How To Tie Basic Knots [Instructions]:

Step one: Take the rope in both hands. Form a small loop at one end of a rope by running the tag end over the standing line.

Step two: Stop. Put the rope down.

Step three: Open a browser. Navigate to http://shoutsetubangbang.com. Find the most recent issue.

Step four: Read thoroughly, paying close attention to the techniques described within the smutty queer contents.

Step five: Leave comments for the creators whose work you have enjoyed. Share that appreciation on social media.

Step six: Find a willing pair of limbs, your own or someone else's. Hold them steady. Pick up the rope again.

Congratulations! You have learned how to tie a basic knot. For more advanced knots, check out past issues of Shousetsu Bang*Bang.

Which unnamed queer webzine, now in its eighteenth year of production, just released its newest issue? Rumors are flying!

A tipster tells us that the zine's 95th issue is now out -- and we do mean out. This issue comes complete with steamy, scandalous tales of queer romance that would be quite a shock to the fans. That same tipster says it's "off-the-charts sexy" with "wall-to-wall smut" that covers everything from the stage to the screen, from movies to music, from the internet to real life.

What few know is that despite being one of the most exclusive events of the year, this issue is apparently completely free! No cover charge, no subscription model -- they're just really giving this away?

What do we think? Your guesses are welcome in the comments as always, as are your words of appreciation for the creators!

Bite, by the Winter Cynic

~*~

Well, friends, we did it: another year of Shousetsu Bang*Bang!

For our final issue of the year, we present our theme-free big bang: over a quarter of a million words, tons of images, and more smutty queer goodness than you'll know what to do with. Hopefully, in this busy season, you'll be able to find a quiet moment to enjoy curling up by the fire (or the air conditioner, depending on your location) with these stories of love.

If you'd like to return this Non-Denominational Holiday Gift-Giving favor, please do two things: one, share the news on social media, and two, leave comments for creators telling them how much you enjoyed their work. We remain an all-free, all-volunteer publication because so many people have worked their tails off this year, all for the love of making things and sharing them with others. Appreciation is our currency here, so please remember to tip big.

We hope you'll join us again in 2022, where we have lots of things to look forward to -- including our centennial issue! Check out the list of themes and dates, then click here for our Google Calendar with the dates pre-loaded and add it to your own so you don't miss a beat.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us continue to be the content we want to see in the world.

Love (and other gay shit),

your editors

Found in the drafts folder of the late Francis Wayland Thurston, of Boston

The above listed were the contents of the issue I read, and now I have placed them all in my bookmarks folder, along with all other abominable pieces of my browser history. With it shall go this record of mine — this test of my own sanity, wherein I have descended into the very mouth of erotic madness itself. I have looked upon all that the universe has to hold of pornographic horror, and even the skies of spring and flowers of summer I can no longer look upon without the singular thought: gaaaay.

But I do not think it shall be long before I return to these entrancing pages. As so many others before me have gone, so shall I know. I know too much, and the issue is still live.

Shousetsu Bang*Bang still lives, too, again in that foul and dreary void we call the internet. Though oft in the past it has seemed to sink beneath the waves, lost for all eternity, its ministers on earth still bellow and prance and proclaim its glories from glowing screens in lonely places. It is not trapped eternal within the abyss, but rises now with its newest issue, calling forth queer terrors until the world screams with frenzy and delight. Who knows the end? What has risen may sink, and what has sunk may rise (if you know what I mean). A rainbow of spine-chilling monstrosities waits and dreams in these pages, and news of its coming spreads across the tottering platforms of social media. A time will come — and that time is upon us now!

If I do not survive this issue, may others herald its arrival and leave comments for the creators, as a warning to others of what mind-bending, jaw-dropping, not-safe-for-work mysteries lurk within its borders. Alas, I fear it is too late for me. I feel my mouse pointer drifting slowly, inexorably toward the links, as with trepidation and rapture I once more descend—

Interested in doing a cover for one of the first five issues? We're looking for full-color, finished pieces with homosuggestive, if not downright homoerotic, themes. Looking back at the covers of our previous issues, you can see that they run the gamut from sweet to sexy, from serious to silly, and everything in-between.

If you're game, send us an email at shousetsubangbang@gmail.com and list your top three theme choices. We can't promise that everyone will get everything they want, but we'll do our best. Preference will be given to individuals who a) have been active participants in SSBB, and b) have not done a cover the previous year.

This is a signup for the October 25 issue; the text deadline for the issue is Tuesday, October 12 and the art deadline is Saturday, October 23.

Please comment here if you plan to submit a story or artwork for this issue. Artists should specify whether you're submitting a standalone piece, offering to illustrate a story, or doing both. Artists offering to illustrate should provide either links to or thumbnails of past works as examples of style; writers wishing to collaborate with artists (or artists wishing to collaborate with writers) should respond directly to comments to this post.

The theme for this issue is Strange Aeons: That is not dead which can eternal lie ... but is it sexy? Find out in our traditional spooky October issue!

NOTE: SSBB's October issue traditionally waives that general rule that says all stories submitted here should have shiny happy endings. If you still want your characters to wind up happily ever after, go for it! However, if you're inclined from time to time to take things to more ambiguous conclusions, this is your chance.
