Magazine. Poetry. Fiction. Literary Nonfiction. THE BROWN ISSUE is Fairy Tale Review's seventh annual issue. It was Guest Edited by acclaimed novelist Timothy Schaffert, who writes in his Editor's Note: "Brown is the color of the wolf, of the harvest-ravaged farm, of thatched roofs, of cinnamon cake, of autumn, of snuff, of wooden boxes (bridal chests, watch cases, humidors, coffins). If ever there was a color more suited to earthly existence it's the color of earth itself. And earthly existence is at the very heart of fairy tales, despite all the unearthly circumstances depicted." Contributors include E. Annette Binder, Maud Casey. Melissa Coss Aquino, Elizabeth Crane, Melissa Cundieff-Pexa, Ben Debus, Brandel France de Bravo, Owen King, Drew Krewer, Peter Kuper, Sarah Messer, Brian Oliu, Lisa Perrin, Judith Slater, Dayana Stetco, and Jim Tolan.
