Small press publishers are getting quite inventive in how they explore and execute new formats for sharing the work of artists. Case in point is Kindling, a literary journal which publishes its issues on a series of 20 4X6 cards contained in an envelope which carries the table of contents on its cover. I have a 250-word short story in the current issue of Kindling, #5, about an African-American boy who cares for his opera-singing, mentally unstable mother with the help of a retired tuxedo maker from Milano.
