A laurel and hearty handshake to each of our outstanding nominees, and glittering heaps of gratitude at the feet of all our perspicacious readers and brilliant contributors–we would literally be nothing without you.
Feeling inspired? Regular submissions are always open, so send us a little something. We’re still reading for our Happy Endings Special Issue as well (deadline March 1, 2018).
Be kind and stay weird!
Your Halloween candy may be gone, but Issue Ninety-Five is here to keep you entertained through those cold gray weeks between holiday festivities. Dig into Kelsey Englert’s “Take Me” with a furry friend, play checkers “After Lunch” with Daniel Warner, have a delightfully absurd chat about “Kafka in Paradise” courtesy of Tushar Jain, and have the pockets of your subconscious picked by Tara Campbell’s “The birds are stealing my dreams.” Finally, let Jonny Lindner beam you up to the mothership with this month’s cover art, “UFO.”

While we’re putting the finishing touches on our waxed leaf collages, fall harvest wreaths, and army of living scarecrows, we proudly present to you this selection of caramel-apple-scented readables. R.W.W. Greene shows what happens when things change in a surprisingly relatable science-fiction tale, while Tushar Jain tells the story of a guy who literally has no boundaries. Poet Alex Ledford plays clever word games, and Maureen Daniels is bringin’ the fantastic imagery in verse. Plus radioactive feline cover art from Jon Snoek.
