Hey, writers, a market that needs you!

Submissions are invited for a new magazine of horror and related genre
stories called FUSING HORIZONS: DARK FICTION FOR IMAGINATIVE READERS.

Issue one is scheduled for December 2003, and among the features will be:

* an interview with Michael Marshall Smith
* a reprint of a rare Ramsey Campbell tale
* much new fiction
* colour cover
* original artwork
* FUSING ATOMS - ten tiny tales of terror!

Please check out the website for details and guidelines:

http://www.angelfire.com/zine2/garyfry/Fusing_Horizons.html

Subscriptions or single-copy orders are of course welcome. The more we sell,
the greater chance this has of becoming a permenant market in our slim
field!

At only 2-65 a copy, 9-99 for a annual subscription, how can you refuse?

Best -

Gary Fry
Editor, FUSING HORIZONS
Author of 'Both And', GATHERING THE BONES, eds. Ramsey Campbell, Jack Dann and Dennis Etchison, HarperCollins/TOR, August 2003

Sounds good, though I can't say I care for the name. Or Angelfire.com.

angelfire is a stop-gap. Hope to have a better set up ere long.

Fusing horizons is a term from hermeneutics, about the reading process: the reader is as crucial as the writer.

Gary,
I hope you'll get me a copy of the magazine, when it's ready for YBFH #17.

Fused Horizons would sound better, IMHO, but this from the guy whose zine is called The Metastatic Whatnot. =P

And thank god for that! Angelfire is, well, let's just say "ironically named" and leave it at that.

Yeah, well, I was in a rush re: angelfire.

As for the mag title, well, Fused is past, Fusing is happening!

Just been thinking about this... I see tons of web zines promoting "dark fiction" or "dark fantasy" or what-have-you.

What is the opposite of dark? Cause it isn't really light, in this usage.

That's a very structuralist - and therefore outmoded - perspective, Bluejack. Do all words have to derive their meaning from others? Dark is dark: it's about the declining body, about difficult relations, about the human condition. Dark has a teological arrow pointing at death and all the troubles that separate us from that.

Bluejack,
I think using the word "dark" in a title is pretty obvious. Dark vs light fiction. Dark fantasy tending toward horror vs light fantasy.

Anyone who reads horror and dark fantasy and literature with a dark tinge knows exactly what the terminology means in the context of a magazine.

My definition is dark is up on the website in the form of the list of model stories I've included. If I wanted to show an alien what a dog is, I wouldn't describe it; I'd show the green multi-headed being from outer space a...dog.

Bluejack, I think Gary just called you a green multi-headed being. Not that I'm trying to start a fight or anything...:P

Are these puns a preview of the quality of writing we can expect in your editorials Gary?

Oh, hang loose. Pour yourself a coke and munch some fries. When I get to writing some stuff for issue one, then I'll cut my ear off.
