News: Issue Forty-Four Preview

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.

Issue forty-four of Neon Literary Magazine.

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.
