Editor’s Note

Greetings, it's good to be back after a long summer off. This month we are pleased to again showcase the fiction of author Benjamin Roesch. In this latest story Roesch explores the difficulties a gay man encounters after agreeing to serve as a sperm donor for his ex-wife. Also making his second appearance in our journal is folk musician Jeffrey Paul Lupo (now recording under the name St Salvia). After finishing a stint at the London School of Economics Lupo returned to the States to record this month's featured album, California Line, which is supplemented by a stripped down, three-song session recorded exclusively for Fogged Clarity. Our fifty-first edition also features a discussion with San Francisco musician John Vanderslice, reviews of new poetry collections by Sally Ball and Robert Wrigley, and six poets debuting and reading original work. We hope you enjoy. Sincerely, Benjamin Evans Executive Editor, Fogged Clarity
