Issue forty-four of Neon is set to launch in a blaze of confetti on Thursday 9th February 2017. Tickets to the launch party have sold out, but that doesn’t mean you can’t pre-order the issue and get your hands on it before almost anyone else.
In this edition we visit the quaint yet dystopian English town of Scarfolk, observe the goings on in a haunted stock room, meet a rather more respectable imaginary version of the president of the United States of America in a dream prison, sit in on a number of brutal executions (one historical, one sexual) and witness the creation of some seriously amazing fantasy inventions. There’s a graphic short story by acclaimed illustrator Stephen Collins, and some beautiful illustrations by Jia Sung.
That aside, issue forty-four is filled with mind-shredding fiction and poetry by Thomas Evans, Elizabeth Sackett, Ed Cottrell, Cheryl Pearson, Frederick Pollack Eric Shattuck, Molly O’ Brien and James Hodgson. You can pre-order it here, or check back next week to download it in digital form.
