Hello again. It's great to be able to present to you another edition of the Honest Ulsterman. As ever there are interviews with local and not so local writers such as June Caldwell, Wayne Holloway-Smith and Zeina Hashem Beck amongst others. There are features on various aspects of writing and language and we even get a glimpse into climbing vocabulary courtesy of Niall Grimes. I didn't know what a 'Hard Very Severe' was or where in Donegal the 'Poisoned Glen' is. We also glimpse a frustrating present with Éamonn Brown, this month's Featured Artist and the Xenpohon Project by McGibbon/O'Lynn presents us with a terrifying future. As ever I have to thank everyone that contributed to the issue: our panel of writers/interviewers, our interviewees, everyone who submitted to our open submission call and of course our readership. We couldn't do it without you.


Greg McCartney,
