Volume 92 No. 3, May 2018

World Literature Today welcomes summer with five brilliant stories in a cover feature devoted to international Speculative Fiction. Other highlights include Alberto Chimal’s fanciful “periodic table of books”; a tribute to Claribel Alegría; verse by Mahtem Shiferraw and poets from Egypt, Tunisia, and Spain; Masatsugu Ono on compassion as “a sort of tender prayer for others”; plus additional essays, sf and summer reading recommendations, five of our favorite literary Instagram pages, and a visit to Manhattan’s Mysterious Bookshop. As always, a generous selection of book reviews, featured new books, and online exclusives round out the issue.
