Very gratefult to the excellent poet Felino Soriano for making me aware that Heavy Bear was open to submissions. And incredible impressed by the well-known editrix Jane Crown who responded in 28 (count 'em) minutes to accept vagitus and blood in a bucket for issue 2. That's what we all like to see. Swift and decisive editorial action coupled with the ability to answer emails. Anyway, they have a huge first issue out already and it's here.
