Thank you Dark Valentine magazine for The Variant Effect shout out.
I lifted the following out of Dark Valentine’s About section:
Dark Valentine is a quarterly journal devoted entirely to dark fiction, which we define as any story in any genre that is disturbing, provocative, haunting, scary, dangerous, or any combination of those things. Think of classic stories like “The Mummy’s Paw,” “The Open Window,” “The Tell-Tale Heart,” and “The Lady or the Tiger?” Think of Jack London’s “To Build a Fire,” William Faulkner’s “A Rose for Emily,” Harlan Ellison’ “I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream,” J.D. Salinger’s “A Perfect Day for Bananafish,” and Tanith Lee’s “Because Our Skins are Finer.”
They’ve assembled a great cast of writers, artists and editors. Check out their first FREE issue here. I’m a friend and fan of many in the crew so PLEASE pop over and download an copy. Great Reading.
