And here’s the cover:

The author is a young and up-and-comer named…me Got tired of digging and digging for cover art every three months and decided to just make some. It’s called
“Dealing” and it’s an analog collage. Hope you don’t hate it!

As for the contest. Nobody won! I’m going to stop doing themed contests; I get a lot of submissions that way, but many of them aren’t what we’re looking for. I blame myself for shitty themes. So, for this issue, I’m splitting up the $40 in prize money to everyone, so all the contributors will be receiving a crisp (or wrinkled) five dollar bill in their issue. (Or five ones). (Probably not coins though).

Next issue, I’ll have to decide how to do the contest. Maybe best poem and best story in general? Maybe just keep cutting $5 checks? If you’ve got an opinion, don’t hesitate to reply here.

New issue opens on Tuesday! See you then!
