This week we have an urban fantasy of gangsters and colour prejudice in America from John Kaniecki, followed by terrorism and cannibalism in post-apocalyptic Cumbria from Gary Murphy. Steve Laker returns with The Child Who Wished for Nothing, while elsewhere in the webzine, The Schlocking Truth interviews Steve about his book The Paradoxicon.
Seamus Esparza's protagonist has a drunken night on the town in Golok, and Sandro D. Fossemò provides a new, improved translation of his previously published story The Cinema Show. A Knock at the Door concludes as mysteriously as it began. The attack on Mr Trelawny is investigated in The Jewel of the Seven Stars. And the Yankee at the Court of King Arthur plans to fight magic with science.
Meanwhile, if you happen to be in the North West of England, and would like a chance to meet horror author Ramsey Campbell, among others, (including your ‘umble editor), why not come down to the Wirral History, Mystery, Music, Mind, Body and Soul Fair on 23rd May?
