The Review Review reviews The Conium Review‘s latest issue (yeah, there’s confusing number of “reviews” in that sentence).
In her review, Callie Feyen notes that many stories are “haunting,” and she says “the magazine allows different ways to tell a story.” She goes on to say “Whether the plot is deft, or deliciously lengthy, each story in the review provides remarkable characters, and situations to grapple with. A reader will be entertained and satisfied with the variety of storytelling while the writer will be encouraged and hopefully inspired.” Read the full piece at The Review Review website.
Michele Finn Johnson’s “Lunar Facts” appears in Necessary Fiction. Check it out here. Congrats, Michele!
Amelia Gray’s new book, Gutshot, officially releases today from FSG Originals! Get it online or through your local independent bookseller.
Alissa Nutting, author of Tampa, says the collection is “Exhilarating and violently creative, these stories are an assault on expectation. Gutshot is a rare, new original, and Amelia Gray is her own startling genre. This is a book to be experienced, to be taught and obsessed over, to live as a prized weapon on your bookshelf.”
Lindsay Hunter, author of Ugly Girls notes “Amelia Gray’s writing makes you feel like you’ve been shot out of a cannon. You’re disoriented, stunned, completely overcome . . . but you’re also flying through the air. Get ready. Gutshot is a book of lit matches.”
