PostSubject: Announcing Shock Totem #5...   Sat Jun 16, 2012 1:29 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!

I really wish more people here would consider buying these. I own them all, and have loved them all (my favorite still being the first one).

I wonder if this could be talked up better in another section of the board, as a discussion more than a promo.

I have a feeling a lot of people don't even venture this far down in the forum. This is the slums. Haha. But any further discussion is okay by me. Thanks, Kurt! =)

Maybe pimp the fact that Amazon Prime members can read it for free....I was surprised by that fact, and happy for it.

There is that, yeah. Apparently we suck at promoting. Haha. But yeah, you can read any of our books for free if you have Amazon Prime. You get one book a month.

The Wicked, however, is waaaaaay better in print. You can't get the retro feel on a digital reader, unfortunately.
