Hello, blog readers! I hope you’re all enjoying the weekend. Now that the reading period for the Jet Fuel Review‘s latest issue is closed, our editors are hard at work reviewing all of the submissions. Issue #13 is well on its way! In the meantime, lots of new material has gone up here on the blog. Let’s take a look back at some recent posts.
Several weeks ago, a new series called Día Con Miguel began here on the blog. This series is brought to you by Miguel Soto, our Special Sections Editor. So far, Miguel has written three posts in this series. Right now you can read his analyses of We came all the way from Cuba so you could dress like this? by Achy Obejas, I Am Not Your Negro by James Baldwin, and The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy.
If you’re looking for opinions on films and comics, we’ve got that as well! Film Blogger Donatas Ružys recently reviewed Kong: Skull Island. And our Comic Blogger, Quinn Stratton, has written what he calls an “introductory spiel” on Mickey Mouse.
In recent weeks, Sabrina Parr has written several more reviews for her Book Corner. Be sure to check out her posts on Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson, The Cellar by Natasha Preston, and Embrace by Jessica Shirvington.
Last, but not least, we have a new student feature up on the blog. In this installment, Lewis University students Heather Ray and Courtney Dial offer their takes on the retro horror film The House of the Devil.
I hope you’ve enjoyed what the blog has offered throughout the month of March. We hope to see you around as we count down to the next issue of the Jet Fuel Review.
