Publisher’s description: The Conium Review doesn’t rely on preconceived notions of what’s ‘publishable.’ We like atypical subjects and forms. We release an annual print edition and periodic web content. Our small press also publishes a couple books/chapbooks each year. The Conium Review holds yearly flash fiction and short fiction contests; former guest editors and judges include Matt Bell, Lessa Cross-Smith, Ashley Farmer, Lindsay Hunter, Manuel Gonzales, Amelia Gray, and Stephen Graham Jones.
Small Press Reviews calls us “spectacular” and notes “we’re bearing witness to the bizarre, but it’s not just bizarre for the sake of bizarre. It’s a brand of bizarre that offers insight into the human condition.”
Prick of the Spindle says we’re “raising a unique voice. And it is one that’s worth listening to.”
Stone Highway Review notes our journal is “strange and unfamiliar, all while keeping us grounded in a seemingly ‘familiar’ world.”
NewPages.com reviewer, Kirsten McIlvenna, says “The Conium Review boasts a radiant collection of imaginative and intriguing stories that surprise, consume, and enchant the reader.”
