Remember the Oldies But Goodies poster? I took it down and replaced it with a catalogue page of former Night to Dawn issues that are still available and where you can find them, plus a summary of each issue. Here is a listing of prior Night to Dawn Magazine issues. Most of them are available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other retailers. Issues 14 through 24 are available at Lulu Books. Happy reading! 🙂
Monsters under the bed exist. If you didn’t think so before, you will after reading Night to Dawn 32, in particular, Kempka’s “Night Sounds.” Balloons have crept into the stories via my flash piece, “Unseen Hands.” As for clowns, whom we associate with balloons, you’ll find plenty in Manzolillo’s “Lip of the Stars.” These clowns may appear friendly but aren’t…quite. Find out what happens when a soldier goes astray in Kolacki’s “Log of Zombies Dispatched.” Illustrations by Marge Simon, Sandy DeLuca, Elizabeth Pierce, Chris Friend, Teresa Tunaley, Denny E. Marshall, and Ron Weems. Available at;
Some of NTD 31’s stories feature the zombie’s point of view. These monsters spend more time being harried rather than attacking humans, for example, Allan Heller’s “Cabin.” Get ready for some sleepless nights with “Blood Moon,” when a grieving woman calls her dead beloved back to life. You’ll find plenty of horror and zombie fiction/poetry, along with cover illustrations by Sandy DeLuca, Marge Simon, Teresa Tunaley, Denny Marshall, and other great artists.
NTD 30 comes with a fine recipe of zombies, demons, and vampires. For starters, Harold Kempka teaches us to watch where we go when we travel. His characters failed to pay attention and they paid for their mistake by becoming “First Communion.” Other tales bring a new twist to horror, including one woman who turns into jellyfish that carries a deadly venom.
LNTD 29 brings a unique take on the vampire theme; only now, I’ve brought mummies and zombies into the equation. Thomas Canfield can take credit for the mummy tale, “Skin Deep;” Margaret L. Carter has ushered fresh life to an ancient theme with “Raised from the Ashes.” Edward Ahern’s “The Foundling” adds his take on vampires with an infant who will grow and feed on humans. Landrum’s “The Mentor from the Dead” provides a school for the unspeakable. NTD 29 also features work by Rod Marsden, Chris Friend, Elizabeth Pierce, James Park, Todd Hanks, Marge Simon, Sandy DeLuca, Christopher Hivner, Allan Heller, Rajeev Bhargava, and other talented contributors.
Night to Dawn 28 features a concoction of zombies, ghosts, vampires, and other…beings. For starters, Allan Heller’s tale, “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 poetry will haunt you long after you close the book, for the dead travel fast.
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.
Featuring the conclusion to Ken Goldman’s “The Devil, You Say” along with zombie tales, butterfly vampire, and a musician’s look at the Zombie Apocalypse. Poetry, art, and fiction by Marge Simon, Sandy DeLuca, Todd Hanks, Rod Marsden, Marc Shapiro, David Transue, Francis Alexander…and others!
Night to Dawn 25 offers vintage tales – mostly vampire, but you won’t find any mundane themes. A Good Samaritan deed turns bloody when the person being rescued gets hungry. Another vampire who gets deathly ill on the blood he desperately needs. The Grim Reaper comes back as a beautiful woman. An Alzheimer’s patient seeks relief but chooses the wrong “doctor,” and his methods are more brutal than she expected. A vampire heads for Alaska during the winter because of the short days. Ken Goldman entertains us with “The Devil You Say.”
