"Dark, edgy and inflected with just the right degree of lyricism."
"... an examination of the human spirit, a darkened mirror that reflects the true nature of the struggle, not only for survival, but for civilization.

What people said about this issue:
" In between receiving issues of 'Murky Depths' I always forget quite what the magazine is like. This means that every time I open the packet and pull out a new issue I'm stunned again at the vibrancy of its production. Full colour cover, glossy, high quality paper throughout, a rich medley of artistic styles, the clean and professional layout and that subtle smell of quality. . . .I would say this is the strongest issue yet."Full review - Gareth D Jones (SFcrowsnest)
" The cover looks brilliant. And the interview with Jason Beam was really interesting. Some useful tips in there for new illustrators." - Candra Hope (Murky Depths Forum)
