First Flytrap Review
Previous Entry :: Next Entry

I have before me the January issue of A Certain Magazine, which should be landing on newsstands any minute now, and which includes the first formal review of issue #1 of Flytrap, written by Nick Gevers. The relevant portion follows:

The field of the high-quality small fiction zine, a phenomenon best exemplified by such enticing oddities as Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet, welcomes a new player, in the form of Flytrap, a twice-yearly publication edited by Heather Shaw and Locus's own Tim Pratt. Issue One is auspicious: highlights, all well-written and succinct, include "Fishing, I Go Among Them", Greg van Eekhout's meditation on the psychology of executioners; "Like Cherries in the Dark", a marital fable by Jay Lake; Michael J. Jasper's "Never, Incorporated", a sly depiction of a demon hoist with his own petard; and "Scrapbook for an Epidemic" by Barth Anderson, in which a plague of aphasia descends on magazine publishing. Perish the thought.


So why don't you go order one? We're running low on copies, actually, having given a bunch to a small distributor (Last Gasp, if you're curious; or, you know, if you're a buyer for bookstores -- Flytrap will be in the Last Gasp line-up starting next year) and a few others directly to bookstores. We're holding a handful of copies to take to Wiscon next year, so that issue #2 won't be lonely when it premieres. So we're down to, oh, about a dozen copies for sale directly. You can get them from Clarkesworld Books, too, though.
