86.6 is a testament to the tenacity typical in the industry. Photographer Justin Rogers has created a compelling cover with lines from this issue cast over a server’s bowed silhouette. Read on and you’ll find an intimate conversation with recording artist S. Grim, covering his perseverance through addiction and the way he’s developed his music successes around spiritual rebirth. Prose-writer Sam Tarr will take you on a zen journey through the headspace of a burning-out head chef, while poet Shelbi Church lands readers in an alternative universe in which tripping on the stairs sends the dining room into surreal tumult.

Johnson’s harrowing hurricane tale, before Mike Ferrin (Managing Editor) provides a taste of what it’s like to take omelet orders while dressed for arctic expedition.
