Succour fantasies

succourissue9

Coming to a bookstore near you (and co-edited by 3:AM‘s Max Dunbar):

Succour 9 is an astonishing collection of new work from some of today’s most exciting writers and artists, who present diverse interpretations of the theme, Fantasies.

The issue features: fiction by Royal Alvis, Anthony Banks, Kate Lermitte Campbell, Jonathan Hamnett, Nick Hunt, Laura Joyce, Joel Lane, Gregory Norminton and Ray Robinson; poetry by Arlene Ang, Ben Brooks, Orfhlaith Foyle, Joshua Jones, Rob A. Mackenzie and Robert Selby; artwork by Daniel Arsham and Eline McGeorge.

The launches for this are:

London – The Betsey Trotwood, Clerkenwell, Thursday July 30

Manchester – The Briton’s Protection, Castlefield, Friday July 31

More details on these to follow.

You can also submit to issue 10, which is going to be called ‘The Banal’:

For this issue, we’re interested in work that takes the everyday or the commonplace as its subject, considers the nature of boredom, or indeed that questions what we think of as banal. You may also like to consider The Banal as a counterpart to Fantasies (the S/S 2009 issue), in that the fantastical tends to emerge from, or be contained within, the banal.
