Over the past year and a half or so, I have been watching the efforts of fellow blogger Shaun Duke (of World in a Satin Bag) as he took on an ambitious project: to start a new magazine. Well, his efforts–and those of his fellow editor, Niyousha Bastani–have finally paid off as they have released their first issue.
Here is their description of the magazine:
Survival By Storytelling Magazine is dedicated to publishing fiction, poetry, and non-fiction by young authors. Included in this volume are twelve short stories, seven poems, and one article, all by authors under the age of twenty-five. In addition, authors Paul Genesse (The Golden Cord and The Dragon Hunters) and T. M. Hunter (Heroes Die Young) have contributed two articles on the publishing industry and writing.
From vampires struggling with identity to guilty lovers trying to raise the dead to humorous and dark tales of life, the first issue of Survival By Storytelling is sure to tingle the senses and remind us all that age has nothing to do with a good story!
In the interests of doing new things and supporting a fellow blogger, I have requested an electronic copy of the magazine. Expect a review in the upcoming weeks.
