IT IS FINALLY HERE!
When we started Aphotic Realm, we had a clear vision of how we wanted the website, magazine, and beyond to form. This inaugural issue has been quite the learning experience but we couldn’t be more pleased with how it turned out. We were hesitant on doing a theme for the issue at first but it worked out wonderfully. It helped the stories, artwork, and general vibe of the issue coalesce into an amazing collection. We are proud of every page, image and word of this issue and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
Despite the copious amounts of coffee that was consumed to make this issue come to fruition, (may ye ever run through our veins), we’d like to take a moment to thank all of our talented writers who believed in what we were doing as much as we did and took the time to submit their stories. Also a thank you is in order for Roland Mann and Matthew Peters for allowing us to interview them.
We couldn’t have done this without any of you.
