Neon‘s fortieth issue has now been sent to the printer, and should be ready to go out in the first few weeks of March. In this edition we have some seriously unsettling fiction, with stories revolving around horrors as diverse as giant spiders and drive-thru fast food joints. There’s also a selection of poetry and prose-poetry hybrids featuring errant next door neighbours, lurking swamp monsters, and a pill that can make you fall in love. This issue’s authors are Sean Markey, Laura McKee, Sam Kolinski, Paul Clyne, Ruth Brandt, FM Lupinetti, Mack Gelber, Jenny Blackford, Kate Wisel, and Paul French. Sarah Katharina Kayß (issue thirty-six) also returns with another excellent cover image.
If you want to get a copy of the next issue as soon as it’s available, then go ahead and place a pre-order in the shop. Right now you can also subscribe and receive not just the next three issues of the magazine over the course of the coming year, but also a free copy of one of Neon‘s chapbooks The Naming Of Cancer by TS Rosenberg or A Week With Beijing by Meg Eden.
