3 of a Perfekt Pear


3 of a Perfekt Pear NDP3 of a Perfekt Pear by Daniel C. Smith

3 of a Perfekt Pear brings you three stories from the mind of Daniel Smith. Take two trips into space and a trip into the mind. These stories will have you questioning what reality is, and also what our future holds for us. In the end, you’ll be asking yourself, should we embrace the future, or run from it. No matter what, you’ll know that the future will be 3 of a Perfekt Pear…


The Fifth Di… will be closing to submissions for a while


Effective June 5th, 2017, The Fifth Di… will be closing to submissions until December 1st, 2017. The reason for this is that we are already buying stories for the December 2018 issue, and we hate making writers wait so long to see their little gems in print. We are on Patreon now, and if we can add quite a few patrons, we will be able to open back up sooner, as we will be able to add more stories to each zine.
