The folks over at Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing are known for taking daring leaps and, as a result, publishing some great books. Of the things I’ve read by them, not one is like anything I’ve ever read. I mean that in the best of ways. They’re willing to take risks and publish material that a publisher with smaller testicles would shy away from and everything they publish pushes the envelope of literary spec/horror fiction.
But enough about them. I want to talk about this periodical that they publish, well, periodically. I stole a copy of DARK MOON DIGEST #22 while Max Booth III was sleeping off a drunk, and I’m not ashamed. There are some fucking great stories in this thing by John Foster, Benoit Lelievre, Patrick Lacey, and a whole passel of others. There’s also a great essay by Jay Wilburn and an excerpt from Vincenzo Bilof’s THE VIOLATORS that you probably shouldn’t read unless you’re really fucking twisted (self plug: got a review of that book coming in February).
For $2.99 you’re basically getting a 120 page anthology of fiction and non-fiction from some of the best authors in the business. If you aren’t reading DARK MOON DIGEST, you should be. Click that link below and go check it out.
