With the Winter FeatureJennifer Wallace's Sonnet Featurenewly delivered, The
Cortland Review staff took the month of January off while the left-brained types amongst us (Guy
Shahar, Jim Lewis, and Greg Nicholl) managed the migration of our entire Website to a new and much larger
server, thus securing TCR's ten years of text and audio archives and providing space for more of what
we do best well into the distant future.
In addition to our new server, TCR reports an audio upgrade. From this issue forward,
you will be able to hear TCR audio via Adobe
Flash Player, probably already downloaded on your computer. With Flash, when you click on the audio
symbol, you'll enjoy the convenience of immediately streaming audio without having to wait for a download.
If you are unable to hear the audio on this issue's pages, you need to download Flash Player which is free
Audio designated by the RealAudio
symbol from Issues and Features prior to 2007 are still accessible via RealPlayer. RealPlayer can be downloaded
So it is with profound respect and sadness that The Cortland Review says goodbye to
Jim Lewis, TCR's longtime general magician in all matters technical, now promoted to Web Manager Emeritus
with our sincere gratitude for his sticking with us long enough to make those two major changes. Jim's
five-plus years of time, skill, dedication, and unflappable heart through hundreds of nocturnal hours are
the reason The Cortland Review has landed uninterruptedly in your in-box, and everyone at TCR wishes
Jim good luck, God speed, and a well-deserved rest. Greg Nicholl, who joined TCR in August, will move into
Jim's posh corner office with the skyline view and "Web Manager" on the door.
As we celebrate Jim Lewis's contribution to The Cortland Review, we celebrate also
the addition of two new staff: Poetry Editor Scott Challener, a teacher in the College of Arts and Sciences
Writing Program at Boston University and a contributor to TCR's Issue 33, and Fiction Editor Jason Githens,
just graduated from Warren Wilson's M.F.A Program for Writers. Welcome to both of you!
And we send wishes for safe travel to staffer Seth Perlow, who is languishing somewhere in
Paris during this semester's sojourn prior to beginning his PhD studies.
Thus it is that The Cortland Review presents the new and familiar voices of Issue 34.
See you at AWP in Atlanta!
