From Issue 14 (Oct 2011)

Here we are, another month, another online issue.

So let me not waste any time. Our Oct 2011 issue is once again packed with original fiction starting with our cover story which will be available from 4th of October, beautifully illustrated by Hendrik Gericke, “The Treasons”, by A.A. Garrison which is about a  father and son road trip across a desolate land.

Our novelette for this month is “Jiang Shi”, by William Mitchell, in which an opium trader deals with constant chronic pain by sampling his goods, until he finds another source of relief, and that will be online from 11th of October.
On the 18th of October we have “The Watcher in The Corner” by Michael Hodges, a poignant story about a being who watches a family, silently, from its corner of the ceiling.

And we close of this issue on the 25th of October with a reprint by Davin Ireland entitled “Engaging the Idrl” and is about a group of soldiers securing a foreign planet.

We also have our usual non-fiction pieces, firstly the insanity of Mark Sykes’s Sixth Sense of Humour, which this month is about the end of the world and how to avoid it, or, at the very least, make the best of it. The second piece is my pondering about our time in space and whether or not it has passed, or is only just beginning.

Our feature interview, this month, (published on the 18th) is with Joan De La Haye, whose debut novel Shadows will fuck you up for life, but in a good way.

And so, along with our usual Writers Cornered interviews, that’s our issue for this month. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do, and do drop us a line if you do, either via email or leave a comment on the site.
