Corium Debuts at #1

Corium Magazine, a new journal edited by the wonderful Lauren Becker, There's Something Wrong with Sven author Greg Gerke, and Heather Fowler (blog address unfortunately not available), released its debut issue today through a long series of tubes Republican Senator from Alaska Ted Stevens once referred to as "The Internet."

Many wonderful writers adorn the halls of this first issue, including the very short fiction of my former professor, fiction editor for elimae and author of a beautiful book called Pretty, Kim Chinquee, Wigleaf editor Scott Garson, Andrea Kneeland, Kathy Fish, Sheldon Compton, Julie Babcock, Ryan Ridge, Beth Thomas, Laura Ellen Scott, Christina Murphy and a story of mine called "Unbreakable" (Big thanks, Greg, Lauren and Heather...)...

Also, walk a little further through halls to find short fiction from Stephen Elliott, Donna D. Vitucci, Sean Lovelace, Alec Niedenthal and Adam Moorad. Still further, poetry from Shaindel Beers, Corey Mesler, Sam Rasnake, Night Train editor Rusty Barnes and Cami Park. The artwork is spectacular, with works from James Roninger, Ernest Williamson III and Christopher Woods. Come on in. There’s plenty of refreshments and cookies over there on the table by the hat rack…

thanks for your comment on my blog--funny because I'd just finished up with Mr. G--what a terrific piece. But also, Corium as a whole, a darkness runs through it, eh

I really liked your contribution, Eric--especially the line about people questioning the presence of the mirror and how long it's been there.

Lauren Becker said...

thanks for the nice words, eric, both here and at corium. well, the ones at corium were not so much nice as amazing and, yeah, dark, as LES says. it's that evocative thing, i guess. anyway, i'm glad you're a part of it!
