(Sort of) New Journal

This journal is actually a little older than our own Passport, but I only heard about it a few weeks ago. Absinthe: New European Writing is a multi-genre print journal published twice a year. Three issues are available so far. Absinthe tries to focus on younger and established authors whose work isn't well known in the U.S. I am intrigued by the special section they're planning for a future issue: poetry from Luxemburg. Less than half a million people, three official languages--there's got to be some great stuff there.
