Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to join Shousetsu Bang*Bang Issue 99 and our loyal readers in holy matrimony.

Readers, will you take this issue, to read and to enjoy, to savor and devour, to recommend to others, to share on social media, to comment upon as a way of thanking the creators for their hard work, as long as you both shall live?

You will? That’s great.

And Shousetsu Bang*Bang, will you take these readers, to supply with erotic queer stories of a Halloween nature, to delight with tales of the macabre, to spellbind with artistic delights, to titillate with smutty encounters, to provide this all freely and eagerly to them, as long as you both shall live (and potentially afterward, given the number of ghosts and other undead things that show up in this issue)?

…It says it does. Okay, moving on.

Now readers, repeat after me: I take you, Issue 99, to be my issue, knowing full well that this is the October issue, and that October means that the content tends toward both the frighteningly sexy and the sexily frightening, so I should probably check out the creators’ notes first just in case.

By virtue of the authority vested in me as The Editor, I now present to you our horrifyingly good Issue 99.

You may kiss whomever you like.

(For summaries, creators’ notes, and more, we would usually tell you to see this issue’s entry on the Shousetsu Bang*Bang wiki. In the interim, however, please visit the relevant Google Doc of contributor commentary for similar content.)
