Needle Magazine Summer Issue

The summer issue of Needle Magazine is out and I feel like an honorary editor because several of the writers who contributed are in the Autumn issue of Dark Valentine.

Nigel Bird has a piece of flash up at Dark Valentine right now--"For the Love of God." If you haven't read it yet, for God's sake click on the link. It won't take you but a minute to read it. His story in the Autumn issue of DV was inspired by a photograph friend of Dark Valentine Cormac Brown posted on his site.

Allen Leverone's story in Dark Valentine is called "Dance Hall Drug" and it's a nasty piece of work. (I mean that in a good way.) You'll want to read it as soon as it's available, which will be Friday, September 3rd.

Shout-out to David Cranmer too. He hasn't submitted to Dark Valentine yet but I'm sure that's just an oversight!

It is such a pleasure reading the well-crafted stories in Needle. I want to steal all of their writers.


  1. I had planned on your debut issue but didn't feel my tale was dark enough. No oversight but I am very, very slow. :)

  2. It will be worth the wait...deadline for submissions to the Winter issue is first of November.
