Can't start a fire without a Spark

Did you know that the good folks at Humanities Washington publish a magazine called Spark? It's true! and the latest issue of Spark is now online in PDF form. In this issue, you'll find a new poem from Sherman Alexie, a history of Washington literature as told in 14 books, a discussion of the long history of fake news, and a new short story by Spokane author Jess Walter. It has a fantastic first sentence:

Go read. And support Humanities Washington when you can. They do good work in support of storytellers in Washington state, and they help bring exciting new work into the world.
