Just in time for the spooky season, I have a short story titled “The Halloween Party” about to be published in New Zenith Magazine
“New Zenith Magazine is a quarterly short fiction, poetry, and visual art magazine. Within its pages you will find short stories of all genres, flash fiction, mesmerizing poetry, hilarious cartoons/comics, photography, illustrations, inspiring author interviews, articles on the topic of writing, provocative writing prompts and more. This page-turning magazine will delight your senses, and incite your curiosity. There is truly something for everyone inside the pages of this eclectic journal.” I’m delighted to have been chosen to be among New Zenith’s featured authors.
“The Halloween Party” features a veritable cornucopia of rum and uncanny characters such as The Gobdjeofel, Morrogolloro, The Bloody Lobaghast, Granddaddy Strawbones, Jo-Jo Le Snatch, The Skenny-Grobbler, Lulu Gongo, Baa-Baa-Dead-Sheep, Black-and-Blue Jenny, Abu-Mambu-Babu, The Ladyjack, Gog-Gog, Old Mother Shatter and Yasakaluka the Sucking Devil.
I won’t give any spoilers but the story blends folklore, the belief in childhood bogeymen, dark humour, horror and the weirdly macabre.
Just what you need for a happy halloween….
The Autumn/Fall issue of New Zenith Magazine is due out very shortly & I’ll update as soon as it is avaliable.
