September 2014 (Issue 16)

The Big Click’s September issue starts your autumn off right with “Man Upstate” by Colby Swift, which has cops, dog bites, missing kids… everything you want when the air is crisp and the leaves are turning gold and red. But if you live somewhere that’s still blazing hot, pick up an issue and read John Mantooth’s “A Sojourner’s Guide to the Black Warrior River Bottoms (And Beyond)” before that first cool morning.
