Midnight Times, Summer 2009… (coming soon!)

I’ll be coming with my 3rd appearance to one of the longest-running horror webzines out there, Midnight Times.  In the meantime, check out their free archive.  The current story will take place in July 2009 in what I believe to be a special “zombie-themed” edition.  

MIDNIGHT TIMES – SUMMER 2009

I must confess… with the upcoming signings and reviews, book fairs, bookings and new opportunities which have recently been tossed in my lap, I have not had the time to update this webpage as much as I’d like.  I must also confess I’m now behind by roughly twenty blog entries and twenty fiction pieces which, due to having a personal life besides writing, I will not entirely catch up to anytime soon.  So if you see the blog entries few and far in-between, that’s a good sign.  In the meantime, let’s embrace the digital era (take note of the new eBooks & Kindle link above – things are coming).

Midnight Times; Darkness e-Zine… (acceptance)

Acceptance No. 295 will come sometime later this year to Editor Jay Manning’s Midnight Times web magazine; A Darkness e-Zine for Creative Minds.  Themed, too.  This would be my second acceptance with the publication — I first appeared four years ago with The Ghouls of Charon, and back then I had only sixty credits to my name (the old bio brought back some fond memories).

(Summer 2004 Back Issue – Free Reading)

In terms of webzines, I would have to say Midnight Times is one of the longest running in  regards to supernatural and traditional horror; articles centered around the paranormal, too.  I first found them listed in the Writer’s Market back in 2004.  Nice to see they’re still around…

Midnight Times, Summer 2004… (appearances)

And now, direct from the DAGSTINE LAND archives… A Blast from the Past…!

December’s Blast from the Past goes to a supernatural horror webzine still in existence.  A quarterly webzine found in the Writer’s Market. A few years ago you had publications like Night Terrors, Black Satellite, All Hallows, Black Petals, Outer Darkness, The Silver Web, Deathrealm, 2AM Magazine, and Cyber-Psychos AOD.  I was a real amateur then, but during those years (a.k.a. the pre-blogging phenomenon), you had online entities such as The Midnight Times! These were the good old days of online & print horror, folks, when The Writer’s Market barely listed Horror markets at all.

Summer 2004 Archives; the archives are always available, and after almost five years of superior-themed dark fiction, I’d like to wish Midnight Times the best.  Here’s to another five great years, another twenty issues, showcasing some of yesterday’s up-and-comers.

SUMMER ISSUE 2004 – GHOST STORIES (#6)

THE GHOULS OF CHARON BY LAWRENCE R. DAGSTINE.
“Ready for the big show?” Captain Aramis was standing beside a power winch that fed cold fusion through a generator extending out the side of the rocket’s hull and down into the strange icy mists surrounding the chunk of ice better known as Charon… (continued)

SARAH SMOKES MARLBOROS BY KATHERINE M. SIEBENALER.
When I was a good girl I had blond hair and white knee socks and a secret taste for Marlboro Lights. I attended an all-girls Catholic high school of enough notoriety in town that our navy blue and gold uniforms were instantly recognizable and the even modestly-devout would go out of their way to stop us on the street… (continued)

TO KEEP SOMETHING IN BY RICK MCQUISTON.
Dylan sat quietly in the rear seat of his father’s Oldsmobile. The car hummed a monotonous drone as an endless sea of corn stalks, trees and unevenly dispersed foliage flew past the windows. It was another trip to Grandpa’s cottage… (continued)

VENGEANCE FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE POETRY BY JOHN MEANY.

THE WATERGHOST BY DONNA MARIE ROBB.
“Why must you always be so serious, sister?” Leyrra asked Faylith in her annoyingly cheerful manner. They, along with some of the other students at the Guild House, were helping the kitchen women peel tubers, stuff mushrooms and gut fish in preparation for tonight’s feast… (continued)
