Neon Literary Magazine #38

Image by Diána Farkas

Issue 38 of Neon begins with a world in which everyone has been swallowed by whales, and ends with a recurring nightmare story about a kitten. In between there are desert islands, floods and plagues, flings and wounds and Facebook, the possibility of cannibalism, and a series of lesser-known wars. The lineup includes Steve Subrizi, Peter Branson, Ian Mullins, Holly Day, Claire Joanne Huxham, Jonathan Greenhause, Mark Vanner, Alina Rios, Sam Preminger, and Huang Kaishan. The cover image is by Diána Farkas Fruzsina. As well as the usual selection of fiction and poetry, there is also an extract from Karen Heuler’s recent novel Glorious Plague.

Neon is free to read online, and costs just £4.00 for a physical copy. In its new, perfect-bound format each issue is around 70 pages, and is photo-illustrated in black and white. Free copies of Neon‘s tiny anthology of micro-fiction Battery Pack (featuring the miniature masterpieces of David Hartley, Henry Northmore, Sarah Butler, Tamasine Reilley, Jenny Mackenzie, and Tracy Fells) will be distributed along with this issue.

Published summer 2014 (print and online).

“The Death Of The Motherless Kitten” by Huang Kaishan is also now available as a Neon Single in PDF, EPUB and MOBI formats.

News: Issue #38 Preview And New Format

Issue 38 Preview

For the past month I’ve been hard at work putting together issue 38 of Neon. This edition begins with a world in which everyone has been swallowed by whales, and ends with a recurring nightmare story about a kitten. In between there are desert islands, floods and plagues, flings and wounds and Facebook, the possibility of cannibalism, and a series of lesser-known wars. The lineup for issue 38 includes Steve Subrizi, Peter Branson, Ian Mullins, Holly Day, Claire Joanne Huxham, Jonathan Greenhause, Mark Vanner, Alina Rios, Sam Preminger, and Huang Kaishan. As well as the usual selection of fiction and poetry, there is also an extract from Karen Heuler’s recent novel Glorious Plague.

This edition of the magazine is particularly special, as I’m moving to a new format. Not only will issues be almost thirty pages longer than before, but they will now be perfect bound rather than stapled. Neon will move from being a quarterly magazine to one that is published three times a year – don’t worry though, all subscribers will still receive the full number of issues they’ve paid for. And overall I’ll be publishing more writing than ever – putting out a total of approximately two-hundred-and-ten pages per year, rather than one-hundred-and-twenty.

There will be a slight increase in price per issue, but with the new schedule the price for a subscription will rise by only £1. Individual issues will now cost £4 each. I hope you agree that the slicker format and increased length of each issue makes it worth the extra £1.50. For the time being though, you can still pre-order issue 38 at the current price  of just £2.50. You can also subscribe now for the current price of just £10 plus postage and still receive four issues. This offer will be open until issue 38 is published, at which point the price increase will come into effect. Just visit the shop to make an order!

“Two Seasons Of Crashing” by Steve Subrizi

Image by Andreas Krappweis

I was pacing the edge of town until the house
had gone to bed so I could get on the couch
and not look at anybody. I hid from the rain
beneath the awning of the rug emporium.

A sparrow flew into one of the display
windows and then flew into the other
display window and then into the first
display window and then it finally flew
away into the hard autumn rain.
