The maiden issue of The Future Fire, a free internet magazine of new writing in the dark, speculative, and fantasy genres, dated January 2005. The theme of this first issue—in as much as there is a theme above our own tastes—is the limits of the human: we have a story narrated by an ancient werewolf; an interview with a real Cyborg; a speculation piece on the virtual celebrity; reviews of books on witchcraft and the posthuman, a brand new independent film starring a cloned child, and of a range of fiction in book and film.

We invite you to enter, browse, read, enjoy and think. And if you feel inspired to comment, criticise, or contribute, then we should be delighted to hear from you. This magazine can only continue to exist and thrive with your help.

January 2005
