It’s launch day for Souvenirs and Other Stories, by Matt Tompkins! We’re pleased to release this collection of six short fictions, lauded by Beth Gilstrap, author of I Am Barbarella, as “a strange, heartbreaking, and often darkly comical book.” Jen Grow, author of My Life as a Mermaid, also says that Souvenirs is “a compelling universe that normalizes the bizarre.” This funny, absurd, surreal collection is available in select bookstores, and you can get it online using the links below:
Buy it directly from Conium Press.
Buy it on Amazon.
Buy it from Barnes & Noble.
This is also the last day to submit to our “Dis/appearances” theme, guest edited by Matt Tompkins in celebration of his new book.

It’s the ultimate holiday gift for the book lover on your list (or for yourself). These sold out rather quickly last year, so don’t miss your chance to claim one today.
Pre-orders for The Conium Review Volume 3 are on sale through early November or until supplies last. The current pre-order price is $10.00. Retail price will be $12.00 after release. Our last issue sold out early, so be sure to reserve your copy today.
The Conium Review Volume 3 features eight new stories from Olivia Ciacci, Tom Howard, D. V. Klenak, Jan LaPerle, Zach Powers, Christine Texeira, and Meeah Williams. In these strange and surreal stories, you’ll find a company that sells night-in-shining-armor-style happy endings, a boy with a second person trapped inside of him, and more. The pieces include fables, flash fiction, short stories, and novella-length fiction.
