Issue 2, Spring 2014 (digital)
Genre-defying fiction and artwork by JJ Lee, Sarah Pinsker, Trevor Shikaze, Milo James Fowler, AY Dorsey, and more!
In issue 2, things come in pairs
We have two offerings from JJ Lee, the acclaimed author of The Measure of a Man: the Story of a Father, a Son, and a Suit. “Built to Love” is a satiric and chilling sci-fi tale, and it comes with a fabulous painted cover by JJ.
“JJ Lee’s “Built to Love” was so good! I really liked his book Measure of a Man – this is completely different but just as intriguing. The whole issue was a joy to read, and a lot of the stories you can read in spare moments. Good and pulpy.” – Amanda
- Two very different stories of the undead in the Old West and the New: “Mercer’s Ghost” by Milo James Fowler and “Not Dying in Central Texas” by Sarah Pinsker.
“[‘Not Dying in Central Texas’ is] unbelievably refreshing, touching, and beautiful.” – Alex Ristea
- Two stories that take you literally to the edge: “Falling” a cautionary paranormal adventure into temptation by Angela Dorsey, and the beautiful, heartrending “Poor Thing” by KM Vaghela.
- A pair of stories about couples, and third wheels that bring them back together: “The Tun” by Trevor Shikaze, and the aptly named “Double or Nothing” by Jacqui Hartwood.
- Two takes on inspiration: “Techne” by EL Firestine, and “The Capture of the Muse” by Susan Pieters.
“[Capture of the Muse is] powerful, poignant, beautifully crafted and the multi-layered . . . Lovely work,” – Jacqui Hartwood
- A double length excerpt of Allaigna’s Song by JM Landels.
- And finally you’ll meet the improbable heroic duo of a witch and her goat in an excerpt of Tatterhood, the brand new graphic novel from the ludicrously talented Kris Sayer.
