this is the latest issue of Washington's most revered and irreverent literary
magazine. For me its highlight is Steven Moore's "Nympholepsy,"
a despairing meditation on love, literature and unappeasable longing:
"Still she haunts me." Surely it belongs in one of those anthologies
of the best essays of the year. Certainly no man past 40 will read it
without a pang of recognition." --Michael Dirda, Washington

The mag was always an eclectic mix of graphics, interviews,
reviews and poetry and fiction, and was legendary for changing format
from issue to issue. There were four cassette issues with music and spoken
word performances by everybody from Chemlab's Jared Hendrickson and Baltimore's
gothic folk group Lambs Eat Ivy, to poets as diverse in terms of style
as Rosmarie Waldrop, Maxine Clair, Reuben Jackson, and Silvana Straw, and
fiction writers like Carmen Delzell. Now edited by Richard Peabody and
Lucinda Ebersole, who look forward to continuing the Gargoyle tradition.
