Cemetery Dance Magazine Subscription
Cemetery Dance is the World Fantasy Award-winning magazine of horror, dark mystery, and suspense. Published one to four times a year, each issue is packed with 100 to 144 pages of short stories, articles, columns, interviews, news, and reviews!
Over the last twenty-five years we've published authors such as Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Clive Barker, Ray Bradbury, Peter Straub, Charles Beaumont, Graham Masterton, Richard Laymon, Bentley Little, Michael Slade, Douglas Clegg, Jack Ketchum, William F. Nolan, Joe R. Lansdale, Poppy Z. Brite, Ronald Kelly, Rick Hautala, and hundreds of others, including the best new writers in the genre.
Our stunning full-color covers are painted by the best artists in the business including Bernie Wrightson, Phil Parks, Alan M. Clark, Glenn Chadbourne, Chad Savage, Jill Bauman, Caniglia, Charles Lang, Stacy Drum, Allen Koszowski, and many other horror greats. And there's even more striking artwork inside the magazine, too!
Covering the entire horror field for more than twenty years now, Cemetery Dance is a terrific value for the $9.95 cover price. The biggest names in the genre are already working on brand new fiction for the next few issues, plus we've lined up great interviews and other cool exclusives you won't read anywhere else.
In addition to the great short stories and insightful interviews in every issue, there is also a great mix of regular columns. These include:
• "News from the Dead Zone" is the only regularly-published feature column devoted to Stephen King, and it only appears in Cemetery Dance magazine. This column features exclusive insider information on all Stephen King news -- past, present and future! If you loved the old Castle Rock newsletter, you'll love Cemetery Dance! Cemetery Dance readers were the first to see a photo of Stephen King, Tom Hanks, and Frank Darabont, all together on the movie set of The Green Mile (issue #30)! And they were some of the few to see an exclusive sneak-peek photo essay of King's office and read an exclusive interview with his office staff (issue #31)! King himself was interviewed in our special 50th issue, too!
• Thomas F. Monteleone's classic "M.A.F.I.A." column is the most irreverent, entertaining, and longest-running column in the history of horror and dark fantasy, dealing with all things publishing. Monteleone writes about breaking in, breaking out, being successful, and being a failure—all in his inimitable, "tell it like it is" style.
• Don D'Auria has been a professional book editor for many years now. Find out how a publisher chooses manuscripts, and works with both established and upcoming genre authors, as D'Auria shares his "Editorial Perspectives" with Cemetery Dance readers, giving them "A View from the Other Side of the Desk."
• To say that Ellen Datlow has read a lot of books and stories would be an understatement. For more than twenty years she edited the horror half of St. Martin's essential Year's Best Fantasy and Horror, and edited numerous original anthologies including Inferno, which recently won theIHG award and World Fantasy Award. Now, in the pages of Cemetery Dance, you'll find out what Datlow thinks about "The Last 10 Books I've Read."
• Ed Gorman's popular "Gormania" column ran for many years in Cemetery Dance, starting with Issue 6 (Fall 1990). This multi-genre author returns to the magazine to explore the "Fine Points." Whether he's writing about horror, mystery, or suspense, you can be sure Gorman's observations will be sharp and insightful.
• "MediaDrone" by Michael Marano offers the kind of movie criticism you won't find in your local newspaper or Entertainment Weekly. Since Issue 35 of Cemetery Dance, he's offered perceptive, serious reviews of genre movies — praising films that mainstream critics pretend to loathe, or annihilating the latest bloated Hollywood blockbuster.
• Bob Morrish has been shining a "Spotlight on Publishing" since way back in Issue #8 (Spring 1991). There have been a lot of changes in the publishing world over the years, both in theNew York publishing houses and in the small press, and Morrish will continue to interview key players in genre publishing to keep readers abreast of the latest developments and trends.
• Some people think the drive-in movie theater is a thing of the past, but Mark Sieber's "Horror Drive-In" has been one of the Internet's best-kept secrets since early 2006. Sieber combines nostalgia for the old days of drive-ins and Famous Monsters of Filmland, with a passion for today's independent films and small press fiction. His column explores the state of the genre, from a true fan's perspective.
All this and much, much more... and only in Cemetery Dance!

A Note About Renewing Your Subscription:
If you want to renew your subscription, just place an order through this page and our system will automatically add the appropriate number of issues to the end of your current subscription, even if you have multiple issues left on the subscription.
A Note About Our Schedule:
As noted above, we publish between one and four issues per year. There isn't a set schedule because we work on the magazine when we have time around the book line. That's why we don't sell "yearly" subscriptions. If you order a 6 issue subscription, you will get the next six issues we publish, no matter what the schedule. Thank you for your support!
