THE HAMILTON STONE REVIEW ~~~  Fall, 2004 (Issue No. 4)

All Fiction Issue
Featuring Members of the Hamilton Stone Collective



We hope in this issue to give a sampling of Hamilton Stone writers, whose reading of the human condition varies as widely as their style. But let them speak for themselves in their Appalachian, New York, Southern, Midwestern accents.

                                                         -- Rebecca Kavaler & Edith Konecky, Editors
