Jersey Devil Press’s October issue is out today, and the work is freakishly good, people! Emphasis on the freaks: in addition to ghosts and Halloween stories, we have mermaids, dog-people, Arkansas magicians, and — most frightening of all — brutish adolescent boys trying to grab some boob.
It’s great stuff, and just in time for the scariest month of the year. (Yes, I know the election is in November, but October is the fun kind of scary.)
And once again we’ve been super-fortunate in the quality of our cover art, and after half a year of awesome paintings and illustrations, I’m thrilled to be switching back to photography this issue.
So grab your candy corn and your devil horns and tuck in, gang! 🙂

I’m always in the mood for a good scary story. It’s something awesome about frightening yourself, especially in October. I plan on visiting a lot of “haunted” places near Halloween time. I’ll go check out the Jersey Devil Press now 🙂
I agree! I love October for all its haunted, terrifying fun. Hope you enjoy the issue, Yawatta! We love a good scary story at Jersey Devil — in addition to this Halloween-themed issue, our June and July issues went pretty dark and scary, too.
And my wife is devoting all of October to scary movies over at her librarians-in-film blog <a href="http://reel-librarians.com/" target="_blank"Reel Librarians!
I feel the urge to carve some pumpkins now…. 🙂
LOL, I just finished downloading and printing off the October issue. I’ll look at your June and July issue after I’m finished; I’m a pretty fast reader.
I don’t know what it is, but I have no problems reading on a Kindle. In fact, I love it. But if I have to stare at a computer screen long, then I lose interest. That’s why I always print something off if you were wondering.
P.S. It sounds like you, your wife, and other fellow writers are pretty busy. Keep up the good work. I love seeing author’s sharing their stories with the world.
Ha! I do the same thing — I can only read so much on any screen, but I can read for hours on paper. 🙂
