This issue includes a set of close-analysis book reviews of academic titles by Anna Faktorovich and Morgan Connor. Faktorovich's reviews dive deeply into a few of the topics covered in these university press titles, especially in cases where Faktorovich disagrees with the conclusion. One of these extended articles questions if the problem is international espionage and hacking in general, and not Russian state or independent-actor spying on or interference in US elections. She also discusses the failures of past historians to truly revise history as new data has become available. A discussion of early printing history also explains how this field was designed to be monopolistic and propagandistic. A few of the reviews mention Faktorovich's invention of a computational-linguistics attribution method that has re-attributed the British Renaissance to a Workshop of six ghostwriters, and her current work on a modernization series that makes accessible never-before-translated texts from this period with annotations that prove the re-attribution claims. The essays section opens with Faktorovich's personal account of precisely what it was like to have no electricity during below-zero temperatures in the 2021 Texas Power Crisis; the strategies used to avoid freezing, as well as philosophical contemplations about this problem are presented. In two of the other essays, Lesly F. Massey writes about Biblical inerrancy and confirmation bias. Susie Gharib writes about jewels in Oscar Wilde. And Keith Moser writes about family and mourning. An extensive poetry section includes works by Victor Basta, Mary Ann Dimand, Louis Gallo, Nicholas Godec, Michael Green, King Grossman, Lloyd Jacobs, Casey Killingsworth, Ned Kraft, Rob Luke, Fabrice Poussin, David Reuter, Timothy Robbins, Will Walker, and John Zedolik. There are also short fiction stories by Tamara Adelman, Tony Artuso, R. Sebastian Bennett, Brent Johnson, Mandeep Kaur, Kathleen Murphey and Peter M. Sullivan.
