Dark Wisdom Magazine

April 8, 2008 by Richard Wright in Journal, Writing

Bugger, a sale flies south. I was expecting to see a short story of mine appear in a future issue of Dark Wisdom magazine in the US (a sale I was very pleased with indeed), but the publication has folded (the company is reorganising, with the magazine being reinvented as a series of anthologies, and an online zine). This is great shame on lots of levels, including the simple fact that the mag was a great read.

It’s not quite doom and gloom for the story though, as the publishers are deciding whether or not it would be a fit for the books / website. I’ll keep you posted. It’s not the first time this has happened to stories of mine (and most writers who have been at it a while have plenty of similar experiences). In fact, last time it did was when I co-wrote ‘Grave Song’ with Brian A. Hopkins for a magazine called The Cooperative, which unfortunately closed before the first issue went to press. The story went on to sell to John Pelan’s The Darker Side anthology, published in mass market paperback by ROC publishing, and winner of the Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in an anthology, so you never know what’s round the corner…
