Funhouse magazine is the new literary zine that has stirred quite a storm in its brief existence owing to its deceptively classic look that packs a punch. Yet another title from UK, the magazine is aimed to be a quarterly print.


The name of the magazine is inspired by a story ‘Lost in the Funhouse’ by American writer John Barth. In the inaugural issue, many of the stories are about diseased bodies and bodily transformations, of missing noses and castration. The Hackney-based editor OLIVER ZARANDI and designer FRAN MARCHESI, wanted the magazine to be offbeat, dark and funny.

Funhouse, which features short stories, comics and illustrations captured our imagination with its non-traditional stories and gunky look. Our curiosity was further piqued by the theme of the magazine i.e. body, which we understand is not limited to just this first issue but every issue in the future is intended to be themed around body, one way or another.

This one makes for a quirky read, a thorough workout for your imagination if we might add.
