Black Denim Lit #3: [Apr, 2014]

ABOUT BlackDenimLit Magazine

BlackDenimLit Magazine
We're calling writers for literary fiction short stories and flash fiction submissions at our journal ... genre fiction is OK, too.



Black Denim Lit is a monthly journal of fiction available on the web and on all eReaders. The April, 2014 issue edited by Christopher T. Garry features seven new authors and their short stories. All the authors expand significantly on their print work, creating narratives that are variously dark, cynical, inspiring, disturbing, longing or irreverent.

Stories include: •Our Immortal Souls by Phil Richardson (A couple work out the details of how to comply with the negative population growth policies.) •Tailing the Blond Satan by Oscar Windsor-Smith (Officer Winston Morgan, a strapping broad-shouldered guy in a white sweatshirt and blue jeans works a cold case that no one else will touch.) •Into Open Hands by Steven Crandell (A widower considers his path, the complexity of societal expectation and precept when there is nothing left.) Plus, •A Lesson from the Road by Bob Carlton •Maps and Miracles by Michael Fontana •Best Baby by Craig Temple •Drill & Kill by Chad Greene.

Don't miss the chance to see what Wikipedia is like 300 years in the future. See a principal that has...something...on...her neck.

Why "Black Denim"...? In work clothes, black denim is a less pretentious than khaki and more understated than blue jeans. This typifies the tone of writing style that appeals to us: grounded, approachable and unassuming. Don't get us wrong--bring the grit, complexity, humor and strength. We look at a lot of genre work after all. But our tastes consider that "lasting artistic merit" can emerge from almost anywhere.
