Our very own MFAer Alyson Foster's story, "Cooped," is up on Smokelong Review's issue 26 (www.smokelong.com/flash/alysonfoster26.asp). The illustration for the story was custom made by my favorite artist, Matthew Curry. Visit his virtual playground: http://ninjacruise.com/

Keep your eyes peeled for her forthcoming stories in The Iowa Review, Kenyon Review, and Glimmer Train.
