Grimdark Magazine Issue #32 is here, featuring Polansky, Reid, Bacigalupi, and Dalglish

Last Updated on November 26, 2022

After a two month run-in with the Kindle publishing team, we are finally LIVE! I’ve just been dying to get this out to you. It’s Beth Tabler’s first issue in complete control of Grimdark Magazine’s quarterly publication, and she has completely smashed this issue. I can’t wait for you to read it!

GdM #32 cover reveal

Based on Daniel Polansky’s Sticks and Stones Carlos Diaz has absolutely fucking smoked this cover! For Beth’s first issue, it probably has one of my favourite covers we’ve published.

Adrian Collins runs Grimdark Magazine and loves anything to do with telling darker stories. Doesn't matter the format, or when it was published or produced--just give him a grim story told in a dark world by a morally grey protagonist and this bloke's in his happy place. Add in a barrel aged stout to sip on after a cheeky body surf under the Australian sun, and that's his heaven.
