76 – The Stolen Child by Gavin Bradley


A poem for May. Alex Ford narrates.


Author Gavin Bradley is an Irish writer from Belfast who works in happy obscurity in Edmonton, Alberta. His poetry has been selected for a ‘Hennessy New Irish Writing Award’ by The Irish Times, and his work can be found in Glass Buffalo, The Open Ear, and The Caterpillar literary magazines, as well as various fantastical anthologies, such as Frozen Fairy Tales, Ignis Fatuus, Tesseracts 21: Nevertheless, and the upcoming Fantastic Trains.

When narrator Alex Ford isn’t rocking around the nation in her band, Ford Theatre Reunion, she’s holed up in her guest room following a different passion: recording audio books and editing manuscripts. An avid reader and writer, she delights in helping people bring their creativity to life. You can check out her exploits, mystery bruises, and a most handsome cat on facebook or instagram.

Special Submission Session for WW2

pvtSnafuBecause you asked, we will be having a special fiction and graphics submission session for the World War II era — from the rise of Nazi Germany to troop homecoming — during the month of June. We will read previously rejected manuscripts during this session. Any manuscripts not “in era” will be automatically rejected without a read.

The stories from this era which have previously passed through the mailroom have a notably different vibe from the others. We thought it best to give them their own issue.

Please read the guidelines before sending manuscripts.
