Vaccines may have conquered corona for us, but the characters in Night to Dawn 40 face a different ending. In particular, Lee Clark Zumpe’s “Worm-sacks and Dirt-backs.” The story opens with a maze of dead, shambling people crowding a hospital, seeking relief from their pain. Zumpe’s other three stories have grim endings and themes, too. Ken Goldman’s “Young Girls Are Coming to Ajo” starts with an ordinary situation and twists its way to horror, with a vampire using a small lizard to do her bloodletting. Gerald Browning’s “Giggling in the Dark” also has a grim theme, with the dead laughing as they feed on a human. Poetry and illustrations by Marge Simon, Sandy DeLuca, Denny E. Marshall, Richard H. Fay, and other contributors.
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 bloodlust 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 Todd Hanks, Lee Clarke Zumpe, and other authors that will appeal to your spine! And if you’re in the market for a good book, you might want to check out Tom Johnson’s reviews, always listed in the magazine.

Rod Marsden’s 50 Dragons: Peace meant sacrifice, and Dreadnought had already sacrificed so much of himself. He was scarred from battle and felt numb from his pain as well as that of others. Then one day, Dreadnought came to stare into the eyes of the statue of King Kamehameha and drew strength from it. Other knights would note this and also draw what they could from the statue of a long-dead Hawaiian warrior. Amelia understood the angst Dreadnought felt as he got closer to his life goal. Would the High Ones allow his final victory and, if they did, what would then happen to him and his love Amelia?

Meanwhile, somewhere not far from mainland Tasmania, there is an island named Green Maiden’s Folly. What’s it like?

Margaret L. Carter’s Doctor Vampire: At the age of forty, psychiatrist Roger Darvell discovered vampires are real, a nonhuman species living secretly among the ordinary mortals who vastly outnumber them, and he himself is a hybrid, with a vampire mother and a human father. After learning the truth about the craving for blood that had plagued him all his adult life, he came to terms with his “monstrous” side and found love with his human professional partner, Dr. Britt Loren. In between treating their mundane patients, Roger and Britt occasionally venture into problems of the paranormal. They deal with three extraordinary cases in these stories, as they counsel a neurotic young vampire, a guilt-ridden werewolf, and a woman who owns a haunted antique desk.
Lyn McConchie’s Some Other Traveller: When the world’s civilizations collapse from a lethal pandemic, being old can mean you have the experience and wisdom to survive and to see that friends and family do as well. Donal and Sheila McArn are seventy when most of the world is dying, and they must hold the line for everything they know. They may not have long, but so long as they live, they’re going to do their best – and anyone against them had better step back. NOW!
