Please explore Night to Dawn with the understanding that holy objects and garlic may not protect you, for the NTD vampire is no ordinary species. You might meet the blood drinker of yore, or a walking skeleton, or even a human vampire. Then there are the psychic vampires. Recently, NTD has been featuring werewolves and other monsters but always with the blood lust theme. Our goal is to showcase the work of writers who share a passion for the horror genre. By featuring upcoming artists and writers, we hope to bring new life to the world of the undead. NIGHT TO DAWN will offer tales written by Tom Johnson, Lee Clarke Zumpe, and other authors that will appeal to your SPINE!!

Elizabeth Pierce-Collins, the artist appearing in the latest issue of Night To Dawn, has agreed to sell her artwork for those visitors of bloodredshadow.com that are interested!  Kindly contact her directly at 475 Chorro Creek Road, Morro Bay, Ca. 93442  for more information.

Night to Dawn 27 will bring more zombie lore, plus work from two members of the Pennsylvania Bucks County Writers’ Group; also work by Marge Simon, Derek Muk, Rajeev Bhargava, Lee Clark Zumpe, Todd Hanks, Rod Marsden, Sandy DeLuca, Denny Marshall, and other contributors who specialize in horror / science fiction.

COMING SOON!

NTD28frontcoverwhiteNameswebsite

Night to Dawn 28 features a concoction of zombies, ghosts, vampires, and other…beings. Along with Marge Simon, Rod Marsden and Hal Kempka, Allan Heller’s “Clutch in the Crypt” includes a werewolf, a vampire and a zombie. Other zombie tales include Katie Tillwick’s “Paperwork,” which shows what can happen when bureaucracy gets in the way of fighting the dead. McQuiston’s “Night’s Embrace” portrays love between two zombies, but woe betide the humans that get in their way. Ken Goldman’s “Snow Angel” features an elderly man reciting a story to his grandchild, whom we learn isn’t human—quite. All of these tales and many more will haunt you long after you close the book, for the dead travel fast.

The Sanguinarian Id by L. M. Labat: Within Europe’s late nineteenth century, marvelous medical miracles came into existence that augmented the intellectual to new horizons. Doctors of all fields were admired for their dedication to health and humanity. However, as their accolades increased, these professionals grew fat with entitlement while their patients starved for love. With speedy developments, the human brain, in its entire splendor, spiraled dangerously into the new era of indulgences that forked the path between masterpiece and monstrosity.

  1. Night to Dawn 26 – Of the poems I liked Marc Shapiro’s Bad Food the best. Great imagery. In terms of art, nice take on the four horsemen by Denny Marshall on page 58. The short story Thunder Bay by Robin Wyatt Dunn I found rich in macabre symbolism. Glad to be part of this issue.

  2. Night to Dawn 24 Oct. 2013. Thanks for your inclusion of Brother, Can You Spare Some Blood? Hopefully it will go down well with readers. Strangely enough, it was my shot at a warped out vamp love story.

    The nastiest and therefore the best poem was Hanks’ Vampire Winter. Since I’m just getting out of winter I can relate. Spring hasn’t quite sprung in Sydney, Australia.

    The Infernal Buddha sounds pretty good. I haven’t read a Doc Savage novel in some time.

    Nice portrait of Poe on page 49 by Denny Marshall.

    The Steel Rose teaser was a good idea.

    Art work by Denny Marshall on page 77 is kinda freaked out but ultimately an interesting take on the vampire as demon or the demon with vampire tendencies.

  3. i noticed that Lee Clark Zumpe and Denny E. Marshall were each credited twice on the cover of #20? is this on purpose?

    • No, it was an oversight. That said, I think highly of Lee and Denny’s work. I’ve been blessed with great writers and illustrators.
