Overview

These stories are cursed!

Contained in this mini-collection are five stories that killed the magazines that bought them.

Some writers kill more magazines than others. To kill a magazine is to sell them a story that never sees print because the magazine goes out of business first. The stories in this collection are from one writer who managed to kill multiple magazines in a short period of time. In an effort to break the curse, this collection was published as a chapbook back in 1998. Did it work? Maybe. The author hasn't killed any magazines lately, but then again, he's been focused on writing novels.

Take a trip into realms of horror and fantasy!
