The Jersey Devil loves you in that creepy, awkward way

jdp cover feb 14It’s that time of year, gang! When the stores are stuffed with pillowy heart-shaped boxes full of diabetes and the flower shops are spilling out into the streets and elementary school kids are covering shoeboxes with pink construction paper to hold all the little notes from their secret admirers moms and the severed heads float on ponds like beach balls . . . .

It’s the month that frames Valentine’s Day, as only Jersey Devil Press will bring it to you. And in addition to those floating heads (seriously, that’s the opening of one of our stories), we’re giving you candy-coated fiction and literary bouquets full of horse dreams, twisted fairy tales, the torture of growing horns, and sexually transmitted gnomes. Plus the flying demon heart that is cover artist Daniel Langhans’s “Carnecupulus.”

So settle in for the broken hearts and the floral allergies and the overpriced romantic dinners and the sugar rush, JDP readers! And don’t say we never gave you anything.
