The Conium Review: Vol. 9
About this issue:
The Conium Review: Vol. 9 contains new fiction from Heather Cripps, Lucy Duggan, Pearl A. Griffin, Kelly Hill, Trista Hurley-Waxali, Kanya Kanchana, Juliana Lamy, Cassidy McCants, Erin Piasecki, Devin Porter, Xenia Taiga, and Miranda Williams. Shrieking mermaids, men in trapped in bottles, and a boy with a glass arm. These pieces personify inanimate objects, delve into epistolary prose, and fragment a narrative across excerpted conversations and text messages. Filled with equal parts humor and melancholy, this collection is a literary delight.
