Re: Vastarien: A Literary Journal Is Open for Submissions



Final cover art by the incomparable Dave Felton for the inaugural issue of Vastarien: A Literary Journal. The mock-cover design itself is not final.

All galley proofs have been approved. We're only waiting on interior art and the creation and (hopefully) successful completion of an associated Kickstarter campaign to cover all costs.

I think I can speak for my Co-Editor-In-Chief, Matt Cardin, when I state that this is going to be something unusually special, filled with in-depth non-fiction essays and new weird fiction, terrific poetry, and fascinating hybrid pieces by some of the best authors out there. I know Vastarien has been long in coming, but it should be well worth the wait. We'll keep you posted.

Some of you might be interested to know -- or might already be aware -- that the publication of this foreword in Vastarien #1 will mark its first appearance in English.

This will also mark the first English appearance of the interview with Ligotti by Wojciech Gunia, which was originally published in a Polish magazine in conjunction with the Polish Teatro (of which Gunia was one of the translators).

Re: Vastarien: A Literary Journal Is Open for Submissions

The final version of Vastarien's table of contents looks amazing. The editors are preparing a real treat for the Ligotti readers.

Re: Vastarien: A Literary Journal Is Open for Submissions

Is it too early to be asking when the journal shall be open for submissions to the next edition? (It probably is. ;) )
