Neon Literary Magazine Issue 48

Rated 4.00/5 based on 1 reviews
This issue of Neon opens with a heroic rescue attempt, and closes with an aquatic monster getting kelp on his chequebook. In between there are doomed interstellar romances, vicious acts of vandalism by young children, a midnight encounter with god at a gas station, and a wealth of creatures who would be quite willing to eat you alive. It is, at times, a surprisingly upbeat read. More

About Neon Books

Welcome to Neon magazine. We publish literary and slipstream short-form writing. We err towards the dark, and like to experiment with language and form. We have a particular taste for the apocalyptic.

Neon is based in the UK, and is published online and in print every quarter. We publish writers from anywhere in the world, and everything we publish is available for free online (although we are very happy when readers donate or buy print copies, as it helps us keep on publishing).

Reviews

John C Adams reviewed on on July 6, 2019

Every time I read a literary magazine I enjoy it very much and promise myself that I will try to do so more often. In particular, I haven't read enough modern poetry since finishing my postgraduate certificate in creative writing. The poetry here was lovely and strengthened my resolution to read more modern literary fiction as well as the mainstream novels and the classics that form the majority of my existing reading material.

I liked the way that a variety of established literary fiction authors and poets were juxtaposed with newer voices. That's always a welcome sign in a well regarded literary fiction magazine because part of what they offer to their readership is the stewardship of emerging talent.
