The Conium Review: Vol. 5 collector’s edition is coming soon! Here’s a sneak peak at some of this year’s design. This is a mock-up of the micro-chap for “Ruby Goes In,” by Kate Gies. This flash fiction was one of our 2016 Innovative Short Fiction Contest finalists. This little booklet is 3.5-inches by 3 inches. The cover is recycled craft paper, the interior leaf is 24-lb parchment paper, and the inner pages are 24-lb bright white natural linen paper. This is one of several individual stories that will be presented inside the collector’s edition.
The Conium Review: Vol. 5 paperback edition officially launched on December 15th. The Vol. 5 collector’s edition is slated for December 30th.
This year’s box will actually be more box-ish than previous years (rather than resembling a wooden book). It’s roughly a 3.5-inch cube (not quite a cube — one side is around 4 inches — but close enough). It’s fitted with a metal latch and hinges. This box will be hand-stamped with the title, ISBN, and price.
Over the next few days, will show other pieces of the collector’s edition, leading up to its reveal and sale on December 30th. Stay tuned!

The Conium Review: Vol. 5 is slated for release on December 15th. Here’s a mock-up of the new issue’s cover. Like the last couple issues, the front is rather minimal while a larger image wraps around the back. Any guesses what those scraggly lines are? Answer: broken chain-link fence. Pre-orders for The Conium Review: Vol. 5 will go on sale this weekend!
