The latest issue of the excellent Australian-based literary publication, Torpedo, is out and is packed — as always — with elegantly written ficton from some of the world’s finest emerging writers. The issue was designed by Eirian Chapman and features fiction from Ben Jahn, Kris Allison, Eric Hanson, Obelia Modjeska, Neil Boyack, Peter Orner, Garth Risk Hallberg, Natalie Johnson, Paul Mitchell, Karl Smith, Mark Halloran, Keya Mitra & Ryan Crawford. There is also a bumper 50 page graphic fiction section featuring the likes of Walter Newton, Dylan Horrocks, Paul O’Connell, Tim Molloy and Stephanie von Reiswitz. And it all comes with a beautiful wraparound art deco cover from Jordan Clarke. All that for $25, including one tree planted through Eco-Libris. For those interested, they are looking for great fiction to fill Volume 5 and beyond. Short stories between 1000 and 7000 words and full colour comics. Submissions can be made via the FalconvsMonkey website.
