After several years of inactivity, Newark Review has come alive.

Since this is our first appearance since the NEWARK-BORN INTERNATIONALIST ELECTROpoet Allen Ginsberg's passing from matter to spirit, I dedicate this set of writings to him.  He remains an extremely valuable teacher.  An interview with Allen, conducted by Nikki Stiller and Sam Wallace, appeared in our last issue; the transcript is now attached to our web site.

The Department of Humanities and Social Sciences at New Jersey Institute of Technology sponsors and supports Newark Review.  Grateful thanks are due to Professors Norbert Elliot, Nikki Stiller (former editor), Amy Hufnagel (hardware sharing), Kimako's Blues People, The Fringe, & Eliot Katz, and all contributors.  Please enjoy.
