The venerable Ploughshares just released its 100th issue, and did so almost entirely sans fanfare. The 35 year-old literary magazine opted against a best-of retrospective or a compilation of essays by past guest editors. Instead, it’s business as usual for the Emerson-based, Plough-and-Stars-founded journal. Ron Carlson is the issue’s guest editor, and the volume includes fiction by western-tough Pam Houston (whose short story collection Cowboys Are My Weakness is an old fave), Ann Hood, Gish Jen, Alan Cheuse, and Tim Schell, among others. On the Ploughshares website, active links on the current issue’s table of contents page are changed daily.
