There aren’t a lot of print horror magazines left, so I’m grateful we still have Cemetery Dance. It was founded by Richard Chizmar in 1988, while he was still in college, and it is still edited by him today. Cemetery Dance Publications began to publish books in 1992, and quickly outgrew the magazine, but CD Publications has continued to publish approximately two issues a year of the magazine for the past 27 years.
Issue #73 is cover-dated December 2015, and is currently for sale on the CD website (although the issue is listed as forthcoming.) It has new fiction from Gerard Houarner, Keith Minnion, Michael Wehunt, Nik Houser, and Amanda C. Davis. Here’s the complete contents.
