Hexus Journal Issue 1: The New Black
Published by Hexus Journal (2015)
Hexus is a new journal placed somewhere between the boundaries of experimental fiction and art writing, illustration and fine art. whist maintaining a focus firmly on horror – positioning itself somewhere between Hammer Horror schlock and The Shock of the New, it’s aim is to offer a contemporary perspective on a much-maligned genre.
The first issue, The New Black, dwells on (and in) the darkness of dissolution – of body, mind, and spirit. Within its pages you’ll find writing and artwork from an international and highly acclaimed line up, all dealing in their own way with the loss of itself -be it through mental deliquescence, minimalistic bleeding out, the ever-narrowing strictures of power, the price of fame, spectral malevolence, Dadaistic tumbles to the void, or good old-fashioned violence.
