Thinking Man’s Crumpet #2

Posted by demonik on December 24, 2008

Thanks to Caroline who is keeping us up to date with developments at TTMC enterprises:

I suspect Vaulters might be interested in this though – we have a particularly sexy line-up for issue 2!

Line up for the forthcoming Issue 2.

Submissions for issue two are now closed, although you may submit at any time for consideration in further issues.

The line up is as follows:

The fiction and verse –
BAD INTENTIONS by Anna Stephens.
HALLUCINATION by Roswell Ivory.
2AM by Sharon Washington.
DELICIOUS by Sam Crosby

Non fiction –
Interview with CHARLES BLACK by Caroline Callaghan.

Men’s section –
SKELETON IN THE CLOSET by A. J. Kirby
WE ARE THREE by Tim Jeffreys

While there is the possibility of last minute additions, the above are the definite inclusions to date.

Issue 2 is due out in January 2009, and details of how to obtain a copy will be posted here in the near future.

Cheers,

Coral and Caroline

Some background: TTMC was set up with two basic aims. Having been a member of the Vault of Evil for a while, I was inspired by the members’ various literary projects to create one of my own. However, my purpose was slightly different in that I decided to take submissions from female writers alone, to begin with. Thus my first aim was to provide a relaxed, encouraging atmosphere for women, who were perhaps wondering if writing was for them, to come forward and submit their work in an uncharged, “we’re all girls here” style arena. Ego-wise, I also hoped to be responsible for discovering the next Shirley Jackson or Poppy Z Brite. The other main issue that I have tried to address with this publication is that of “genre”. I do dislike that word. Rigidity by editors and publications over subject matter, and indeed word counts, formatting, style etc ad nauseum, can be intimidating for someone just starting out. By creating a magazine with no boundaries, where literally anything is considered, and may even be submitted by myspace message if so desired, I am hoping to coax out work that might otherwise remain unpublished, either because the author is unsure, or has perhaps been rejected as being “not what we’re looking for” by genre publications. I hope you will enjoy reading this superb collection of multi-genre stories, verse and flash fiction as much as I have! BLOGS coming soon: Should this publication be gender inclusive? Submissions for issue two required. Should submissions for artwork be opened? Should a section for non fiction, reviews, articles and such be included?

On a personal note, I do hope you’ll enjoy reading the top notch stories, verse and flash fiction in this first issue, and will be tempted to look out for number 2 this autumn. This labour of love was inspired by my chums at the Vault of Evil message board, and by Rog Pile, who also kindly donated some of his fantastic artwork to enhance the magazine. The lovely lady contributors have given their utmost to create a cosmopolitan mix of styles and genres. The next issue will include even more quality fiction.

Enjoy. Coral x.
