Horror Magazines Posted at 1:28 PM by Dave Post

I’ve been hearing for years that genre magazines are going the way of the Dodo. From where I’m standing, it looks like a pretty healthy market. On our Magazines page we have listed over 70 genre magazines for you to choose from and we keep finding more new ones to add all the time.

For our Month of Horrors I wanted to point out some of the Horror magazines from out list. If you’re looking for something creepy and scary these magazines will get the job done. Check ‘em out and if you find something you like show your support by subscribing!

 

Apex Magazine

Apex Magazine

Apex Publications started as a tingle in the mind of Jason Sizemore during the month of November in the year 2004. Having been a fan of the small press scene for several years, he noticed a lack of a certain type of fiction: Science-Horror.

Good of you to add “Something Wicked.” Of course, based near me in Cape Town. It always featured some astonishing and amazing artwork, and had contributions from S.L. Grey and Lauren Beukes. Joe Vaz did a great job with it.

Sadly, though, the monthlies have ended. Hopefully the planned anthologies will still go ahead.

Several of these are available digitally at the Weightless Books site. It might just be the traditional print magazines that are going the way of the dodo, as more and more move to web/electronic or print/digital hybrid formats.

@Scott personally I think magazines specifically only have longevity going the electronic route. Eventually there won’t be any other way.

I didn’t know that Something Wicked was from SA – that’s cool! The magazines have to adapt to the market so it’s not surprising that many, if not most, have an electronic version or have changed to fewer editions per year or even have gone all electronic. I hope there will always be hard copies though even if they’re a little more expensive. I like the feel of real.

By the way, if anyone knows of any magazines that we’ve missed please let us know so we can update our list.

I still get mags in dead tree format, but that will change when color e-ink is perfected. At the moment, color screens are too harsh, and black and white e-ink screens, though great for books, don’t make sense for the magazine format.

Also, for me to transition my mags to e-book format, I’d need a full-size screen (at least 8½ x 11). Right now that means iPad or the big B&W Kindle.

Give me full sized color e-ink reader, and I’ll shift my dead trees subscriptions to digital. I hope that day comes soon, because I am running out of shelf space.

Agreed that paper still rules where color and layout are important, but I’ve change my subs for Asimov’s and F&SF to Kindle, as that’s really not an issue for the fiction mags like the ones listed in the post… I do read a few things like Locus and The Economist on a tablet (just got one last summer), but tend to read them in fairly short time chunks, and screen fatigue has been less of an issue that I would have expected…

I think I’ve noticed these a couple times and always told myself to “get back to it”, but thanks for pointing them out again. Also, I just want to point out that those are some great magazine names!

@Jeremy: They really are great names and the covers are all very nice too!
