Receive FREE digital copies of the current and previous issues of the London Reader as soon as you register as a patron at any Rewards tier! Your first contribution to the London Reader will not be charged to your Patreon account until the release of the next issue.


Featuring great stories from thought-provoking perspectives, the London Reader magazine presents contemporary voices in creative writing. The fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, and interviews in each issue are curated, as if in a gallery, in order to explore a single theme, genre, region, or topic.

By subscribing to the London Reader, you're directly supporting the writers whose work is within its pages. Issues are cooperatively owned by their contributors, and each writer receives a proportionate share of your subscription amount. In addition, the curator of each issue designates a charity, detailed within, which receives 10 percent of revenue from the issue.

New issues are released four times per year on the first day of March, June, September, and December.

Current Issue:
Our lives are based on the fictions we tell ourselves and each other. Every new friendship grows out of the characters we present and perceive; every social media status and photograph we upload narrates the way we see the world; and every politician has a story they want us to believe. How can we navigate the truths and lies of our lives in this post-fact age?

In 2016, ‘post-truth’ was named the word of the year, and Matthew d’Ancona makes the case that we are living in a post-truth era. The short stories, poems, interviews, and art in this issue interrogate truth, lies, and the role of fiction in these trying times. Whether they deal with the big political lies we hear on TV or the little personal lies we tell about ourselves or our sexuality, the subtle and thought-provoking stories in this issue of the London Reader explore our difficult relationship with the truth—how we bend, break, and mend it—and they offer a pleasant reprieve from the swirling pandemonium of lies in our increasingly digital lives.

Truth, Lies, & Fiction for a Post-Fact Age features: new minifiction from Jeff Noon, author of Vurt; interviews with Yann Martel, author of Life of Pi, and Matthew d’Ancona, author of Post-Truth; as well as stories, poetry, and art from AJ Berasaluce, Ruth Brandt, Rachel Bullock, Nicholas Gurewitch of Perry Bible Fellowship fame, Kat Hanula, Barbara E. Hunt, Wes Lee, Andrew Lloyd-Jones, Scott Stavrou, Laura Theis, Daniel Uncapher, Mike Wilson, and Christopher Woods.

Whether from a timeless or decidedly 21st century perspective, all of the writing in this volume considers the role of truth and lies in our lives today. At a time when the news is called into question, fiction can help us rediscover the truth.
