Early New Year's Resolution

Be humble, be brave.
Think smart, be aggressive.
Be a leader, make it happen.
Have fun.

That is all.

Bull, the men's fiction quarterly, is midway through its second year of publication. It's a milestone worth notice.  Few literary outlets have dedicated themselves to the personal accounts of men.  The ones that do never seem to last. The most recent, Ring Fire Voices, was discontinued two years ago.

Solid fiction and essays still find their way into popular mens monthlies, but are often tied to the finites of pop culture.  That's logical and expected. Playing off the news and entertainment cycle is the best way to find common interests among a general audience.
