The goal of Del Sol Review is to publish the best work available anywhere, and only the best work. We do not compromise the publication due to political considerations, and we do not publish inferior work simply because a "name" tag comes attached. We do not publish writers because of their connections to us or anyone else. We reject such activities as harmful to the art. We publish a new issue only when we deem it ready.

"Woodchuck vs. the Hank Williams Zombie"
by Craig Paulenich
Blood will tell you
Blood remembers your face
Blood mumbles riddles,
Blood says, "Catch me if you can."
Blood tells who and when,
Blood knows which foot fits the slipper.
The National Malleable is improbably
Hulking electric furnaces tear the ozoned air,
A dozen times a day
Opiate flame, smell of burnt bentonite,
