Grimdark Magazine Issue #33 is here!

Last Updated on January 23, 2023

Is it that time of the quarter again? Sure is! Grimdark Magazine Issue #33 is here. Beth Tabler has pulled together another amazing list of contributors and based on our Patreon Subscribers’ early reviews over on Goodreads, she’s absolutely nailed it once again. Let’s get stuck into what GdM fans will be getting their teeth into this quarter.

Cover for GdM#33 by Carlos Diaz

Once again our wonderful cover artist Carloz Diaz has absolutely nailed it. This quarter, the cover is based upon Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan’s story Bargaining. Make sure you give Carlos’ Insta a follow to see more of what he’s putting out there.

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.
