Cemetery Dance Publications has just announced that they will be releasing eBook editions of Cemetery Dance Magazine. To launch the new version of the magazine in style, they’ve gone back and produced eBook versions of issues 61 through 68. The issues are available from their website, Amazon, Barnes & Noble and iTunes.
What this means, is that if you missed it the first time around, or you just prefer eBooks, you can now pick up issue 66 of Cemetery Dance which includes my vampire story “The Vrykolakas and the Cobbler’s Wife” which was illustrated by Gak, an artist I worked with in the very early days of Hadrosaur Tales Magazine.
You can download the issue directly from the publisher at http://www.cemeterydance.com/page/CDP/PROD/e_cd066 or you pick it up at one of the eBook retailers mentioned above.
Set in Greece at the beginning of the twentieth century, “The Vrykolakas and the Cobler’s Wife” tells the story of a cobbler who was turned into a vrykolakas and then came back to haunt his family. If a person is attacked by a vrykolakas and survives, they become something like a werewolf. If they die, they become more like a vampire. The story blends elements of gas lamp fantasy with paranormal romance, and even has something of a fairy tale component.
This issue of Cemetery Dance also features stories by Steve Resnic Tem, Jeremy C. Shipp, and Bill Pronzini, plus a number of reviews, interviews and articles by folks such as Ellen Datlow, Bev Vincent, and Brian James Freeman.
