Night to Dawn Magazine & Books LLC

Since Count Dracula’s legendary time, vampires have roamed the collective imagination of the world lurking in the dark corners of the mind, skulking in shadows, ready to sink their teeth into the warm flesh of unsuspecting necks. Night to Dawn seeks to breathe new life into vampires, zombies, mummies, vampires, and other undead night stalkers. Night to Dawn 38 caters to horror, dark fantasy, and dark science fiction aficionados. Aside from vampires, it features demons, zombies, and other mythical monsters. Night to Dawn 38 includes authors and artists like Marge Simon, Rod Marsden, Sandy DeLuca, Lee Clark Zumpe, Marc Shapiro, S. M. Bidwell, and many others.

By featuring upcoming artists and writers, we hope to bring new life to the world of the undead.

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?

    Can’t wait to read it!

  2. sounds like a fun one!

  3. 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.

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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.
