Thank you Alex, for taking the interview and poems. I'd also like to thank Tim Murphy and Gregory Dowling for their enthusiasm, in various ways. It's a privilege to meet my dad shoulder to shoulder in a venue I admire so thoroughly. And Gregory, your essay on my dad's poetry is sharp and emotionally intelligent.
I've now read the entire issue and do not want to pick favourites. Suffice it to say that I can think of few journals or magazines so consistently excellent and well-conceived. Congratulations.
