Lineup co-editor Patrick Shawn Bagley has announced he is stepping down to devote more time to his novel Bitter Water Blues, and future projects. I'm grateful for Patrick's willingness to take on a labor of love, to help shape The Lineup from concept to finished chapbook last year and this year. Best of luck, my friend.
Patrick gave us ample time to find his successor, poet and police officer Sarah Cortez, who, besides writing some of the most powerful poems in Lineup #1, co-edited The Hit List: The Best of Latino Mystery, on sale tomorrow. Richie, Anthony, and I welcome Sarah and look forward to what she'll bring to The Lineup.
