But the brothers were always murderers, as was their father (the titular Ten-Century Man), as is the man who saves them from the gallows. We are all potential killers." About the Author: Mike Meginnis is the author of Fat Man and Little Boy (Black Balloon Publishing, 2014). His writing is published or forthcoming in Best American Short Stories 2012, Unstuck, Hobart, Hayden’s Ferry Review, The Collagist, The Lifted Brow, and many others. He operates Uncanny Valley Press with his wife, Tracy Rae Bowling. About the Guest Editor: Some people say we’re living in a golden age of independent literature, and what with Two Dollar Radio, Dzanc, Short Flight/Long Drive, Future Tense, Black Balloon, Civil Coping Mechanisms, Broken River Books, and countless other presses regularly releasing excellent books, it’s hard to argue the point. Despite the increased popularity and marketplace visibility of indie books, literary journals have not fared as well. A few are thriving, but many are closing or migrating to digital-only formats. Even fewer pay for fiction and poetry. The aim of Lazy Fascist Review is to prove that literary journals can still be successful and sustainable, while paying for short fiction and reaching readers. We model ourselves after the great craft breweries—if you ask for our influences, we’ll name Gigantic and Stone in the same breath as Grove Press—for their dedication to creating an excellent product, their willingness to experiment, their unique voices and visual aesthetics, and their commitment to bringing people together. In every issue of Lazy Fascist Review, you’ll find recommended beer pairings for each short story and poem, along with beer reviews, book reviews, interviews, and more.
