“Everything is Super” | SCD: Spring 2021 [Comic]

STRANGE CITY DIGEST

Super thrilled to showcase “Everything Is Super” written and illustrated by Captain Rottsteak (IG: @rottsteak) I just loved the punk rock ethos of this series style and verve. This is a rare example of decontstructionism done right in comics. Be sure to check out the full preview and interview with the creator in the latest issue of SCD available via this link, or just click the ‘purchase SCD’ tab on the menu bar at the top of the page!

“The Liminal Lure” Fiction by Titus Green

The Chamber Magazine

I have been trying to get help via the chatbot function of a certain airline. It is a very straightforward request, requiring minimum human effort and research to fulfil. After entering my name, I was told to ‘enter a valid name’. After getting my nominal validity rejected for a second time, the only option was to return to the main menu where the virtual assistant asked me what I wanted. Information, I typed. ‘Enter your name’, it commanded and so again I did just that. Then it told me to ‘enter a valid name’ again! If Kafka, Phillip K Dick, Edgar Allen Poe, or Harlan Ellison were alive they would have enough inspiration from the shenanigans of artificial non-intelligence to write ten thousand more novels each. Does anybody have the number of a time-travel agent offering one-way tickets back to 1980? Please PM if you do!

So went my gut-angry…

Book Review – Gods of the Dark Web by Lucas Mangum — MORGAN K TANNER, Writer of Horror

I’d had this book on my wish list on a certain website for quite a while. And then Christmas came along and I got a shiny book-shaped present that contained this gory specimen. Things were looking up. The story jumps straight into the action and then never really lets up. OK, there are sections when […]

3664. Greville Road (12) — Natural adventures

One of the notable things about Stewy is that he skulks around, a little bit like the fox depicted in this stencil, without fanfare or pomp and with great modesty leaves us with some beautiful and lasting art to enjoy. Stewy selects his spots very carefully and few if any get tagged or over-painted because […]

The Chamber published Mr. Carr’s story “Catacombs of the Doomed” on April 23.


Tell us something about your life.

I was born in impoverished conditions in Cincinnati, Ohio and joined the military for seven years, three in the Army, four in the Navy, right out of high school. During my stint in the Army I was a military journalist. After the military I completed my university degree in English/Theater and afterward worked in healthcare management while writing plays that were produced in several U.S. States. After owning my own theatrical production company, I was able to retire early and took up writing short stories in June 2016. I’ve had 500 stories – new and reprints – published since then.

What is your greatest accomplishment as a writer so far?

The entire process of writing and then submitting a short story to a publication is grueling and sometimes brutal, and I’ve…

“The Year Unknown” Fiction by Tim Goldstone

The Chamber Magazine

There was civil war here once, although official records are careful not to give it that name. If you look through the government-backed newspapers of the time you will find the language they preferred: subversives, agitators, extremists, disturbances, and then: Necessary Measures.

Location: England, the southern seaboard.

You should still stay out of this city.

Post civil-war life. Late November. Pre storm.

Jake stepped out of the warm fug created by the single portable gas heater in Eddie’s Café, its silver-coloured metal guard scorched brown, and down the three breeze blocks acting as steps, into the foul night. He’d felt better sitting up at the counter in Eddie’s, where Tajana had made his fried-egg sandwich just how he liked. Outside again, the filthy, wet night struck him hard in the face. A storm had been building for days, but this was not it.

Jake’s boots were provided by the flour…
