Sybil's Garage is a unique little small press magazine, published out of Hoboken, New Jersey. It seems like an evocation of the past with old illustrations sprinkled throughout. But it is filled with experimental kinds of fiction. One thing very different is that in the heading of every story, poem or interview is a suggestion of a piece of music to accompany it. There were three stories I especially liked. "Indentured Advertisements" by Gary J. Beharry, is exactly about what the title says. I can't give away more. "It's What Isn't There" by Lee Thomas is a chilling little tale of a child trying to help his father through a rough time. "How I Got Fired From the Best Damned Job in the Whole Wide World" by Samantha Henderson is a funny little story about a cool job and things that go wrong.

The rest of the stories were a little too experimental for my tastes. "The Redaction of Flight 5766" by Eric Gregory is an odd little tale about a airport security man's odd little day. "Six Questions About the Sun" by Brian Conn is more fanciful than scientific with little adventures of a man called Tariq the Cosmonaut used to illustrate a point. "So That Her Highborn Kinsmen Come" by Yoon Ha Lee is a story about the raising of a child. The answer to "What Do Women Want" by Helena Singer is not particularly interesting. "Holes" by Paul G. Tremblay details a man's strange obsession. "Lonesome Trail" by Cat Rambo is a story of poets looking for a promised land.

If you like stories that are long on mood, you might like this magazine.
