Horror News and Commentary Shuts Off the Juice

There is dark news to report from the world of small-press fiction distribution. Online book and magazine seller—which is really just a one-man show consisting of Matt Schwartz—has announced that it is closing its doors after several years of bringing some of the best magazines, chapbooks, anthologies and books to readers of dark fiction.

This is bad for at least three distinct sets of people: readers, writers and publishers. Shocklines isn't the only game in town, but Matt has managed to maintain an impressive inventory that not many other outlets can live up to at present. His influence and enthusiasm is bound to be missed throughout the small press.

Click here to read, in Matt's own words, why the time has come to pull the plug on Shocklines and learn about his new post in the large-press universe of Simon & Schuster. We have no doubt that he will continue to advocate for the macabre wherever he is.--Pete Mesling
