Dark Moon Digest

Looking for the newest and best-est in Horror fiction quarterlies?

Look no further, dear fiends. DARK MOON DIGEST will make your darkest dreams come true.

The new horror digest comes to you from Managing Editor and Publisher Stan Swanson, of Stony Meadow Publishing and Dark Moon Books. Stan is a horror author of long standing, having written four novels, a collection of Zombie shorts called “Forever Zombie” and several books on writing for songwriters and fiction authors (all of which are available at Stony Meadow Publishing or check Stan out on Amazon).

Of particular note to readers of this here page is the inclusion of yours truly as an Associate Editor. Which basically means I have become the enemy – the guy who plows through the submissions pile and picks out the potentially publishable.

I’ll admit to frequent guilt-pangs over having to be the one to dash the dreams of prospective authors, but it has given me a treasure trove of insight into my own process and what I need to look for before submitting my own work. I’m working hard to pick the best stories possible, not only to fulfill my own obsessive need to do a job properly, but also to ensure that Dark Moon Digest will be the best new horror publication out there. We’ll be available in E-pub and print formats sometime in October. I suggest you bookmark DARK MOON DIGEST and check back for details (or look for the link in the ol’ blarrrrghroll to your right).

So check us out come the Witching Time in October. You’ll curse us through your sleepless nights, but you’ll thank us in the morning.
