This issue is edited by David M. Johnson, associate professor of English at the University of New Mexico. Introduced with essays by Enrique Lamadrid, V. B. Price, and Luci Tapahanso, Blue Mesa Review #7 contains work by more than fifty contributors, including poets Robert Burlingame, Lyn Lifshin, Harvena Richter, and Jeanne Shannon, short fiction by Bobby Byrd, and E. A. Mares, plus book reviews and essays.
While deeply rooted in the region's multicultural spirituality, the works are at once as diverse and unified as the human condition. From a young doctor coming to terms with his Native American past and unknown future in Cody Wasner's Drawing Blood to a foreign-exchange student discovering himself on the streets of New York City in Mario Materassi's The One Who Fell, Blue Mesa Review features an eclectic blend of today's best writing.
