There is just something I can appreciate from such an austre image on the front of a magazine – the kind that draws me in, though I can’t quite say why, and makes it hard to look away. This image on the cover of Brick #94 is a photograph of East Jerusalem street scene by Teju Cole. Though it looks black and white, it is in full color.
It was both the image and the opening editorial lines that drew me to this issue of The Molotov Cocktail: “Issue 5.17 will drag you to Hell.” Okay, I’m game. Self-defined as “A Projectile for Incendiary Flash Fiction,” the publication is produced by Josh Goller.
