Blood, Blade and Thruster, the magazine I blog for is closing up shop and Arkham Tales, the magazine that accepted my favorite zombie story, is doing likewise (before my story gets published). I find these things out within a couple of days of each other!

This news is truly harshing my mellow.

Arkham Tales cited the economic downturn. They posted each issue as a free pdf and took advertising to help compensate the editor for all his hard work. I think each issue turned out very well, but excellent artwork and a high production value. I’m sad the my piece won’t appear there and even more unhappy that they couldn’t make a go of it.

If you’re a fan of horror or the weird tale, check them out and download the handful of issues they produced. You’ll find something you like, I’m sure.
