Editorial Reviews

Timothy Wood
Awesome stories. I have been a fan of horror genre and pulp magazines for sometime. This digest is something that is of high quality. My kudos to the editor/creator/owners. The magazine is not full of gratuitous violence or anything like that...they are things that tickle the human psyche. The true horror in any situation--in my humble opinion---is situational to the characters in place. The stories in this collection are very well written.
Dale Wilson
I've been an avid reader of Weird Tales for a long time, but was looking for something more to satisfy my hunger for good horror short stories. Well, this magazine has accomplished that in a big way. The stories were entertaining, as for the features, not sure yet, I've just read the stories, but that is what I'm looking for. I wish it could be monthly, hopefully in the future if everyone catches on it will be. The magazine itself is nicely bound like Fantasy and Sci-Fi magazine.
Caren Hanten
When I got this digest, I was hoping for a magazine much like Cemetery Dance and other horror publications. I couldn't have been more wrong! This is no flimsy magazine format, but more of a larger paperback sort of book. It will easily last through many readings and look quite nice on a bookshelf as well. The stories were first rate, with a level of talent that I had not expected, and the other features were both amusing and well written. I would say this is a MUST for any fan of horror! KUDOS.

    I have to agree with Caren Hanten - the ink on Dark Moon Digest

    I have to agree with Caren Hanten - the ink on Dark Moon Digest doesn't wear off on the fingers as it does with CD and there is 98% LESS advertising. The stories are fantastic - I started out buying the first 6 volumes, was rather put out when I found out that they don't yet offer subscriptions, just ordered Volume #7 and plan on buying them every time they come out. If you enjoy good short horror fiction, this is the place to find it!!

    Mystery, Tension, and Fright... Sleep with a Nightlight!

    The Dark Moon Digest: The Horror Fiction Quarterly released its first issue in October, ushering horror enthusiasts into a new era of quarterly horror stories, compiled for their fright and enjoyment. The first issue featured seven short stories, one classic horror story, a book review of Black Wings, horror poetry, and three columns: From the Dark "Demonic Children" by Jeremiah Dutch, Chattering Bones "A Brief History of Zombies" by Manny Frishberg, and Under the Basement Stairs "Shadow Soul" by Michael O'Neal.

    The Horror Fiction Quarterly warns readers, "If you don't own a nightlight, maybe now's the time to invest in one," presenting original, horrifying, and thrilling short stories, accompanied by original artwork. Erin K. Coughlin's "Slut," tells the tale of a girl who receives mysterious and eerie notes that quickly segue from those of a possible secret admirer to a ominous stalker, as they become creepier, demanding, and threatening, appearing on her pillow and everywhere she turns. As his demands escalate, ordering her to move "Somewhere cozy, wholesome... far away from all of the dirty influences I could pick up at school" to a "house with a locked basement and wrap-around porch," going on to demand that her father quit smoking, her mother give up her cat, and the whole family give up television, tensions and suspense mount, bringing readers breathlessly towards the denouement. Among the other suspenseful and horrifying tales are C.W. LaSart's "Jack and Jill," Christopher Leppek and Emanuel Isler's "Moon Medicine," Corey Kellgren's "Remaining Zheng," Nicholas Conley's "The Skunk Ape," Jay Wilburn's "The Interrogation of John Walker," and Kevin McClintock's "Darkest Before Dawn."

    Each story is filled with mystery, tension, and fright, satisfying readers' thirst for all things terrifying. The Horror Fiction Quarterly is an impressive collection of work by both new and established writers, bringing horror to its subscribers through a variety of artistic mediums, inspiring fear, nightmares, and, as readers were forewarned, the desire to sleep with a nightlight.

    Not Your Average Quarterly!

    For fans of quality horror magazines such as Cemetery Dance, look no further than Dark Moon Digest! Not only are the stories great~wtitten by up and coming horror authors, but the format is fantastic! Gone is the flimsy magazine format~this Digest comes complete with a glossy cover and is more of a paperback book! Good job to Stan and his group of top notch editors!
