Air in the Paragraph Line, A Literary Journal of outsider and absurdist fiction, announces their new issue - #12 - themed "weird, paranoid, insane."

Paragraph Line Books editor Jon Konrath has announced issue #12 of literary journal Air in the Paragraph Line (ISBN 978-0-6151-6314-7, 240 pages, $14.95).

The theme for the new issue of the journal of absurdist and outsider fiction is "weird, paranoid, insane", and includes 23 stories by 15 writers, including Grant Bailie, Keith Buckley, Tony Byrer, Joshua Citrak, Kurt Eisenlohr, Rebel Star Hobson, Stephen Huffman, Jon Konrath, R. Lee, Erin O'Brien, John Sheppard, Joseph Suglia, Todd Taylor, and Richard K. Weems, plus art from Matthew Pazzol.

"I created Air in the Paragraph Line to offer an excellent collection of out-of-the-ordinary writing that fit my tastes and didn't have a market," says Konrath. "Most literary journals are associated with universities, writing programs, contests, or major publishers. I wanted something without those agendas and their required filler, that would be enjoyable to read from cover to cover."
