DarkEcho Newsletter

Subscription information below

Once upon a time, the DarkEcho newsletter was an electronically mailed gathering of market, genre, online, and publishing news as well as reviews and information for horror writers and avid fans of dark fiction. It was published weekly, and emailed free to subscribers all over the world. It often provided the earliest notice of a new market or other horror news. It become indispensable reading every Thursday for horrorists. Honored by the World Fantasy Convention with a nomination for non-professional contribution to the field (the first electronic writing ever considered for such an award) in 1997, DarkEcho was the recepient of the International Horror Guild Award for 1999 and was awarded the Horror Writers Association's Bram Stoker Award for horror nonfiction in both 1999 and 2000. Some of the material first published there is now on this site.

After six years it was time for a change. in January 2001 there was an attempt to go monthly, but it was not to be. Starting in March 2001 it morphed into Daughter of DarkEcho -- an even more personal, really quirky publication written from one person's point of view; "just some stuff" emailed whenever the chance appeared. Over the course of 16 months, about 10 issue appeared.

In July 2002, it changed again. The publication was re-named DarkEcho and this time it appears to be taking on a highly opinionated tone. Still not regularly scheduled, it will appear when it appears. Will DarkEcho remain in this incarnation? Who knows?

DarkEcho was never meant to be an unchanging institution. It was, if anything, anti-institutional. It never had a planned direction or a pre-determined end goal. Anyone is, as always, welcome to come aboard for the ride.

We're changing the way the list is delivered so, for now, just email with a request to subscribe. We'll take it from there!
