David Prill
Subterranean Magazine Fall 2009

Quirky is the word that comes to mind when trying to describe David Prill‘s short story Five Dispatches from the Third Word War.This highly amusing and imaginative story reveals the depth of the lie behind the old saying “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me”. As we all know words can cut the deepest but in this fictional world they kill… horrifically.

Simon R. Green

Welcome to the Nightside, the dark seeded underbelly of London. Where sin is sold on every corner and nightmares and fantasies have a way of coming true. Once you stop by you may never want to leave, if you still have the choice. This is the world that Private Investigator John Taylor calls home. John Taylor is a man known for finding things, and this time Nightside’s own gossip magazine “The Unnatural Inquirer” wants John to find an unverified recording of the afterlife.
