SPFBO 7 started off on June 1st and as many of you know, the Asylum is not a judging blog anymore. But not all of us stepped back from the competition.

Three Crows Magazine #2 by Alex Khlopenko
Three Crows Magazine had only started its journey, this only being the second issue, but I can already say it has a place in the market.

All of their stories represent a different culture, giving us a glimpse into our beautiful, colorful world through the eyes of SFF.
