Something Wicked #11 (July 2011)

Something Wicked Magazine July 2011 (Issue #11).

12-Month  Subscriptions available through Weightless Books.

We start the July Issue with “The Silver City and The Green Place”, by Abi Godsell, which tells the tale of a breakthrough scientific experiment in artificial intelligence. Next up is “Unstitched Love” by Michael Bailey, which is all about a little girl making a teddy bear for her rather annoying sister, needless to say things don’t quite turn out as planned.

“Sky Painter”, by Michael John Grist is an epic fable about a fallen king and the love he left behind, and we close of the issue with a virtual reality noir murder mystery entitled “Alpha & Omega” by Paul Marlowe.

Our feature interview for this month is with author of The Mall, SL Grey, who is actually the pseudonym of Louis Greenberg and Sarah Lotz (remember Sarah? She won our debut issue Short Story Competition).

And don’t forget the non-fiction, we have Writers Cornered interviews with all four of our authors, an article on the feasibility of true AI and a wacky piece on psychotic toys and why we love them.

And that’s our issue, we hope you enjoy it, and if you do, take out a subscription, tell your friends, follow us on twitter (@Somethin_Wicked), “Like” us on Facebook, and buy a subscription for everyone you know.

Something Wicked #12 (August2011)

Something Wicked Magazine August 2011 (Issue #12).

12-Month  Subscriptions available through Weightless Books.

Well here we are, another month and another issue, our second, fully-digital online issue.

We have some awesome fiction for you in the August Issue, starting off with a trip to a courtroom for a very interesting trial in “The Devil’s Advocate” by Ivor W. Hartmann. This is followed with a story about a hack writer whose story ideas come back to haunt him in “Happiest Amongst Mortals” by Glen Damien Campbell.

We then visit with a man struggling to come to terms with the loneliness of his life only to be offered the kind of company he wasn’t expecting in Brian Kirk’s “No Longer Alone”. And we close off the issue with a whopping great novelette by M. Scott Carter about “The Bayside Incident”, which tells the story of the small town of Bayside where, for some reason, the murders have started again.

 

Our feature interview for this month is with Arthur C Clarke Award winner, Lauren Beukes. I spoke to Lauren a week before she won the award in an interview for Escape Pod, so this time round I wanted to know more about what it felt like to be the Clarke winner, and if she felt any pressure carrying the genre-fiction flag for South African writers.

Well that’s our issue, plus the usual assortment of non-fiction and Writers Cornered pieces. We hope you enjoy it, feel free to comment on any and all of the stories on the site, and if you get a chance go ahead and rate us, or write a review.

We hope you enjoy it, and if you do, take out a subscription, tell your friends, follow us on twitter (@Somethin_Wicked), “Like” us on Facebook, and buy a subscription for everyone you know.

Something Wicked #13 (September2011)

Something Wicked Magazine September 2011 (Issue #13).

12-Month  Subscriptions available through Weightless Books.

Time to get your teeth into our September issue of Something Wicked. I’m really excited about this one; we have some awesome stories for you this month. All four of this issue’s stories are never-before-published original fiction.

Starting off the batch is “Forge of The Soul” by Jason Kahn, which takes us to Doylestown, Pennsylvania, a small town about to be struck by fear and paranoia last seen around 40 years earlier, in another small town called Salem.

Next up we have another piece from Something Wicked alumni, Paul Marlowe, entitled “Cotton Avicenna B iv” which places us in the dingy back alleys of London one Victorian night, and features the founder of The Etheric Explorer’s club, Rafe Maddox.

Scott Brendel’s “Groundswell of Love” is about a rather unfortunate event, that, coupled with a momentary lapse of concentration, results in a pretty bleak (but surprisingly funny) outcome.

And to close off our issue we have a beautiful piece by Damien Filer about a girl whose somewhat ill brother requires a life-changing favour from her, in “Herman’s Bad Seed”.

Our Feature Interview for September is with Diane Awerbuck, award-winning author of Gardening At Night and Cabin Fever.

And that, along with our usual Writers Cornered interviews and the non-fiction pieces for this month, is our issue.

As usual, if you just can’t wait to sink in to Issue 13 you can download your copy right now for only $1.66 (about R12) by getting a subscription right here. Our subscription PDF’s are printable too.

Thanks for reading, and remember – if you’re fan, please consider getting a subscription for yourself or a friend, or simply tell everyone you know about us, we really need and truly appreciate your support.

Remember you can follow us on Twitter @Somethin_Wicked for some daily mindless garbage interspersed with profound glimpses into the inner workings of my brain.

And we close of this issue on the 25th of October with a reprint by Davin Ireland entitled “Engaging the Idrl” and is about a group of soldiers securing a foreign planet.

12-Month  Subscriptions available through Weightless Books.

the Nov issue; our first story this month comes from Lynne Jamneck and it’s a journey into “darkest Africa” at the turn of the last century, where a small group of adventurers go in search of answers in “Into The Black Abyss”.

Next up is “Scission” which is about an epic battle between good and evil by Domenico Pisanti as both forces meet for a showdown… over lunch.

Our third story for the month is “Mindflow” by Cedar Sanderson, in which a generation ship carries its crew in search of a habitable planet, and we close of the issue with a story of possession and exorcism in “What is Evil, What is Not” by Sylvia Hiven.

As I mentioned, our feature interview this month is with the baddest-ass Mexi-Can ever, Mr. Danny Trejo.

Our book review this month is a year-end review of some of our story-editor, Vianne Venter’s, favourite reads for the year with particular focus on Justin Cronin’s The Passage and Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion.
