Summer 2023


It’s a new take on old cautionary tales. In our Summer 2023 issue, The Deep Dark Burning Woods: Fairytales for the Climate Crisis, we explore the ecology of this ancient storytelling tradition, one rife with lessons, warnings, and hope. Inside:

  • Ken Liu constructs a fairytale with the help of an unlikely sidekick: AI
  • Anne Frank is a warrior princess in Kate Bernheimer’s close reading of The Diary of a Young Girl
  • Carmen Maria Machado and Kelly Link discuss horror, fairytales, and why the terrifying is sublime
  • Kate Lebo eats oysters and remembers selkies
  • Kapka Kassabova celebrates the impossible survival of a colorful Breznitsan tradition

And much more!
