nominations to the Best of the Web 2010 anthology...

I'm pleased to nominate these poets and their works to the Best of the Web 2010 anthology (Dzanc Books):

George Moore, “Survivor Tactics” (Fall 2009)

Eileen Tabios, “Alchemy at the Maykadeh: Dinner with Philip Lamantia” (Spring 2009)

Yun Wang, “Meditation on Hair” (Broadside #12, Fall 2008 - December)


All three are gifted writers, and their works have made Blue Fifth Review a stronger venue.
