Michael Carson, who has a review in this issue, is joining the Numéro Cinq masthead as a contributor. He’ll be doing reviews and essays, including an essay on story structure coming out in the May issue and another book review on the hob for later. Michael is a short story writer and a veteran of the Iraq war, but best of all, he is intelligent, generous, curious, and thinks obsessively about books and writing. Fits right in.
Michael Carson lives on the Gulf Coast. His non-fiction has appeared at The Daily Beast and Salon, and his fiction in the short story anthology, The Road Ahead: Stories of the Forever War. He helps edit the Wrath-Bearing Tree and is currently working towards an MFA in Fiction at the Vermont College of Fine Arts.
