Einstein’s Pocket Watch, September 2010 (2nd Acceptance!)

I’ll be coming for a second time to what, over the last year or so, has become a very popular and free webzine for writers of poetry, inspirational stories, Christian Fiction, Experimental Fiction, Some Science Fiction and Fantasy, Christian Science Fiction, and more or less stories that are uplifting.  NO horror.  Rob Crandall’s: Einstein’s Pocket Watch.  This would be my 2nd upcoming appearance to the webzine, but with a mainstream/literary piece this time.  I was in the first issue, and I’ll be back again September 2010.  It’s a wonderful blog webzine.  Check it out.

The Random Eye, Volume #2… (2010 Edition!)

The 2010 edition of The Random Eye is now up — an annual e-Zine dedicated to alternatives, communication that breaks the mold, universes or altiverses that are parallel in nature, and where, for the new decade, tea is the ongoing theme.  Edited by Melissa Jones, The Random Eye is also The Random Radio.  Published annually.  Come, click, and have a cup.

The Random Eye, Volume #2; 2010… (coming soon!)

For the second year in a row, I’ll be appearing in the annual eZine, The Random Eye. The Random Eye is about parallel universes, alternate history, alternative fiction, and stories which break the boundaries of communication.  Edited by Melissa Jones, the Random Eye is also The Random Radio.  My second acceptance is coming in early 2010, Volume #2.  It can best be described as a weird tale with a dash of steampunk, a dash of the historical, part fairy tale and part science fiction.  Oh yeah, and the 2010 theme is… TEA!

By the way, they’re still actively seeking fiction until January 2010.

Labyrinth Inhabitant, September 2009… (Now Available!)

I’ll have a semi-long story coming soon to an upcoming edition of the online fiction zine, Labyrinth Inhabitant.  A very hard SF market to break into, they’ve featured such fantastic and familiar short story authors as Gareth D. Jones, Kristine Ong Muslim, Robert E. Keller, T.M. Crone, and Patricia Russo.

Einstein’s Pocket Watch, June 2009… (appearances)

I donated a spec-fic tale to a good friend’s new “start-up” webzine, entitled: Einstein’s Pocket Watch.  Edited by writer Rob Crandall, Einstein’s Pocket Watch plans to be a Christian-themed blog-zine.  That means NO horror and NO curse words.   Rob will look at science fiction and fantasy so long as it has a positive message; negative material and graphic fiction probably won’t find a home here.  Poetry is accepted.  Rob is a great guy.  I know him for a few years now, and he’s a superb writer in his own right.  He’s appeared in such publications as Doorways Magazine and Big Ole’ Face Full of Monster.   So let’s help him make this new venture a success!

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

CLICK HERE: www.midnighttimes.com

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).

The Random Eye, January 2009… (appearances)

And here’s a quick appearance from over two months ago to THE RANDOM EYE: An Ezine Dedicated to Alternatives.  You can find a lot of cool stuff here (from alternate history to parallel universes). SFWA member Rick Novy is also in this issue, and I believe we’ll be appearing in some other stuff together later in the year.  Great writer, and an even greater fella to chat with.  In the meantime, be sure to read the premiere edition; it’s only published once per year.

The Random Eye, An Ezine Dedicated to Alternatives…

I’ll have a story appearing soon in a new and interesting ezine called THE RANDOM EYE.  Published Annually, they seem to accept work which is dark and speculative, but borders on the alternative, parallel (like universes), and the overall bizarre.  More than just “weird fiction”.  Be sure to check them out.

THE RANDOM EYE

An E-Anthology Dedicated to Alternatives

randomeye1

http://therandomeye.says.it

From their homepage: The Random Eye is a yearly anthology of horror and speculative fiction that focuses on the possibilities of parallel universes. Have you ever wondered what would happen if Rob Zombie became president, or if the Titanic was used for space travel, or if television was invented for communicating with the dead rather than entertainment? The Random Eye takes a simple theme for each anthology and encourages authors to imagine an existence far removed from our own, where a myriad alternate universes reside and where these strange possibilities exist.

Midnight in Hell: Issue 2.2, Autumn 2008… (appearances)

Another old-schooler in the horror genre (after a few years hiatus and formerly being a print mag), story No. 300 comes to MIDNIGHT IN HELL.  Entitled “Departure Flight”, this story is not for the faint of heart…lol… nah, just kidding.  Seriously though, Midnight in Hell is a fantastically entertaining webzine.  Some big names in the U.S. and UK have appeared there in more recent years: Rhys Hughes, Des Lewis, Willie Meikle, Paul McAvoy, and Amy Grech among others.

Midnight in Hell, Autumn 2008… (coming soon!)

Fiction Story No. 300 goes live in about a month or two in a web publication that has been celebrated both online and, originally, in print; hard to believe I’m already up to 330.  MIDNIGHT IN HELL made its debut in 1990, the good old days of short fiction.  It dropped out of existence for a while.  Then, in the last two years, it returned better than ever.  Only this time with a web presence.   Over the last two decades, the authors who have appeared there have gone many places, and their work just as celebrated. 

www.midnightinhell.com

Their current issue is some kind of tribute issue (summer 2008).  It features the work of: D.F. Lewis, Rhys Hughes, Shaun Jeffrey, Willie Meikle, Paul McAvoy, Todd Mecklem & Jonathan Falk.

Past issues or editions have featured: Alexandra Ash, Eric S. Brown, David Byron, Arianrhod Darkwing, Christopher Allan Death, Bryan DiTolvo, Brandon Ford, Inanna Gabriel, Ken Goldman, Amy Grech, Rhys Hughes, Robert Holt, Sarah Jackson, Shaun Jeffrey, Dan Kopcow, D.F. Lewis, Alison littlewood, Paul McAvoy, Iain McLachlan, Rick McQuiston, Willie Meikle, Isaiyan Morrison, David Nordahl, Nik Perring, Mike Philbin, David Price, James Riser, Deon C. Sanders, Tom Smith, Jim Steel, Paula Villegas, Jon Walsh, and many MORE from the 90’s old school printing press days.

I’ve added a link to the right.  In a month or two, when it premieres, I’ll add a reminder post.

Sein Und Werden, Summer 2008… (2nd acceptance)

Today’s acceptance is to Rachel Kendall’s very popular existentialist and surreal literature publication, Sein Und Werden.  Available in the UK.  They not only feature experimental prose, but artwork and poetry in their print version(s), too.  Each issue has featured renowned names in the British short story arena, and has its own unique theme.  Next issue’s theme is a “mathematical-meets-speculative” one, if I’m not mistaken (or ologies). The current issue is themed: Clandestine Encounters.

This would be my 2nd upcoming appearance…

In other news, I’ll also be appearing in four more spec-fic anthologies between this year and next (about the first two, for now).  One, which has already found a publisher is, SATIRICA: An Anthology of Satirical Speculative Fiction.  When I get more details, publishing information, lineups, stuff like that, I’ll be sure to post it.  Next, another SF anthology worth reserving, and edited by Darlene Oakley, would be: EISODOS STATION and Other Adventures.

The Ashen Eye, June 2008… (acceptance)

My latest acceptance comes to The Ashen Eye, which is a fairly new webzine combined with a blog component.  The sole purpose: promotion and exposure for the budding horror author.   Not just a great chilling tale.  The design is pretty creepy, too.  I can see this one going places in time, as webzines uploaded with blogs now through Wordpress and others seem to be one of the latest things to hit horror fandom.  They also plan on releasing a print version later on this year.  The publication is edited by Bas de Jong.

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)
