Terror House Magazine is Blowing Up

Three weeks after the launch of my new site Terror House Magazinewe’re doing far better than even my most optimistic projections. Traffic is so high that we’re now outpacing literary magazines that have been around for decades, and we’re getting so many quality submissions that we can now post a new one every day. The site is growing so fast that I’ve had to start drawing up a business plan for investors, since working on Terror House is starting to cut into what I do for a living. (If you’re interested in supporting Terror House Press, our planned book publishing arm, click here to donate to us or email me here for more information.)

If you’re not following Terror House Magazine, now’s a perfect time to start. Visit the site here, follow us on Twitter here, and subscribe to our YouTube channel here.

If you have work you’d like us to publish, click here to submit it. Here’s a selection of some of our best submissions over the past three weeks:

  1. Standing Arrow Straight“: A short story by Brian Eckert about a man who woke up one day with an erection he could not get rid of.
  2. The Revival at Sulphur Well“: A short story by Jay Dyer intended as an homage to Flannery O’Connor and other Southern Gothic writers.
  3. Heineken is for Pussies: A Review of Skinless’ Savagery“: An analysis and review by Slamz focusing on metal band Skinless’ latest album.
  4. Fifty Shades of Meds: A Review of The Pisces by Melissa Broder“: Sean Kilpatrick savages Broder’s latest novel, a poorly-written feminist fantasy about a middle-aged woman who has sex with a merman.
  5. Letters from a Heartbroken Pervert: ‘Remembering’ and ‘Normal’“: Nameless Writer discusses the joys of throat-fucking his girlfriend.
  6. Body and Soul“: A short story from Vincent Barry discussing death, guilt, and sex in a Catholic school.
  7. ‘Screaming for Ice Cream,’ ‘Walk Like a Jain,’ and ‘Neptune Opposite Moon’”: Three poems from Leah Mueller on sexual desperation, animal abuse, and failure.
  8. Fear of an Incel Planet: How Michel Houellebecq’s Whatever Predicted Our Sexual Dystopia“: My analysis of Michel Houellebecq’s first novel, a dirge on anomie, social isolation, and involuntary celibacy.
  9. Letters from a Heartbroken Pervert: Impossible But Desired“: Nameless Writer discusses sexual fantasies of his that will never come to pass.
  10. Waiting“: A short story by Thomas J. Torrington about a bitter misanthrope trapped in a waiting room.

Due to my commitments for Terror House Magazine, my energies will be focused there for the foreseeable future, though I will still keep this site updated with new articles and videos whenever I can. I view Terror House Magazine (and Terror House Press) as the culmination of everything I have worked for in the nearly ten years that I’ve been writing online. Thanks for reading and enjoying my work all these years.
