Tame the Wilderness? is a hot flash, a volume of sorts, it arrives after the season, in retrospect, or perhaps in astonishment that things remain as uncertain as ever. The contributions of art, poetry, essays, vocal exercises, survival instructionals, word puzzles, horoscopes, and dream analysis together provide a temperature and way of seeing, and living through, our spiraling conditions. 
The summer 2020 issue is the first zine by Brief Histories Press, based in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. It is a communal achievement, its production is based in collaboration with our community in Brooklyn and nearby. This collection speaks to matters of being together in the world, addressing ongoing issues of colonialism, race, indigeneity, class, and the climate. Not to mention the current global pandemic, and the courageous social justice movements happening in New York and around the world, from Black Lives Matter and beyond.
