The latest issue of LCRW features magic, killing curses, broken lands and broken lands, a wandering octopus, a robot on the run, invisibility, neighbors, and The Book of Judgment. What is not to love? Our cooking columnist Nicole Kimberling returns with advice on "Feeding Strays" and although we only managed one poem, it's a good one.
