Douglas Thompson mentions Sein und Werden/Sur-Noir on his blog.
I’m impressed. Rachel Kendall, the high priestess presiding over the cult mag Sein Und Werden has typed up the entire latest issue (guest edited by Marc Lowe) on an old fashioned antique typewriter thingy in order to capture the correct grungey ethos for this issue’s theme: “Sur-Noir”, an exotic blend of Noir crime writing and the Surreal. She has even filled out a USA State Attorney’s Probable Cause of Crime Affidavit form for the contents list. Dedication or what? This issue includes what is probably one of the most surreal stories I have ever written, called “The Sleep Corporation”, about a police detective who finds himself invited to a very strange party in the middle of the night… Go on order yourself up a copy, it only costs a recession-busting £2.50 right now.
Review by Terry Grimwood: http://exaggeratedpress.weebly.com/reviews-2.html
Sein und Werden is one of those great little magazines that cannot be pigeonholed but is always guaranteed to delight, shock and infuriate. Is it a horror magazine, a very, very dark fantasy publication, literature, avant garde? Well, all of those things and none. And, like a pill that will be good for you, it must be swallowed whole.

A brilliant article by Angela Slatter about the Little Red Riding Hood tale and how it’s been twisted all out of shape over time.
It’s been an interesting journey for Little Red Riding Hood. She started life in a tribal tale about a girl who outsmarts a wolf – all on her own, no outside help. A few centuries later, she gets a red cap, loses about twenty IQ points and gets eaten by a transvestite wolf. Add another hundred or so years, the cap becomes a hood, she loses a few more brain credits, gets molested, and then eaten by the same cross-dressing wolf but is rescued by a big, strong man and learns never to disobey the rules again
Thanks to Peter Tennant for bringing this to my attention. You know how much I love my transvestite wolves.
