Announcing Shock Totem #5...

Post by Kenwood on Sat Jun 16, 2012 2:29 am

Ripped from our website...

Shock Totem is proud to announce that we will finally be unleashing another great issue of darkly weird fiction!

Our fifth issue was originally scheduled to come out in January, but for reasons which you can read here we made the hard choice to delay it until July. And now with July nearly upon us, that wait, thankfully, is over.

For those who have yet to see it, here is the cover for issue #5:


[ final cover will have no border and more text ]

Another brilliant piece of work from Mikio Murakami, who has done all our magazine artwork since issue #3.

Here is the official Table of Contents:

* Taking Root, by Mercedes M. Yardley (Editorial)
* In Deepest Silence, by Ari Marmell
* Girl and the Blue Burqa, by D. Thomas Mooers
* Digging in the Dirt: A Conversation with Jack Ketchum, by John Boden
* Hide-and-Seek, by F.J. Bergmann (Poem)
* Eyes of a Stranger, by Nick Contor (Essay)
* Postmortem, by Kurt Newton (5-Part Illustrated Micro-Serial)
* Jimmy Bunny, by Darrell Schweitzer
* Strange Goods and Other Oddities (Reviews)
* Little Knife Houses, by Jaelithe Ingold (2011 Shock Totem Flash Fiction Contest Winner)
* Canon, by Anaea Lay
* Bloodstains & Blue Suede Shoes, Part 3, by John Boden and Simon Marshall-Jones (Article)
* The Catch, by Joe Mirabello
* Three Strikes, by Mekenzie Larsen
* To ‘Bie or Not to ‘Bie, by Sean Eads
* Howling Through the Keyhole (Author Notes)

We're really pleased with how this issue turned out. It's unlike any of our previous issues, which were themselves unlike previous issues, yet as always it is still clearly Shock Totem. We think you'll enjoy it.

Look for it next month, in print and digital formats. And if you want to get it out of the way now, you can preorder the issue here.

As always, thank you for your continued support! Def

I've been mad busy in the day job, so not much time for writing or the Internet. This real life stuff just gets in the way sometimes :-)

I was looking through the "Shop" link on the website today to see when Issue 5 was coming out. I just want to say that, looking at all the issues and books you've put out, you all do a really nice job in terms of the presentation of your publications. It seems like lots of horror magazines and books have rather amateurish covers or designs. All your publications really look fantastic. Of course, the content is great as well! But it's clear you all take the look of your publications very seriously.

Love the cover of Issue 5. Looking forward to reading what's inside.

Yeah, we all want them as wall art. And we'll have them available as prints at some point. Some of the back art, too, like issue #3 and #4. =)

Thanks, Andrew! Def
