There is so much strife in the world at the moment it’s a relief to lose ourselves in the kind of escape only writing can provide. The latest issue delivers with an eclectic mix of fiction, non-fiction and poetry.

This far-reaching conversation excavates a fascinating life while digging deep into a couple of pertinent questions: what makes a writer and where does the impetus begin?
In non-fiction, Gary Grant cogitates on the queer aspects of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and Kalliope X regular, David Roberts, contemplates Greek Weird Wave Cinema. If divergence is the theme in non-fiction, experimentation defines the fiction selections. New writers Erika Carreon and Daniel Juckes transport us to phantasmal worlds with imagistic pieces that play with linguistic boundaries.
