Infernal Ink Magazine is a different sort of a literary magazine, which focuses on publishing extremely dark and violent adult fiction and poetry.
In this issue we have an interview with podcast personality and writer Aden Ardennes, the perverted mind behind “Militant Eroticism”. As always, Dave Lipscomb makes an appearance with his music column “The DaveL’s Music” and his art column “Odd Ocularities”. See sights here that you will not see anywhere else.
Also we have fiction and poetry from Matthew J. Barbour, Robert Leuthold, N.R. Tomasheski, Marten Hoyle, D.T. Berkowitz, G. Large, David Barclay, Brendan Vidito, John Grey, Natalie Satakovski, John Dawson Jackson, James Gianforti, and Berti Walker.
This magazine contains adult content and themes and is not meant for readers under eighteen years of age.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I'm not a romantic person and I knew I could count on Infernal Ink to deliver a spring edition that features love and sex in a different way from all the romantic doodoo: dark, devious and, more often than not, deadly.
There were several stories that grossed me out in this issue - D.T. Berkowitz's The Love Garden made me gag the most - but it was the opening story, Ixtab Awaits by Matthew Barbour, that stuck with me after I finished reading the whole issue. Ixtab is a Mayan goddess not popular in paranormal fiction and I only know that because Barbour made me google. That's education; learning was involved - that's heroic author crap going on right here in this issue. Don't make me beg for more.
(Oh pretty pretty please).
