If you like off-beat, and we mean REALLY off-beat futuristic fiction, then you need to read The Poet by the late James Baker…
Max checked out of reality years ago. When he comes back, he finds himself to be a bum dressed like a priest. He also finds himself to be the only potent man in an otherwise impotent America.
Max eventually reaches the west coast where he finds himself the host of an hour long TV show watched by billions. His adoring fans begin to call him The Poet, and they see him as the savior of the world.
Joined by his triplet lovers, Max sets out to change the world; a world that is more than a little resistant to his efforts. Smothered by his adoring fans and dogged by men intent on killing him, Max’s multiple personalities fight their own battle in his mind, and no one is ever sure who will win.

We’re very excited to announce some changes that will be coming to our long-running zine The Fifth Di… in 2016.
First of all, the zine will still be available as an electronic zine, but it will also be available as a 6X9 print magazine. Contributors will receive one copy of each. It’s our hope that adding the print format will allow us to eventually add more stories, bring poetry back, and increase our payments for contributors.
Second of all, we’ve changed our pay rates slightly. We’ve lowered them for shorter stories, but increased them for longer stories.
