of the issue that their work will be in and when that issue will be coming out

1) We will accept all kind of horror fiction, from vampire tales to "slasher" stories and anything in
between (but it must be in the realm of horror!!!!).  Tell us the tales that lurk within your mind!  We are not
looking for any sex or overuse of the "F---" word.  Violence is OK, without going overboard.

We are looking for articles on horror movies and TV
shows as well as any bios of Actors, Writers and Film
Makers.  We want articles on horror collectibles (toys and
stuff) Halloween Masks and Models.  Just horror, not
Stars Wars of science fiction.  Any articles on doing home
made horror makeup or How to articles on making items
for Halloween or for the general disturbed prankster.  

We are open to all kinds of poetry but since this is a
horror magazine, we like something from the dark side
mostly.  So no sunshine happy stuff please.  Dark, sad,
and sick stuff is what we are looking for.

If you have a new book coming out or movie to be previewed, we are always looking for independent books and
movies.  That is what we are all about and always looking for selections for Bloody Book Reviews, Behind the
Screams and for reviews and interviews.
