Welcome to the Summer 2004 edition of Turbula!

We've got a kick-ass issue for you this go-round ... even more kick-ass than usual. Interviews with Taj Mahal and James Cotton, another short story from Dan McClenaghan, another new fiction writer, a whole passel of really cool poetry, and a first-hand look at life on SanFran's streets from a cabbie who works Baghdad by the Bay. Plus Lucy Komisar and Charlene Baldridge cover New York's and San Diego's theater scenes, respectively, and we add a whole new batch of CD reviews.

And congratulations are in order to Turbula contributors Jacqueline Zhang, Michael J. Williams and Jamie Reno. All three were recently recognized by the San Diego chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists in its annual journalism contest – Michael J. took second in the online arts/entertainment category for his appreciation of Mongo Santamaria in the Spring 2003 issue, Jamie took second for best magazine column for his Capos and Consonants columns in our Music section, while Jackie got an honorable mention for her look at Bali's male prostitutes in the Winter 2003 issue. Turbula itself took second in the Online Entertainment Site category, which is a mark of respect for the outstanding writing all of our contributors bring each issue. None of this would be possible without them.
