Winter in Istanbul

The Winter Issue of ISTANBUL LITERARY REVIEW is live, and what a panacea for the winter doldrums! ILR aims for an international readership with international contributors, with editors from Turkey and the United States.

I am honored my short story Wolves and Butterflies landed in this issue, alongside such talents as Michelle Elvy, Michael Dickes, James Lloyd Davis, Matthew Hamilton, Jules Archer, and James Robison. Thank you Susan Tepper and Gloria Mindock for including my story in this stellar journal.

All that reading will likely make you hungry, so take a peek at the recipes - yum! Peace, Linda


  1. I really found this story sad but also strong and defiant.

  2. Congratulations, Linda! I'll click over there now.

  3. YAY!!! Congrats!!

    Does this mean you get to go to Istanbul? :D

  4. That is a beautiful piece, Linda. Congrats.
    You are gifted at penning the eloquent contrasts of life and death from a unique perspective. Powerful ending.
