The Chimaera and Belonging

Part serpent, part goat, part lioness — the fabulous beast must roam unknown lands, always searching for its like...

The Chimaera has wandered far and brings to you now its 'Belonging' themed issue, exploring notions of both belonging and alienation through a variety of texts: poems, stories and articles that engage with the topic from a variety of perspectives.

As well there is a spotlight feature on English poet Alison Brackenbury, including nine of her new poems, an interview, and a review of her new book Singing in the Dark.

The Chimaera's lair is well-stocked with poetry, reviews and fiction for your enjoyment. Just be careful The Gryphon doesn't see you there!

After you've roamed hither, thither and yon with The Chimaera, leap into a barbed-wire canoe and start paddling upstream to The Shit Creek Review issue #7. The theme is 'Masks', the poetry is hot, the art is enough to make you lose your paddle!
