He spent five days without electricity, surrounded by wreckage, and what did he do with the little powerContinue reading “Hurricane Sandy vs. the big bad Jersey Devil”

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 timeContinue reading “Jersey Devil Press is scary good!”

Ryan Werner (Wrote a Book) — and I’m one of the dudes publishing it

Jersey Devil Press is going down the rabbit hole

But you’ll be lucky if it’s just rabbits you find down there. Seriously, this is a fairly dark issue, in some beautifully haunting ways. There are stories here that give me the chills, stories here that make me want to cry, and — lest you think we’ve lost our sense of humor — stories thatContinue reading “Jersey Devil Press is going down the rabbit hole”

Jersey Devil Press is full of superheros…

Or animals. Because for some reason, our Avengers-inspired assembly of Jersey Devil All-Stars didn’t wind up writing about superheros, but about animals. Every story. Which is awesome, because we’re talking about stories from Kimberly Lojewski,  Ryan Werner, y.t. sumner, and Hilary Gan. Hobos and alligators, lost dogs and too many pudding cups, talking birds and suicide,Continue reading “Jersey Devil Press is full of superheros…”

The Jersey Devil puts on its reading glasses

The April 2012 issue of Jersey Devil Press is online, and this month, we’re getting all cultured. And stuff. Many of the stories deal with writers, literary references, rejection — the grist of the everyday writing mill. And a couple of the stories deal with Art. Capital A. But don’t worry, we’re not looking down ourContinue reading “The Jersey Devil puts on its reading glasses”
