I’ve been remiss in updating when a new Alphanumeric goes live. You may recall, there was some free content from the Non-Binary Review Issue #12: Words of Edgar Allan Poe promised, and this is where it is at! Alphanumeric is the sister-site/brother companion to Issue #12, and I think it gives a great sample of what you can expect from the full issue, which can be bought at Zoetic Press’s store for $1.99 in Kindle, Pdf, and ePub formats.
- “The Ravening” by Meadhbh Hamrick, which gives the choose your adventure/RPG narrative mode the Poe treatment.
- “My Mother’s People” by Samantha Stiers is a very poignant non-fiction essay about family, illness, and finding solace in the imagination after discovering Poe.
- “Madmen of a Harmless Nature” by Robert Perret (edited) reunites us with our Decadent Dupin and goes on an occultism romp.
- “The Imp of the Perverse” by Chris Bullard is a poem that further examines contemporary examples of how the Imp still rides us all.
