A good issue, as good as any so far. In a field redolent with pastiche, it is nice to see an editor take a chance on content. With this issue, Innsmouth Magazine self-acknowledgedly moves from "Lovecraftian" fiction into weird fiction, as clearly evidenced by the dreamlike "The Drowned Ballet" by Kirsten Alene. Still, it does not leave its roots behind, as the almost too cute "The Boston Look" demonstrates. Between the two non-opposed ends of this spectrum of fiction lie some interesting stories and a lot of ground to be covered, so I'm looking forward to seeing what comes next.
My favorite piece from this issue is easily "Dinner at Majak's" by Nghi Vo, in which Lovecraft is served up the Top Chef and topped off with a dash of Bloch. Chilling fun.
