New website launched for Midnight Echo

A NEW website has been launched for horror magazine Midnight Echo.

The Australian Horror Writers Association’s official publication has been given its own site as part of a relaunch of the magazine.

Former AHWA president Marty Young has been appointed as the magazine’s executive editor.

The new website includes news, reviews, interviews and submission guidelines

A subscription drive has also been launched.

Print subscriptions are $20 a year (two issues) while PDF subscriptions are $3.85 a year.

AHWA members recieve a free PDF copy of each issue.

In good news for authors, the magazine has doubled its payment rates to 2c/word to $75.

Issue 6, a science-fiction horror special edited by David Conyers, David Kernot and Jason Fischer will be released in November.

It includes stories from Shane Jiraiya Cummings, Joanne Anderton and Alan Baxter.

Daniel I. Russell has been appointed guest editor of issue 7 which will cover the theme taboos.

“Be it sexual fetishes, dreams of violence, the sites you delete from your history, drug cravings and that… thing you like to do when you’re all alone,'' Russell said.

``We want the things you can’t discuss in polite conversation, the guilty, twisted needs that eat away at you.”
