Recent Issues:

This year (2014) we had the pleasure of working with Time magazine book critic and New York Times bestselling author Lev Grossman, who selected ten stories for a collection he describes as: “frightening, funny, sexy, restless, strange, and frequently melancholy…” A giant falls out of the sky, a mother takes her son on an African safari, a soldier departing for war can’t stop buying things, and a single father tracks down a talking bear at the burger joint down the street. It’s all here, and it’s all fantastic.
