#227 (Sept. 2017) "Cryptlipo." The theme is the product  of the editor’s impenetrable (and/or constrained) imagination. Thus, use your own imagination and submit covert texts, stories with hidden meanings,  or texts composed under one or more Oulipian constraints. (Avoid the overdone N+7.) OR create your own constraint. Give us wordplay that leaps off the page and will haunt the reader.  DEADLINE: August 15th.
