Star 82 Review is a new art and lit online and print-on-demand magazine. The written pieces contain between 14-1000 words; they are meant to be easily read both onscreen and on the page. We have objects of wonder that are pivots for the works: ruler, pineapple. baseball, pencil sharpener, knife, scarecrow, wallpaper, half of a twenty dollar bill, and more. The categories included are: flash, postcard lit, art post images, and erasure texts.
Issue 1.1 contains fiction, creative nonfiction, essays, poems, photographs, a re-imagined and altered text, stories accompanied by photographs, and small paintings that look like postage stamps. The Romantic poet Novalis is often quoted as saying that we become aware of the magic in the world by seeing the strange as familiar and the familiar as strange, among other things. We are aiming for the magic, the strange, the human.
