Table of Contents for new THE HORROR ZINE antho unveiled

Posted in News on July 9, 2018 by Christian

Near the end of the double-aughts, when other genre magazines were shutting down at an alarming rate, Jeani Rector had an idea. Why not start a magazine of her own? One with a simple name that was easy to find. One that was free to read and featured a cross-section of writing talent seldom seen elsewhere. The result was THE HORROR ZINE, which published it’s first issue in July 2009.


In December of that same year, THE HORROR ZINE released it’s first anthology: AND NOW THE NIGHTMARE BEGINS, featuring stories by Ramsey Campbell, Simon Clark, Joe R. Lansdale. More anthologies followed, with stories from reputable and emerging authors, such as TWICE THE TERROR, WHAT FEARS BECOME, A FEAST OF FRIGHTS, SHADOW MASTERS, and SHRIEKS AND SHIVERS. In 2016, Rector released THE BEST OF THE HORROR ZINE: THE EARLY YEARS showcasing the best of the first three books.

Now, there’s a new anthology on the way from THE HORROR ZINE, building on the tradition Rector started nine years ago, and this time, there’s a theme: ghost stories. The book will feature a forward by Horror Writers Association President Lisa Morton, and stories from a bevy of talented authors (and also me):

You probably recognize some names on that list. And some are probably new to you. But if you like a good ghost story and love a good scare, you won’t want to miss THE HORROR ZINE’S BOOK OF GHOST STORIES, coming soon to a bookshelf near you!
