The Folio Club is a literary magazine founded in 2009 that focuses on short fiction and story-like essays, and also includes indie comic art. It features a small handful of contributors on a recurring basis: writers Romy Ashby, Robert Pranzatelli, Mark Saba, and Peter Sims, artist Onsmith, and author-artist Lilli Carré.
All issues of the Folio Club are currently available in paperback book format, with vibrant, full-color wraparound covers, and can be purchased via Amazon U.S. or B&N.com, or requested from your favorite bookstore, online retailer, or library. (Beginning with its second issue, the Folio Club became available to booksellers via book wholesaler Ingram.)
“Superbly produced . . . fuses underground sensibilities with classical literary values.”
—Molossus“A good buy for your literary zine or comic art collection.”
—Fine Books & Collections“Beautiful and heartfelt”
“I look forward to each issue of the Folio Club. When I get the latest in my hands and open it, I am opening a window into another world. It is intelligent—smart and digestible—the selection feels eclectic but balanced and part of the same trip. After I have finished, and it is making the rounds through the office, there is always something that rubs off, that stays with me, to inspire, to ponder. Receiving the next Folio Club is my most anticipated literary event of each season. I love it!”
