Jersey Devil Press is scary good!


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! 🙂

  1. 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 🙂

    Keep smiling,

    1. 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="; target="_blank"Reel Librarians!

      I feel the urge to carve some pumpkins now…. 🙂

      1. 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.

        Keep smiling,

        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.
