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.
