From the people at LORE:
September 28, 2011
Lancaster just got a little scarier this Halloween season.
The scariest time of year is nearly upon us, making it the perfect time for Lancaster resident Rod Heather to release the first issue of his horror magazine, LORE.
Rod is an award-winning editor of spooky story collections, and is a published horror author in his own right.
The first offering, titled “LORE: A Quaint and Curious Volume of Selected Stories”, will become available just in time for Halloween, and will feature stories by internationally renowned authors like Harlan Ellison (another LA County resident), and Brian Lumley.
LORE will be available electronically, and as a print edition, and is considered a professional market by the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America, and Horror Writers Association.
In addition to more information on how to order or submit work to LORE, the publication’s web site (http://www.lore-online.com) offers a host of regular horror, science fiction and fantasy features that are sure to raise the hackles of even the most seasoned ghoul.
