The Fairfield Review
About The Winter 2004 Edition
Welcome! We greet you with a warm Winter 2004 Edition, where passion's heat, memory's flames, and spring's promise (as well as other themes) melt the arctic cold here, in New England.
We'll start in soft pink in Amy Fanning's Opposite of a Fade In. Dive right into Valentine's Day red with Seduction, by Bonnie Enes, and change hues again with Suzanne Westhaver's Greener Skies and Halsted's Housewares by Rose Drew. Cool down further with Aquila, Arizona by Jeffrey Alfier.
Continue further into childhood's past with The Barrens by Samuel Wharton, The Turtles by Isabelle Ghaneh, Anita Jay Durkin's Promised,. and our first short story, Impressions, by Kumar Narayanan. Finish, grown up, in Seb Parker's Smoke.
We are pleased to introduce a set of poems by Lyn Lifshin, a new author to The Fairfield Review, whose works create a memory mosaic. Start with Middlebury Bee Man Dies and travel through Champlain, Branbury, the Lakes at Night, Nights it was Too Hot to Stay in the Apartment, Some Afternoons When Nobody was Fighting, and Lake Champlain,our winter issue Editor's Choice.
Lessons learned in youth continue in the story William Eisner's The Turks Versus the Armenians. Flying towards spring, read John M. Valentine's The Great Santini. Speaking of great men, we elevate the status in our classic poem, Sympathy, by Paul Laurence Dunbar. Take flight from there, through the seasons with Taylor Hagood's A Pause and Doug Tanoury's At the Lake. Continue with a tour of the local market in Retail Egyptology, also by Doug Tanoury. To finish, visit The Landlord Next Door by Don Langford and be drawn in by Ada Jeffrey's Gravitas.

February, replete with President's birthdays, and tributes to Black History, and Valentines, struggles to leap into spring. We are chagrined that the ground hog has seen his shadow, but relieved his forecasting powers are even weaker than the long-term forecasts of New England meteorologists. We can tell you from recent experience that the wind in this part of the world uncovers ice in all the wrong places. We take solace that spring brings hope external.
