We do, too. The truth, though, is that this economy has been pretty hard on artistic ventures like literary journals. Though times are tough, we're committed to bringing you many more issues of Relief and The Midnight Diner. So we're about to get creative in order to make ends meet. Next week we'll give you the chance to get involved and to show a little love.
Official 4.1 Cover
It's right there in the sidebar, and doesn't it look great?!

New Buy Page
Our Web Editor--who is writing about himself in the third person right now--was up very late last night perfecting a new streamlined Relief store. This is because we will soon be offering all of our issues as eBooks for your computer, Kindle, Sony Reader, etc. We are also discussing expanding our store to include the infamous Relief mug, as seen in pictures below. (We can't make any promises about adding it yet, but if you let us know how much you love it, the chances of it becoming available increase by 100 times--I promise.)
Attention 4.1 Authors
If you are a 4.1 author, please check the e-mail account connected to your Online Submission System account for an e-mail from me. There is some time sensitive information in there, and I don't want you to miss it.
As you can see in the side panel, presales for issue 4.1 are all ready! Order now to ensure that you reserve a copy from the first round of printing.
Also, just under the Relief presales, Lisa Ohlen Harris's new book, Through the Veil, is also available for presales. We've featured two pieces on our blog that didn't make it into her book. They can be found HERE and HERE.
Please support both Relief and Lisa Ohlen Harris by ordering copies of both books.
The official unofficial cover
As you can see in the presale portion of the sidebar, we have a cover for issue 4.1. While it may look impressive there, we're making the final touches to it before we send it off to be printed. When we get the polished cover, it will be featured all over the blog for you to marvel at. Until then, hold on to your feelings of reverence just a bit longer.
