Here we are, another month, another issue.
So let me not waste any time. Our Oct 2011 issue is once again packed with original fiction starting with our cover story, beautifully illustrated by Hendrik Gericke, “The Treasons”, by A.A. Garrison which is about aᅠ 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. “The Watcher in The Corner” is a poignant story about a being who watches a family, silently, from its corner of the ceiling.
Our last story is 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メ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 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メ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.

Till next time,
