We’ve just been informed that that “The Ring of Kerry” by Dennis McFadden, which appeared in NER 33.2, has been selected for Best American Mystery Stories 2013, edited by Otto Penzler and Lisa Scottoline. The book will come out this fall.
And three poems from NER have been chosen for Best American Poetry 2013, guest edited by Denise Duhamel (series editor David Lehman). We can’t tell you which poems, but we can congratulate the authors: Laura Kasischke, Adrienne Su, and Paisley Rekdal. The book will be released in September.
