Night to Dawn Magazine & Books LLC

featuring walking skeletons, zombies and a new twist on vampires

Night to Dawn 34 features a crew of skeletons to haunt your dreams. You’ll find plenty of bony villains from Rick McQuiston, Charles Gramlich, Linda Barrett, and other authors. You’ll find a new twist on vampires, plus work from Marge Simon, Ralph Horner, Allan M. Heller, Sandy DeLuca, David Lowell Transue, and many others!

Barnes & Noble … plus other retailers.

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.

    Can’t wait to read it!

  2. sounds like a fun one!

  3. Night to Dawn seems like a fun book!

  4. Oct. Frights Blog Hop: Thank you so much for offering such a generous giveaway. Both books are something I’d love.

    Mylar balloons: I think you have 27 balloons.

    Is there a way to subscribe to your blog so it goes to my email? My email address is: michelle_willms at yahoo dot com

    • We’ll see what the other folks guess. 🙂 That’s a great question about subscribing – I realized the blog doesn’t show any way to do that. I’ll try to fix that. Barbara of the Balloons.

  5. Your website design is so nice now and so much easier to navigate around x

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.
