Volume 5: Wild Mercury, but in mug form! Cover art of Volume 5 is by the marvelously talented Mary Heebner. The back features an excerpt from "Reeled In," a story in Volume 5: “I saw you then in the summer from the promenade of that county fair as you lay on your back in the near grass and I wandered with girlfriends I barely knew. The late low sun dazzled your tangle of blond hair, and a mustache made you look older, closer to 28—which was good. Demigods of a lesser mythology, callow and vain, ignorant and cruel. Aware of our powers, but not mindful of how fast they might fade, with the sunset, with the summer.” 

This is a limited run of 100.
Regarding which size to order. If you drink a reasonable amount of coffee at a time (by which I mean two liquid cups), that's about what the smaller one holds. If, like those of us at Lit Jo, you drink coffee by the gallon, go for the bigger one!
Whether you're drinking your morning coffee, evening tea, or something in between – this mug's for you! It's sturdy and glossy with a vivid print that'll withstand the microwave and dishwasher.
