Getting to Know Us: Adnan Mahmutovic

I'd like to introduce Adnan Mahmutovic not just as a blogger but as a writer, artist, commentator, and much more. While posts on Adnan's blog UNDER THE MIDNIGHT SUN are sporadic, they are always thoughtful and erudite. I was introduced to Adnan when he submitted his short story "Integration Under the Midnight Sun,"  to The Rose & Thorn. "Integration" is one of the stories in his excellent collection Refuge[e], and I still consider it among the best, if not the best short fiction the zine ever published. We nominated  that story for every award we participated in, but, sadly, due to a certain bias that still exists against zines, it probably wasn't taken as seriously as it deserved.

I continue in my belief, however, that one day I will say, "We knew Adnan when..."

Don't just check out his blog, please do yourself a favor and check out his writing.
