The South Carolina Review Volume 50.2, Spring 2018
Posted on Saturday March 31, 2018

This number is for George William (Bill) Koon and Frank Louis Day, close friends who were also Clemson’s first two managing editors of The South Carolina Review; may they rest in peace. On August 2, 2017, Frank passed away after a long illness, followed by Bill, on October 3, after a surprisingly short one. The near coincidence recalls the theme of Bill’s address during the journal’s fortieth-anniversary celebration, “Parallel Lives,” as he called it, after a book he liked by Plutarch. Considering their long association as fellow editors, professors, and department heads, the lives of Bill and Frank were in many ways coincident but parallel—their careers ran “along side by side” The South Carolina Review (see 41.1 [Fall 2008]: 3-4).


The South Carolina Review Volume 50.1, Fall 2017
Posted on Monday July 31, 2017

The maiden issue of The South Carolina Review appeared in November 1968. Its cover listed only the month and year of publication followed by “Vol. 1 No. 1 $1.00” under a simple yet elegant banner featuring the review’s title. In a statement of editorial practice in this first issue, the founding editors aimed to publish writing that “clarifies, moves, provokes, and inspires.” The cover of this issue returns to the design of its inaugural number as an homage to this ambitious editorial vision, which endures a half-century later. —SCR Editorial Board
