I've just come to the end of my first cycle of commissioning as 3:AM Magazine's fiction editor. I feel privileged to have published wonderful work from writers from Germany to South Africa to the US to the UK, including:
Heads or Tails, by Felicitas Hoppe, translated by Katy Derbyshire
b.willow, by Joseph Spece
Caretaking, by Liam Kruger
Lingo, by Richard Barnett
I'm too sad to tell you about I'm too sad to tell you, by Juliet Jacques
I've also posted excerpts from Dear A. by Inga Machel (trans. Donal McLaughlin), winner of Readux Books' New German Fiction Prize, and La Femme de Gilles (trans. Faith Evans), the rediscovered feminist classic by 20th century Belgian writer, Madeleine Bourdouxhe.
I'm particularly pleased to have published these three stand-out stories for UK National Short Story Week:
Alight at The Next by Eley Williams
Anthology One: Boxes, by Martin MacInnes
The Dinner Party Wars, by Matthew De Abaitua
I'm looking forward to starting 2015 with new work by Sharon Kivland, Livia Franchini, Sophie Collins, Jay Merrill, Matthew Sperling, and Thomas McMullan, with art by Anastasia Kashian, Chiara Ambrosio, and Kerry Brewer. Fiction submissions will reopen early in the new year - keep your eye on the website/Twitter.
