Authored by Dr. Anna Faktorovich

Volume V, Issue 3 of the Pennsylvania Literary Journal marks the end of its fifth volume, its fifth year and the thirteenth issue in print. The issue includes a short fiction story from the Editor, Anna Faktorovich, "Murder on a Crab Boat", which was inspired by a Discovery Channel show, Deadliest Catch. This issue also includes a short story about a love-struck drug addict from Louis Gallo. These two are followed by a section of critical essays, including Linda Gill's critical essay on Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey and the relationship between gender and religion in the work, then Will Clemens' essay on why the TV show The Big Bang Theory has been successful, then Zachary Tavlin's essay on the cinematic subject, and finally Natacha Guyot's essay on the revision of Indian myths in Bollywood movies. The next section includes a few poems from four writers: James Grabill, Leonore Wilson, Sharon Lynne Joffe and Noel Sloboda. The last section is composed of two academic book reviews. The first review is by Dongho Cha, and she reviews Powers of Possibility from Oxford UP. The second review is by Laura Madeline Wiseman, who released a poetry book with Anaphora a month ago, and reviews the Hornbook from Horseless Press.
