Grab yourself a copy of the latest Popshot Magazine for poetry, fiction and artwork that will send you spinning into the future and back.
Issue 12 is peppered with poems on the theme of time, including work by Claire Booker, Zelda Chappel, Aki Schilz, Jim Stewart-Evans, Roddy Williams and Barbara Wojtowicz.
Short fiction is mesmerisingly macabre this issue. Try the twists and turns of The Many Deaths of Michael Finch by Ben Whitfield or the chilling And the Glass Cold Against his Face by Thomas Chadwick. I can particularly recommend Christopher Kennerley’s The Schleepen Plan for a morally dubious solution to not enough hours in the day.
Last, but not least, luxuriate in colour and concept as you pause to enjoy the wonderful illustrations by artists such as Glenn Harvey, Tavis Coburn, Nader Sharaf, Frederik Rättzen (above), Ray Oranges (below) and Miranda Meeks.
Edited by Jacob Denno, Popshot is an illustrated literary magazine that lands twice a year on the doormats of people sensible enough to have a subscription. It’s also available at good bookshops across the globe, or online at www.popshotpopshot.com
Submissions of poetry, flash fiction or short stories are accepted on special themes each issue. Previous themes have included journeys, birth, love, power and childhood. Details of the next theme will be up on the website in December.
