the ixnay reader, volume 4 just came out. You can download it here for free. It includes poetry by CAConrad, Arielle Greenberg, Elizabeth Scanlon, Lewis Warsh, Kirsten Kaschock, Eric Baus, sasha fletcher, Brenda Iijima, Sarah Dowling, Michael Kelleher, and me -- it's the first 16 pages of Old News (excluding a page called "love poem," which I added later, after I sent the editors the work; that page goes after "inside the scowl"). Thanks to Chris and Jenn McCreary.
