We’re switching things up, reformatting, having a lot of fun cleaning up all the content from the past 3 years of Cobalt Review. So hang tight, look around. Check out the issues page. In a week or two, everything should be cleaned up and ready to roll for the next three years.

A few changes of note: All online issues will be converted to PDFs. Issues 10 and 11, as well as the most recent baseball issue, are already available in this format. I’ll be converting Issues 1-9, and replacing the original landing pages with PDF download links, very soon. But everything will be available through all the changes. So don’t worry. It’s all here. The links are all the same. Just a little odd-looking during the conversion.

Thanks for your patience!

From the 2014 Baseball Issue

  • At home, thirty blocks south, we baked scones to the tattoo of the kettle and the drone of Mel Allen’s loamy Going, going, gone.

    Liz Dolan
  • He is joined by Tommy Heinsohn, and after the obligatory debate over whether Miller Lite tastes great or is less filling (and Ueck, who’s been waiting his whole life for this comet, doesn’t want to be bloated for its arrival), Heinsohn asks for a beer.

    Garret J. Brown
  • The dust of the softball field, the smell of leather gloves, and the salt of cracking sunflower seeds once meant imagining away the outcast at school and the desperate peacemaker at home.

    Nikki Thompson
  • I opened the small, folded, lined sheet. I read the spidery, jagged cursive: No way Babe would’ve said good night at the elevators.

 “One thing that I am becoming more and more excited about is the multitude of ways that Cobalt can demonstrate a commitment to the relationships with our authors. These are really good people, and fun people to work with. We care about the things that they care about.”
