The new issue of Ässä ready


The cover of soon-coming third issue of Ässä, my flash fiction magazine. This issue contains stories by James McGowan, Joe R. Lansdale (two!), Sandra Scoppettone, Patti Abbott, Patrick Shawn Bagley, Paul David Brazill and Greg Schwartz plus Finnish stories by Tapani Bagge (previously unpublished funny story "The Mustache" [sic]), Harri Erkki (five word horror story, with very black comedy and almost pornographic content - try to beat that!) and someone called Mikael Ylinen and myself, with a Joe Novak story which I thought turned out to be very good.

Will be out in a week or two. The title means "ace" and the cover is by unknown.

Cool, Juri. You are a busy fellow.

Frank Loose said...

Juri ... what a line-up. Kudos. I gather this is published in Finnish. Do you do the translations yourself?

Juri said...

Frank: yeah, it's in Finnish. I did all the translations myself this time, earlier I've asked couple of friends of mine to contribute, but it's no big deal actually, when you do something each day.

And I'm very proud of this line-up. Thanks goes to Patti without whom I wouldn't've had some of these stories. The Scoppettone one is a gem, very touching and well-done.
