Years in print:
A new St. Louis-based "little" magazine called The Walrus Said made its debut here in July. Edited and published by Edward James Berry, a St. Louisan "with a lifelong interest in writing and literature," the magazine's 28-page first issue contains poetry, short fiction, book reviews, photographs, political commentary and excerpts from a booklet called "Personal Reflections on A China Trip."
The next issue of The Walrus Said (the name is from the poem "The Walrus and the Carpenter" from Lewis Carroll's "Through the Looking Glass) will be published in August, Berry said, and will feature a similar mix of writing.
