This week, we’ve got a story of spiritualism and séances from Chuck Borgia, apocalypse and annihilation from Konstantine Paradias, and a twisted tale of fast cars, fast women and fast food from Kent Rosenberger.
In Don’t Call Me Spaz! Gooer is confronted by the spirits of old, while in The Days of Mr Thomas, the man himself is climbing a mountain. In the Thousand Nights and a Night, Nur al-Din is at the mercy of a seemingly capricious caliph. In Cut, we learn more about the serial killer herself, and how she relates to Daryll.
In The Caves of Mars, Grae-don faces Treachery! while in The Airlords of Han, Rogers is Captured! but Tom is unencumbered by exclamation marks as he explores the country of The People That Time Forgot.
And in David Ludford’s The Bargain, an ill-treated wife sees a way out of her dreary life – but at what price?
There’s more killing in Cut, naturally enough, but in The Caves of Mars, the Empress decides against beheading Lodor. In The Airlords of Han, Rogers is experiencing trouble in the air. In The People that Time Forgot, Tom is troubled by the creatures of the Stone Age. And in Mathias Jansson’s Uluru, we re-encounter the Seven Goats.
Welcome to the dreaded night realm...
lingering just beneath your eyelids, where the hellish things borne of fear eagerly await your arrival.
Prepare to be whiplashed to the darkest regions of 32 wicked minds, and forced to stare into their collective abyss. This world is chock-full of the stuff dreams are made of, but more than likely, if you find yourself in the minds of one of these authors, you’ll awaken to a nightmare.
This fear you’re experiencing is like a virus, it will spread to every inch of your body, sending not only a chill down your spine but reaching into the very depths of your soul…
You’ll journey to the darkest corners of these author’s minds, as you confront the living, breathing entity that is fear.
Edited by Suzie Lockhart & Bruce Lockhart 2nd.
This week we have a seasonally-themed tale by Kevin L Jones, entitled Pumpkin Mask. Then there’s the latest chapter of Gary Murphy’s Don’t Call Me Spaz!, followed by an Arabian Nights fantasy by Konstantine Paradias. After that we have the real thing in the tale of Nur Al-Din Ali and the Damsel Anis Al-Jalis.
In Cut, Daryll gets another love letter from the serial killer. Grae-don sees someone he recognises has joined the caravan in The Caves of Mars. Rogers learns more of Han science in The Airlords of Han. And we’re continuing Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Caspak Trilogy this week with The People that Time Forgot…
And we end much as we began, with a Hallowe’en poem, this time, courtesy of that dark master, HP Lovecraft…
In the Arabian Nights Harun al-Rashid, Caliph of Bagdad, and Ja’afar, his grand vizier, have a murder mystery to solve. In Cut, Sam-I-Am is not happy – he knows that the Bitch and the Witch are on to him. Grae-don and his companions journey with The Dark Caravan in The Caves of Mars, while Rogers and his fellow Americans seek to sink the Han groundships. And in The Land that Time Forgot, Bowen searches for Lys in the prehistoric wilderness, in the last chapter of the first book in Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Caspak Trilogy.
And this Wednesday, our print magazine, Schlock! Bi-monthly (a collection of some of the best stories to feature in previous editions published by Horrified Press) will be available from Lulu.com
Next week: the spine-chilling Hallowe’en Edition!
The Arabian Nights have got as far as The Eldest Lady’s Tale, while in Cut, Sam-I-Am considers America to be his chessboard. Grae-don and his companions reach Qumq’s slave market in The Caves of Mars. Anthony Rogers continues to relate his adventures in the 25th century in The Airlords of Han, sequel to Armageddon 2419 AD. And in The Land that Time Forgot, our hero sets forth into the dinosaur-haunted wilderness.
We also have an interview with Jason Gehlert, author of Contagion (published by Horrified Press) and many more.
