With twenty-four fabulous back issues, one to mark each day of Advent, we hope to share with you the joy and magic of the season. When you purchase an issue on its corresponding day on our Advent Calendar, not only will you be collecting great literature, but you will also receive a special gift.
Today is the twenty-second day of Advent, and the issue that holds the secret prize is Issue 22, Spring 2019
Heed the tantalizing call of cover artist Herman Lau‘s Purple Siren and dive into this issue, where
- Science Fiction Grand Master Robert Silverberg births a new religion from a social experiment gone wrong in ‘The Pope of the Chimps’.
- A father’s grief leads to a son’s identity crisis in ‘Snapshots’, by Leo X Robertson; and Susan Pieters shows us it’s all about perspective in ‘Spin Doctor’.
- you’ll find devilish, cold, and ill-tempered poetry from David Ly, Mary Willis, and Heather Christle.
- Kathryn Yelinek’s protagonist must work outside her element to save the man she loves in ‘The Nyx’s Wife’, and a young paralegal meets all sorts of interesting commuters in ‘Late Night Fun Facts on the No. 65’ by JTF King.
- The 2018 Raven Short Story Contest winner, Cheryl Wollner, crafts a story of friendship that is impervious to fire with ‘Girls Who Dance in the Flames’.
- We’ve got a new novella from Mel Anastasiou, The Extra, that is all the aces; and Allaigna must bid bitter farewells in the next instalment of Allaigna’s Song: Aria, by JM Landels.
- And our graphic short turns your whole world upside down in ‘The Endless Drop’, by Matthew Nielsen and Minna Hakkola.
