Beatdom #13: Open for Submissions

It’s that time again. Time to get back to work on another issue of Beatdom. As usual, we have a theme, and this time it’s DRINKING. How did it take so long to get to here, you might well ask.

We are therefore looking for essays, interviews, poems, short stories, and artwork that...

The Wild, Weird, Wacked, Warped, Whimsical Wonder of Waylon Bacon!

The creation is almost done. He makes a few adjustments to his equipment, then fiddles with some gadgets. The air is static and the storm rages. Sparks fly and the energy is frightening. Ygor hides in the shadows, watching him and giggling maniacally at what is about to be set loose upon the unsuspecting world. Sweat rolls down his forehead, what appears to be a grimace is suddenly changed to a smile as the corners of his mouth turn,...
