This is the much anticipated inaugural print edition of Able Muse Review. It's an issue filled with the usual masterfully crafted poetry, fiction, essays, art & photography, and book reviews that have become synonymous with the Able Muse. Thus, after more than a decade of online publishing excellence, Able Muse begins a bold new chapter with this print edition, highlighting works of the same superlative standard as presented all these years in the online edition, and, the recently released Able Muse Anthology (Able Muse Press, 2010).
