As we work on revamping the website, and our company as a whole, we only thought it would be fitting to throwback to our roots. WitchWorks Magazine Ltd. was born over a year and a half ago out of a small blog website titled A Slice of Horror (which was launched back in 2013). For almost four years we worked with independent film makers and studios to promote and review horror movies new and old.
Now, WitchWorks Magazine Ltd. is happy to announce that we are officially opening a review section on our website dedicated strictly to b-grade, low-budget, and grindhouse style movies from the 1960s up through today! If you've taken a moment to read our new About page or our new Submissions page you'll know that our main goal as a company is to create short, fast paced fiction inspired by these types of movies. It is only fitting that we review and discuss the movies that inspire us.
On our review page we will post new reviews of low-brow movies alongside re-posts of original reviews from our inactive sister site, A Slice of Horror. We hope our reviews help fans of obscure cinema find new movies to watch and enjoy. We hope, if you're a writer, these reviews will inspire you to create some cheesy b-grade stories of your own.
If you are a small indie or low-budget company, and you feel that your movie is a good fit for our review roster, please feel free to send us a query through our Contact page concerning reviewing your film
Hello horror fans and readers. It has been some time since our last official update. We've been working on rebooting and rethinking what WitchWorks Magazine Ltd. has to offer. Well, we are happy to announce that we have completed our new website layout, creating a more friendly and enjoyable experience for all readers alike.
Similarly, as we have mentioned before, we have forgone our usual magazine releases in favor of becoming a small indie publisher. Our new focus will be mainly on short story collections, novellas, and gaming supplements.
Please stay tuned as we make announcements about new releases.
WitchWorks Magazine is excited and proud to announce our FINAL release ever. WitchWorks Presents: Dark Love
That's correct. WitchWorks Magazine is officially closing its doors. We have had a long and enjoyable journey as a publishing company. Ultimately, this has always been a passion project for everyone involved.
None of us have ever made any money off the magazine. We have all enjoyed contributing to the magazine and thank all the artists and authors who have contributed as well.
However, at this time, I--as the editor-in-chief--can no longer commit the time and effort this project deserves.
As one final goodbye we are releasing the long promised, long awaited Dark Love special edition collection. This collection (previously titled Horror Sex Tales) brings six new authors of the macabre together.
This release is now available for FREE. Simply click the cover image to download and read your copy.
Additionally, all of our other issues and releases will be available to download for free and for purchase in print. Please enjoy all of these releases and thank you for your support over the last two years.
We are excited to announce the release of the fifth issue of WitchWorks Pulp Horror Magazine! In this issue you will find 9 new pulp horror stories and comics from 9 original authors and artists.
Additionally, this month's cover art is by the talented artist, Cesar Valtierra.
We are also excited to announce that this issue takes the magazine in a new direction. First, the print size has been changed to a smaller "digest" style trim.
Second, we've changed how we approach art in the magazine. Now, we are shooting for a more classic and minimalist style of art production that matches closely with the pulp magazines and pulp novels released during the 1940s and 50s.
We are excited for this new direction that the magazine is taking and feel that it stays true to the pulp style we strive so diligently to emulate. We hope you enjoy this newest issue and encourage you to share it with family and friends!
This issue can now be purchased in the following formats:
WitchWorks Magazine Ltd. is excited to announce that we are now also accepting story submissions in the genres of Sword and Sorcery and Dark Fantasy for inclusion in our quarterly issues of WitchWorks Magazine. Pulp fiction, especially pulp horror fiction, was often accompanied by, and went hand in hand with, the earliest renditions of the fantasy and adventure genres.
Robert E. Howard, creator of the infamous Conan the Barbarian, is considered by most literary critics to be the father of the Sword and Sorcery genre. He was also a master of the horror story and was frequently published alongside other masters of pulp fiction such as Edgar Rice Burroughs and--the king of pulp horror himself--H.P. Lovecraft.
The stories we are looking for should have a strong focus on the "Dark" side of Dark Fantasy. Including zombies, skeletons, witches, curses, hauntings, blood rituals, and more are all strongly encouraged.
Visit our Magazine Submissions page to learn how you can submit and become a part of the magazine today. Writing entries for WitchWorks Magazine is done on a volunteer basis and contributors are provided with an electronic copy of the issue they appear in.
We strongly believe in helping new, upcoming, and indie authors get a foot in the door of the publishing world so they can move on to work in paying markets. To learn more about our company goals visit our About page.
