Additional information

This magazine enjoyed a 3-year run from 1996-1999, in print for 9 issues and online for 9 issues. Recently, the stars aligned in such a way that I am able to work a bit of overtime and resurrect the print version starting in Nov./Dec. of 2002.

As before, the format is "dark literature" – defined by me as (to quote Webster's) "gloomy; dismal; sinister; deep and rich with a melancholy sound."

Think turn of the century "weird tales," not turn of the millennium blood, gore,
and porn.

The magazine is 16 pages (5.5 x 8.5), saddlestitched, with 500 copies distributed free throughout Cleveland (Ohio) and maybe a handful in Cincinnati. It will see 6 issues a year with roughly 3 stories and 3 poems per
issue.

Word counts:
2500 max for single-issue fiction/essays
5000 max for fiction/essays to be split over 2 issues
50 lines max for poems

I also need artwork, but it MUST be black-and-white only (no half-tones or
photographs).

Payment: 3 copies of "your" issue.
