* AHG will conclude publication with our next issue, AHG 5.3, June 2016.


AHG 5.3, our 19th issue, will be published in June. It will be our final issue, so of course we won't be holding any submissions over for the future. Be sure to send all submissions by the deadline of March 15th.

Submissions received after the deadline will not be considered.

Though the June issue of A Hundred Gourds will be our last issue, rest assured that all of our issues, from 1.1 to 5.3, and all of the work published therein will remain accessible in the future.




* Renku Section has concluded with AHG 5.2


We thank Kala Ramesh for her willingness to join the AHG Team as Guest Renku editor for this issue.

AHG is not accepting renku submissions for our final issue.

AHG 5.2 is the last issue of AHG to contain a Renku section. William Sorlien, in his notices to some contributors last year, warned that he may not be able to continue because of other pressing responsibilities. That has turned out to be the case. We wish him well in his future endeavours.

Willie served as Renku editor from our second issue, published in March 2012, to our December 2015 issue. He provided the Feature, ‘From There to Here: Conversations with John E. Carley’, for A Hundred Gourds 2.3, 2013 and wrote John’s In Memoriam for our March 2014 issue.
