The trick or treaters have come & gone, mourners & revenants have laid their flowers & said their prayers at cemeteries throughout all the towns & villages in Mexico. We feature Laura Juliet Woods' "An Offering for Your Altar" & a gallery of photos by James Cervantes in commemoration of the season as well as poetry by Mario Duarte, Abigail Carl-Klassen, Elijah Matthew Tubbs, Alicia Mountain, Cynthia Hogue, Juanita Rey & Abel Folgar.
In Prosa, we continue our serialization of Valerie Jeremijenkos' "A Siblings' Story" along with Abigail Allen's "Night Sounds." Additional artwork by David Rodríguez López can be found in Artefactos. Orale!
