Coming next week, we’re introducing a new type of format for our journal: writer’s showcases. For many of the past issues, we’ve set a theme and dictated that authors submit work under that theme. We’ll resume this process in a few months, but for our next release we’re only focusing on one writer.

Fiddleblack #9 features 3:AM Press editor/HarperCollins author (and quotable Bret Easton Ellis reminiscer) Christiana Spens. We’re quite proud of having the chance to showcase Christiana. Her issue includes excerpts from several unpublished novels, as well as poetry from a short collection that Fiddleblack editors oversaw extensively throughout last year.
