Vol. 1, No. 1: Winter 2021

Issue Details

As the industrial era drains away and new worlds take its place, the future proves to be a strange and multifarious place: home to people as different as a young lover from just outside town, and a vagabond entomologist who’s walked across a continent; a devotee of a war divinity held in prison, and a devotee of a love divinity traveling with the circus; a dangerously officious manager, and a grudge-toting disgruntled worker; a wise grandmother at home, and a senior couple forced into squatting far from home. New stories, new worlds, new beginnings: come along for the journey in this first issue of New Maps.
