Overview

Fireside is a fiction and comics magazine focused on good storytelling, regardless of genre. Issue Two opens with Kat Howard’s "The Heart of the Story", a lush exploration of a place where tales may well be born. Next is Jake Kerr’s "Perspective", a near-future story in which we meet a reclusive, heartbroken father who doesn’t understand his son’s need to cover a city in graffiti. Next is our comic, "An Honest Mistake", written by Brian White, drawn by Steve Walker, and lettered by Frank Cvetkovic. It looks at what could happen at the end of the world when everyone has watched too many end-of-the-world movies. Following that is a horror story, Damien Walters Grintalis’ "Scarred", about a young woman trying to suppress a dark urge that she once indulged. And we close with "Rhapsody in Blue Shift", a supernatural science-fiction story by Stephen Blackmoore, who is quite afraid this optimistic tale will ruin his street cred as a bloody-nosed pulp writer. And of course, there’s the incredible artwork by Galen Dara, who did the cover based on Kat’s story, as well as the interior illustrations with the other stories.

Meet the Author

Stephen Blackmoore is a writer of short stories, novels, and really pompous, pretentious essays. His latest book, the paranormal noir City of the Lost, is out through DAW books. You can catch his mad ramblings at stephenblackmoore.com or his writings about true crime in Los Angeles at L.A. Noir. Contrary to what you may have heard he does not have rabies. Anymore.

Galen Dara is an illustrator who has worked with Edge Publishing, Dagan Books, Apex, Scapezine, Tales to Terrify, Peculiar Pages, Sunstone, and the LovecraftZine. She is on the staff of BookLifeNow, blogs for the Inkpunks, and writes the Art Nerd column at the Functional Nerds. When Galen is not working on a project you can find her on the edge of the Sonoran Desert, climbing mountains or hanging out with a loving assortment of human and animal companions.

Damien Walters Grintalis lives in Maryland with her husband, two former shelter cats, and two rescued pit bulls. She is an Associate Editor of Electric Velocipede, a staff writer with BooklifeNow, and her debut novel, Ink, will be released in December 2012 by Samhain Horror.

Kat Howard's short fiction has appeared in a variety of places, including the anthology Stories, edited by Neil Gaiman and Al Sarrantonio, Lightspeed, and Subterranean. She is also the content editor for Fantasy-Matters.com. She writes with a fencing foil by her desk and lives in Minnesota.

Jake Kerr began writing short fiction in 2010 after fifteen years as a music industry columnist and journalist. In 2011, Lightspeed published his debut story, The Old Equations, in its July issue. The story went on to be finalist for best novelette Nebula Award and the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award. A graduate of Kenyon College with degrees in English and Psychology, Kerr studied under writer-in-residence Ursula K. Le Guin and Peruvian playwright Alonso Alegria. He is currently working on his first novel. Kerr lives in Dallas, Texas.

Steve Walker is a freelance comics artist having published with companies such as Image Comics, Random House Books — most notably the first two volumes in the graphic novel series The Sons of Liberty — and the upcoming The Battle of Blood And Ink, for Tor Books.
