MIDNIGHT ECHO 16 Table of Contents Announced

The newest edition of Midnight Echo is set to be a bloody cracker, with all writers and stories for volume #16 now decided. Some of Australasia’s best horror authors will be featured.

The submissions, as always, were of outstanding quality, making guest editor Tim Hawken’s job especially difficult. 

“I was seriously blown away by how much talent we have in our horror community in the region,” said Hawken. “It was a real honour to be able to get a first look at a lot of these pieces and be horrified, thrilled, and entertained in equal measure. With limited space in the magazine, it was a tough job picking the very best. I was looking for punchy stories that gave me a physical reaction and lingered with me after reading. There were also some incredibly moving (and often hilarious) poems, plus intelligent non-fiction that gives amazing insight into the workings of the genre too. I’m really excited to share these now with the outside world and look forward to Midnight Echo 16 going to print!”

The magazine is due to be released in early December, just in time for a Black Christmas. There are gut-wrenching stories, psychological mind worms, and a whole lot of Australasian culture woven in too.
