Fiction, illustration, discussion – interesting weirdness for all the senses. Well, almost.

Spring 2017 Issue

SCHLOCKCOVER-AprilMay

Cover art by Erika Zammit

Dear readers,

The long-awaited return of the new, reinvigorated Schlocktopus is finally upon us — and what better way to welcome it than with a fresh Spring edition, incorporating notions of love and death — while living up to the universal maxim, “needs more dragons and shit though”.

Put together by a photograph of the Gullfoss waterfall, this issue aims to be short and sweet, ushering in a new era for Schlock under a new team. We’re excited to announce that the new Schlock will see the return of downloadable e-book versions of upcoming issues, as well as open up for submissions for essays and other forms non-fiction.

We hope this diverse issue, including stories by Mehi Loveski and Walter G. Esselman, a set of photographs by Fabrice B. Poussin, and a darker group of poems by James G. Piatt, inspires you as much as it did us. By an odd twist of luck, we were also fortunate enough to get a hold of this issue’s stunning cover, snapped by Erika Zammit as part of a series shot in dreamy Iceland.
