Trigger 93, a new journal

By | January 27, 2011 | Print This Post | E-mail This Post | Comments Off

Trigger 93Launched in mid-December, Trigger 93 describes itself as “a radical new journal of literature, art, and the uncanny”, one that “juxtaposes magic(k)ally informed works created by established artists and academics with similar works created by established practitioners of magic(k)”. The journal is edited by Ayesha Adamo.

The first issue focuses on the Word, and includes contributions from Michael Taussig, James A Eshelman, Simryn Gill, Mikala Dwyer and Tamara Wyndham, amongst others.

The journal retails for 11$US and is available for purchase online.

I received a review copy a few weeks ago, and my review will be up shortly on

It looks like a great new journal, and I look forward to reading future issues.

Update: Review has been posted here.

Hoodoo & Conjure Quarterly, with a focus on “New Orleans Voodoo, Hoodoo and folklore”, describes its content as follows:

Each issue of Hoodoo & Conjure Quarterly magazine brings you original and traditional formulas [sic], spells, tutorials, root doctor, spiritual mother, and conjure artist profiles, workshop listings, book, product, & website reviews, and more!

The first issue came out in October 2010, and a four issue subscription starts at 39.95$US plus shipping (shipping price increases for Canadian and international subscribers).
