New Book from a Critter Member

**NOW IN PRINT EDITION TOO!** Awesome new book, HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR SPECULATIVE FICTION OPENINGS, from a Critter member whose unearthed a shard of The Secret to becoming a pro writer. Really good piece of work. "...if you're at all concerned about story openings, you'd be nuts not to read what Qualkinbush has to say." —Wil McCarthy, author of BLOOM and THE COLLAPSIUM

The Sigil Trilogy

If you're looking for an amazing, WOW! science fiction story, check out THE SIGIL TRILOGY. This is — literally — one of the best science fiction novels I've ever read.


I was interviewed live on public radio for Critters' birthday, for those who want to listen.

I love reading this magazine.

Things actually happen in the stories in this magazine, and there are real stories with a beginning, middle and end, and not a bunch of stupid useless talking that has nothing to do with anything.

Best ever

Imagine a horror magazine with zero tolerance of violence. The Horrorzine makes that formula work with every issue.

Always entertaining and intriguing stories.

This zine is consistently varied and excellent. Jeani Rector is the editor and she is generous with helpful comments and a true curator of excellence.

The Horror Zine is consistently excellent and has been for many years. It's always top notch.

This magazine is so well-done. The stories are scarily satisfying and writing is top-notch. Excellent reads every issue.
