Colony Literary Magazine, Issue 2 is now live here: http://www.colony.ie
A literary magazine for those who like the experimental, the unconventional, ‘Colony is published online tri-annually, and a print anthology featuring the best work from the online issues, together with new material, will be published yearly.
Their intention is to publish the highest-quality innovative and unconventional writing – and more – from Ireland and internationally, together with interviews, essays and literary criticism.
They publish a wide range of forms: Ideas / Essays / Literary Criticism, Fiction, Poetry, Spoken Word / Performance Poetry, Sounds, Work in Translation, Interviews, Miscellaneous.’
My story, Cyber Trans, is published in issue 2. In this speculative story I explore a transformed future where people can upgrade their bodies and women are the dominant gender.

I am proud to be among such fine company.
So long and thanks for all the fish.
For anyone interested in a good read check out Northern Ireland’s new literary journal; The Incubator. It publishes fiction, memoir, interviews.
I’m proud to have a Flash-Fiction of mine: Saint Perpetua, included in such a fine publication. Congrats to all involved, particularly Kelly Creighton.
I was very pleased today to receive my first copy of The Penny Dreadful, (Issue Three), a relatively new Irish literary magazine. It’s full of black and twisted humour, which I like. And it doesn’t take itself seriously.
It’s a fine magazine, beautifully printed and bound. It’s credit to all who made it: Editors John Keating and Marc O’Connell and the team at the Dreadful Press.
I’ve only scratched the surface of its contents so far. There’s a radio play by Kevin Barry no less and the great P.J O’Connor offers some fiction. There’s also poetry by Dimitria Xidous among others. And art by Snooks Lee. I look forward to reading it over the next few weeks.
The year’s subscription was very reasonable at €13 for a year, (two issues).
They also accept submissions of poetry and fiction.
Find them at http://thepennydreadful.org.
My collection of short stories, Fallout, has revised cover art.
