Michael Kelly has a regular newsletter he sends to subscribers with updates and gossip. Here’s his announcement on issue availability.
Hello Friends of Undertow Publications!
It’s a happy day – issue 6 of Weird Horror magazine is officially released. We’ve crammed 13 new stories of the strange and uncanny into this stellar issue, plus our usual non-fiction columns, and illustrations.
Weird Horror magazine is truly a labor of love. Our fiction has been selected for reprint in ‘Year’s Best’ anthologies and made the Locus and Nebula Recommended Reading Lists. It’s a struggle to publish a magazine, and like most independent publishers one never knows what the future holds. For now, though, I hope you enjoy the latest offerings.
As always, we have the issue available direct from us in eBook and print. It’s always best to purchase direct from us, but the issue is available widely at all the other online vendors in digital and print formats.
Our dear friends at Weightless Books have an exclusive 2-issue digital subscription. If you subscribe through them you get issues 6 (Spring) and 7 (Fall) at a discount.

Weird Horror is edited by Undertow head honcho Michael Kelly. Issues are 84 pages, priced at $15 in paperback and $7.99 in digital formats. The magazine is published twice per year; you can order all five issues directly from the Undertow website.
You can also help fund the magazine directly by sending them a tip. I sent them $35 earlier this month, and if you love short horror fiction the way I do, I hope you’ll consider sending them a few bucks too.
The line up for Weird Horror #7 has already been announced, and it’s a very impressive list. Check it out below.
