You unlock this door with the key of imagination.
Beyond it is another dimension: a dimension of sound,
a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind.

Author guest editors chose these Horror and Dark Fantasy stories for their strong characters and thought-provoking plots. Each story received two or more rounds of line edits, and the authors worked with veteran storyteller Angel Leigh McCoy to bring their tale to the highest levels of quality and tension.

Initially intended to be an ongoing magazine that was the evolution of, an online audio fiction site where we’ve published more than 70 genre-fiction short stories over the years. We changed direction when crowdfunding via Kickstarter for the magazine failed us and we realized no one wanted another Horror magazine. We had already purchased many of these dark stories for the first three issues of the magazine, so we collected them into a thick and meaty one-time anthology instead.

Tony Albarella, Rod Serling historian and expert, provided the introduction. We solicited non-fiction articles and reviews to further our tribute to Rod Serling and his style of character-centric, thought-provoking fiction. Our non-fiction authors include subject-matter experts David Afsharirad and S.T. Joshi who gave us essays on George Clayton Smith and Rod Serling’s work, respectively.
