It’s here.

A bit later than expected but Issue 4 is finally out of the printer and ready for distribution.

As you might now, this issue marks the first year of our magazine.

We want to thank all of you for the warm welcome you gave us and for the great feedback we’ve received in the last 12 months.

We are also happy to see that our community keeps growing every day. We will continue to make our best so that Surreal Magazine remains your favorite. We have some great material on our editor’s desk both in the fiction (expect to see more big names soon) and the non-fiction departments.

Speaking non-fiction, we don’t want to pass the opportunity to congratulate our collaborator Shannon Riley for winning First Place in the Non Fiction category of the Preditors & Editors Poll. It certainly is a delight to have her among us and you can expect to read more from her in upcoming issues.

Our latest issue brings us great fiction by authors such as Erin MacKay, Rinda Elliott, Jason Sizemore and more. In non-fiction, we feature an interview with English horror writer Graham Masterton, an article on real life zombies in Haiti and a look at Old Spye Road, an actual location in New Jersey with a haunted history. Our editor Jason D’Aprile rounds up the best horror videogames out there and collaborator Alasdair Stuart takes a look at the boom of horror in the world of graphic novels.

Issue 4 is particularly special to us for it marks the debut of the graphic story Trapped, a four-part tale based on a story by Nicholas Tyler and with amazing illustrations by Donald Jackson.

We hope you will enjoy this new venture and would love to hear your thoughts. You can find a minisite for Trapped, with information about the story, the characters and a trailer, at Surreal Interactive.

Meanwhile we remain busy sorting out the final details of our first anthology Shadow Regions. You can also find a minisite with plenty information at Surreal Interactive.

Thanks again for being a part of our success.

Get Surreal!
