SF REVU reviews Jupiter #22 and Tales of the Talisman…

I received word that SF REVU (www.sfrevu.com), reviewed two magazines featuring stories of mine in it.  For those of you unfamiliar with SF REVU, they’re a web-based publication devoted to SF industry news, reviews, interviews, book plugs, and more.  I see them as a smaller, online version of LOCUS.  Review links, magazine issues, and ordering info below:

I highly recommend reading Jupiter and Tales of the Talisman… Both fine magazines now going into their fifth years with a slight modicum of success.  As for SF Revu, I’ll add them to Author Resources.

Tales of the Talisman, Summer 2008… (appearances)

Well, one publication you can definitely find me in is TALES OF THE TALISMAN with: “The Invisible Enemy.” This would be my second appearance with the magazine.  The Summer 2008 issue, Volume 4-1.  The cover art was done by Laura Givens (I love her work: http://www.lauragivens-artist.com).  Talisman is edited by David Lee Summers.


Summer 2008; Volume 4.1



CONTENTS: Richard Harland introduces us to a society that didn’t have written language, but rather communicated through scents. Rick Novy takes us off to a world where people race basilisks. Did you ever think your coworkers were mutants? Well, Michael D. Turner takes us to a laboratory where the workers really are mutants! Donna Marie Robb takes us to the world of the imagination and introduces us to the dream painters.  Lawrence R. Dagstine takes us back in time to WW2, where a submarine must battle a giant, mechanical squid built by the Nazis.  These and LOTS of other stories and poems in the Summer 2008 issue of Tales of the Talisman…

The Willows Magazine, June 2008… (Now Available!)

It’s finally here! The spectacular One-Year Anniversary issue of one of dark fiction’s most popular magazines: THE WILLOWS!  And, once again, I am FEATURE AUTHOR.  Only this time I surprise the reader with a title picked out by Frances Rowat, as part of a special subscriber contest.  Set sail with me and editor Ben Thomas, and a plethora of other talent with tales of their own, as I take you on a monstrous World War Two voyage reminiscent of Ancient Greek Myth and Lovecraft’s DAGON!


May/June 2008 – One-Year Anniversary

Through the work of rising authors like G. D. Falksen, Lawrence Dagstine, and Paul Marlowe, we are also pioneering the genre of “steampunk horror,” in which elements of the golden age weird tale or Gothic romance are combined with an elegant 19th-Century proto-science-fiction aesthetic, such as that embodied by Wells, Verne, and the earliest pulp writers.

The Nautilus Engine, April 2008… (appearances)

You can now find a reprint of mine in the April 2008 edition of THE NAUTILUS ENGINE (Vol. 1, no. 4).  Edited by Christian Klaver.   The publication primarily focuses on “weird tales”, or those little horror and dark fantasy stories which are easily comparable to the works of Robert E. Howard, H.P. Lovecraft, Algernon Blackwood, Jules Verne, and H.G. Wells.

April 2008 – Volume 1, Number 4



Volume 1, Issue 4 Fiction by: Lawrence R. Dagstine, Heath Lowrance, Noel Penaflor, Michael John Grist, John B. Rosenman, and Christian Klaver.
