Revelation was an independently published literary magazine
preoccupied with the apocalypse.
Revelation offers original writing and artwork of various genres
and techniques from various authors in a traditional magazine format. The one constant holding
together each eclectic issue is the looming threat of annihilation present in each individual work.
Revelation is devoted to publishing
stories that have been inspired by or are somehow connected to any
conception of the end of the world. That doomsday connection may be
tenuous, implied, or overwhelming. Each piece presented in the magazine represents any one of countless genres — drama, comedy, mystery,
romance, horror, speculative fiction, magical realism —
but there is certain to be a relevant and creative apocalyptic element apparent in the piece.
Revelation's premiere issue,
presenting unique and original apocalyptic fiction, debuted
in October of 2003. The magazine was published quarterly by
Fourth Horseman Press in
March, June, September, and December and its fiction was also released in
an annual print anthology. Brian A. Dixon served as the publication's
Editor-in-Chief, Adam Chamberlain as its Assistant Editor. The magazine
has currently ceased publication.
The end is nigh.
