The big news this week is the unexpected return of the magazine of strange creature fiction, Allen K’s Inhuman Magazine, which I erroneously assumed to be defunct. I love this little monster zine, and I’m glad to see it return after a three-year absence, with a new issue crammed with fiction from Michael Bishop, Tim Curran, C. J. Henderson, Darrell Schweitzer, Gahan Wilson, and many others. Copies are just $6.99. Check out all the details by clicking on the image above — or click any any of the pics, to see our detailed report on each issue. Go ahead, try it! I’ll wait.

As we’ve mentioned before, all of these magazines are completely dependent on fans and readers to keep them alive. Many are marginal operations for whom a handful of subscriptions may mean the difference between life and death. Why not check one or two out, and try a sample issue? There are magazines here for every budget, from completely free to $7.50/issue. If you find something intriguing, I hope you’ll consider taking a chance on a subscription. I think you’ll find it’s money very well spent.
