elcome to the second edition of Fiction Inferno: The Literary Magazine that Burns You Up. In honor of surviving the first 150 submissions, the first 3,000 visits, and the first few shooting pains down my left arm, I'm going to give you, the reader, a special treat! That's right, for a limited time, (just this issue, in fact) Fiction Inferno is going to offer FOUR fabulous fictions! Check 'em out, and I'll see you next quarter....


Endless Love

by Jay Arr Henderson

Ahhhhh, she loves me, she loves me not, she loves me.... Isn't love grand? Until it's over, of course. Because no matter how good it is, all good things must come to their natural end, right? Right? RIGHT?!? One of the most chilling endings I've encountered. My spine still tingles just thinking about it.

Follow Me Down

by Terry Hickman

Like, it's just sooooo hard to be an original virgin, you know? There's the mall, of course, and keeping with the latest hottie boy bands, and being kidnapped by interstellar pervert nerds, and there's just no way this is going to go over with her Daddy. Sigh. Anyway, here's a very charming space adventure with a few unusual twists and a truly memorable heroine.


by Paul Witcover

Every now and then, I encounter a writer with such a strikingly original voice that I just get giddy. Paul Witcover is one of those. His novel Waking Beauty is one of the most interesting books I've seen in years. If you can find it, BUY IT and READ IT. The fact that it is at all difficult to find will form the basis of a lengthy secret tribunal with HarperPrism in the role of Kafka's "K."

The Distance Travelled

by Brett A. Savory

What the hell? Now here's my kind of pulp noir: who's lobbing live pigs through the window of our damned hero's villa on the shores of the Lake of Sorrow? You just have to read this excerpt from Savory's novelette and find out. It's not just hot, it's an INFERNO.
