ESC! Magazine
Volume 9, Number 1
Release Date April 25, 2005

Welcome to the 19th issue of ESC! Magazine.

This issue brings four great new short stories your way. Two from new contributors Marcia Mascolini and Ann Stewart, a tale from the mind of Charles Ries and a new piece from longtime contributor Bob Potocki.

Our poetry section, &, reintroduces the concept of an "issue within an issue." Along with new verse by ESC! regulars Joyce Bradshaw and Guy Qualls, I'm pleased to present the works of G. Scott Hughes, Anthony Liccione and L.B. Sedlacek.

Also within, you'll find Joseph Farley's chapbook of poetry, "SUCKERS" reviewed by Charles Ries.

This month's cover is by Claudio Parentela, an illustrator and cartoonist from Italy who is very active in the underground scene of zines and comics.

By purchasing the Premium Printed Edition or snagging something from the ESC!Mag Gear online store, ESC! Magazine can continue to publish aspiring Writers and Artists for years to come.
