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.
