Down to the River: Portraits of Iowa MusiciansIowa roots musician Greg Brown gazes out from the sepia dust-jacket of Sandra Dyas's Down to the River: Portraits of Iowa Musicians as if he were part of a modern-day American Gothic, setting the tone for a book filled with earthy photographs. This picture is found inside in black and white, opposite a posed shot of Kevin Gordon in front of a door haloed with postcards.

Reader issue #635 For the River Cities' Reader's fourth-annual short-fiction contest, we got mean. Diabolical. Bound-for-hell cruel.

Oh, sure, in the past we gave the challenge of starting or ending with a particular line, or including seven specific words in a story. We've limited you to 200 words.

This year, in addition to the relatively mundane prompts of a photograph and a fortune cookie, we devised what we called the "Wheel of Fortune challenge," in which authors could not use the letters R, S, T, L, N, and E. As you'll see from the winners and other selected entries, that nasty constraint gave us our most creative and playful entries.
