Sol: English Writing in Mexico, Edited by Eva Hunter
Mexico City, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Ajijic, Cuernavaca, Tepoztlan, Todos Santos, La Paz... so many Mexican cities and towns have been attracting U.S., Canadian, English, and other English language writers, why not a literary magazine? Well, now we have one. Eva Hunter has just launched a beautiful new on-line literary journal focusing on English language writing in Mexico: Sol (which means "sun"), with fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. The inaugural issue includes works by James Cervantes, Tony Cohan, Eva Hunter, Wim Coleman, Jan Harvey, Carolyn Hernandez, Halvard Johnson, Bill Pearlman, Pat Perrin, Margaret Tallis, and Yours Truly, with an excerpt from my novel, just out in paperback, The Last Prince of the Mexican Empire. Read Hunter's introduction to the inaugural issue here. Viva Sol!
