Praise and critiques:

I tend to read more novels than I do short fiction, but I am glad that I delved into this wonderful online magazine. At you can’t beat the cost at free! Hexagon Issue #3 features five wonderful short stories, each a delight to read, and thematically all over the place, but the stories share one thing in common – rich use of metaphor. You can tell that the editor puts a lot of attention into how the stories in the collection work together to achieve a mood. From the casting off of traditions to romantic sentimentality tinged with fear, this magazine spreads the gambit of emotions. One of the stories is even told as a recipe, and done quite cleverly. A thoroughly enjoyable read, and you can download the magazine for free at their website!


Fans of speculative short stories will love this free online magazine.


Rating: 4 out of 5.

4 of 5, a great collection of new speculative fiction.
