Issue 54 of Neon Literary Magazine is full of stories of strange transformations and surreal futures. Readers will be taken to visit the sinister Ministry of Literature, contemplate the lives of gay frogs, ride along on the travels of the Shadow Man, and drop into a world where people can become animals in more ways than one. A selection of short stories and poems are supplemented by a haunting graphic short story by Dante Luiz and H Pueyo. The issue features works by Fiona Jefferson, Cole Brayfield, Jennie E Owen, Isabelle Marie Flynn, Devon Moody, EN Auslender, Beth Booth, Blair Hurley, Lauren Everdell, Dante Luiz & H Pueyo, Bree Wernicke, Rhonda Parrish, Ruth Niemiec, and Su Ryder. Neon is pay-what-you-want to download, and costs just £8.00 for a physical copy. In its perfect-bound format, each issue is around 90 pages and is photo-illustrated in black and white.
