The retrospective of all the issues makes us, the editors of the Potomac Review, proud. We have showcased new voices and famous voices.  The works in this volume are not the only wonderful pieces we uncovered, but budget constraints of course held us in check.  Your advance orders will guarantee your copies.

I am back on board as editor in chief to shepherd this volume to final production, but this issue would not be possible without the dedication and hard work of many editors. The editorial board of 50 is several layers deep:  original associate editors, previous editors in chief, the editorial staff of myself, managing editors, poetry editors and Zachary Benavidez, who stays the course back in the office while I’m bouncing about on leave.

Many thanks to all our editors and to our wonderful contributors. Subscribe now to make sure you get this issue and #51 which is already in the planning stages.
