The Zodiac Review

The Zodiac Review
The Zodiac Review is a quarterly literary magazine for discerning readers and writers of fine short fiction. Here you will find stories of flash fiction and short story length, each selected quarterly from submissions that cross the old lines separating literary fiction from genre fiction. And here you will find prose poetry, another form of literature that crosses boundaries to tell its stories. Among the many themes and sub-themes you may find in stories here are fate vs. free will, cosmic irony, and some of the many fascinating ways in which astrology is understood by the characters who populate the stories…subjects that expose the inscrutability of the universe and the poignancy of the human condition.

Anobium

Anobium
Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Arthropoda Class: Insecta Order: Coleoptera Infraorder: Bostrichiformia Superfamily: Bostrichoidea Family: Anobiidae Subfamily: Anobiinae Genus: Anobium (?Bookworm,? in other words.) Anobium is literature; a collusion of molecules, fused into a conceptual (w)hole. As a conceptual entity, Anobium is the headbirth of Benjamin van Loon and ?Mary J. Levine,? who doesn?t exist. Anobium is Chicago-based, independent publisher who specializes in the compilation and assemblage of strange, surreal and insectile literature. Our aim is to produce consciously designed and intelligently written contemporary literature. Those who pronounce auguries about the Death of the Book fail to realize that what is death for some is rebirth for others. We believe technology compliments our interaction with artifactual literature; it does not demolish it. Our relatively ?short? volumes (80-100 pages) and chapbooks will read easily, store safely and wear evenly - as a good book should.

THRUSH Poetry Journal

THRUSH Poetry Journal
Why the name THRUSH? Thrushes are a species of bird, the songs of some considered to be among the most beautiful in the world. We love that and that is how we feel about poems. Why is THRUSH only poetry? We love fiction, and read it often. We feel there are many beautiful journals we admire that offer prose. Our passion is poetry.

Words Apart

Words Apart
The goals of Words Apart are twofold: discussion of real topics that affect us and presentation of art that reflects the complexity of life. We do not want to be hip. We do not want to be elitist. We want to be sincere. And most of all we want the literature we publish to represent single moments in a continuous dialogue, a dialogue that you are also a part of.
