It begins with a subtle titillation of curiosity…
groaning floorboards at the dark end of the hall…
the rising musk of something savage…
cloven hooves on cobblestones…
a quivering chill…
And then there’s no going back!
From the mists of antiquity to the edge of madness, the handpicked original fiction of Niteblade Magazine spans the finest reaches of Horror and Fantasy writing. Each issue features short stories and poems that intrigue, terrorize, inspire, and do not let you go!
June’s issue is a riveting mix of selections that soothe with a feather’s touch and wrench you back around with white-knuckle intensity. It’s the full experience and the full release of horror and fantasy at its most compelling.
The latest issue of Niteblade is out and available for consumption! It’s a funny thing about issues of this magazine, they tend to develop themes when we’re not looking. This particular one is largely about love and lovers. Neither Alexandra nor I planned it that way, it just sort of happened.
We’ve got five short stories and four poems just waiting to be devoured. The website is full of previews and teasers right now, and will stay that way until we reach our donation/fundraising goal for the month. If you like what you see and you just can’t wait any longer, you can pick up a downloadable copy (.pdf, .ePub or .Mobi) for less than three bucks. The added benefit of that is you’ll push us closer to our goal when we’ll make the entire issue available online for people to read for free.
This issue contains:
Clotho by L.S. Johnson
The Summer I Fell In Love by Aaron Polson
A Means for the Journey by Erin Cole
Monstrovarious by Adam Armstrong
Stone City Old as Immeasurable Time by Kelda Crich
The Bitter Gourd’s Fate by Anne Carly Abad
Looking-Glass Lover by Sara Norja
