The Obsession Issue

No. 9, winter 2017

Here you’ll find characters and stories obsessed. Obsessed with love, death, sex, alternate realities, and the ideal Tinder date. Kirsty Logan haunts us with lovelorn figures. David Galef shows us a man who hates so hard, things disappear. Poems by Thom Young and Stuart Dybek explore the torment of solitude and love. In an exclusive sneak-peek, Jeff VanderMeer reveals the process behind his own fixation: a novella-in-progress called The Book Murderer. Merging fiction, nonfiction, poetry, art, and a powerful feature with Lambda Literary, F(r)iction No. 9 collects the best—and weirdest—obsessions out there.
