From the very first page, Richard Dent’s Myopia creates a world unlike ours yet eerily similar. I had the pleasure of reading the first issue of what I can confidently say will be a long-running and successful series of graphic novels.

F(r)iction, an imprint of Tethered by Letters, does not disappoint with its sixth issue.  As spectacularly conceived as the writing and artwork which adorns its pages, this little lit mag is fresh and vibrant, and certainly not your traditional literary journal.  Issue six boasts not only a bevy of artfully crafted short fiction and poetry, it hold...
