I really like Shock Totem too. I've purchased every issue so far. My friend Damien has a story in the 7th issue, which comes out this week.
It's nice to hear about people still reading and enjoying short fiction!
I've read the first three already and loved every one of them. It's kind of re-vitalizing my enjoyment of reading, taking a break from all the giant, multi-volume tomes I've been plowing through. I think I'll just read through all of these and enjoy the brief glimpses into the bizarre that these writers are giving us.
From the Issue 7 Blurb:
The legendary William F. Nolan offers up “The Horror That Et My Pap—and Other Swamp Stuff,” a tale the likes of which you have never read before. S. Clayton Rhodes delivers “The Gates of Emile Plimpkin: The Gravedigger’s Legacy,” a novelette that veritably oozes horror borne of the 1800s. Damien Angelica Grintalis (formerly Damien Walters Grintalis) gives us the heartbreaking “Shall I Whisper to You of Moonlight, of Sorrow, of Pieces of Us?” And M. Bennardo supplies this issue’s creature-feature with “Thing In a Bag.”
Enjoy the creepshow.
