“Now that short fiction has become as standardized as the SATs and Common Core—all in order to ‘judge’ and ‘rank’ writers—I’m excited to see what Richard Thomas brings to the game. Gamut will be the new magazine not written for the little old lady in Dubuque.”—Chuck Palahniuk, author of Fight Club
“Gamut will be cool, and it will be out there, right on the edges of fiction. I can’t wait.”—Irvine Welsh, author of Trainspotting
“I beg to differ with Mr. Palahniuk: There’s a fabulous indie bookstore in Dubuque, and little old ladies have been known to write some astonishing speculative fiction. Some of it might even end up in this magazine, which promises to bring together the fresh and the dark and the extraordinary. Look for great, weird things from [Gamut].”—Rebecca Makkai, author of The Hundred-Year House
Richard Thomas is Kickstarting Gamut, a new magazine of neo-noir, speculative, literary fiction. Gamut aims to be a website with a wide range of voices—genre-bending, hybrid stories that utilize the best of genre and literary fiction.
The campaign ends on 2nd March 2016 and you can read more about it here.
