it's supposed to rhyme? Rimbaud sounds like a good place to start in poetry though. Ug.

Who gives a fuck about an Oxford comma?
But seriously, you're wrong.

Sounds like bread-and-cheese is some sort of fucked up single item.
