From the Editors
Welcome to our first issue of The Dread Machine. Although we’re a new publication, we were thrilled to receive so many impressive, entertaining, and thought-provoking submissions. This quarter’s issue features original fiction by Dennis Mombauer, Larina Warnock, Evan Marcroft, Kevin M. Folliard, and many more. We’ve also curated reprints from Ken Liu, Osahon Ize-Iyamu, Monique L. Desir, Michael Wehunt, Caleb Stephens, Lynette Mejia, and Kitty-Lydia Dye. One of our favorite poets, Avra Margariti, also has original work appearing in this issue.
On this page, you’ll find summaries and links to every Issue 1 story, along with information about some of our featured writers. If you’re a subscriber, you’ll be able to access everything here. If you’re not ready to commit to a subscription, consider purchasing the V 1.1 Access Pack, which also includes the issue’s cover art (created by the talented Katrina Bellikova, aka Ninja Jo) as downloadable desktop and phone backgrounds.
Thank you so much for your support!
