Update from GdM


Last Updated on March 30, 2017

After wrapping up our first year of Grimdark Magazine, we’re doing everything we can to kick the magazine into the next gear. Below are a few of the things currently being stirred in the pot.

Battle-off Entries Closed. Voters Wanted!

The entry window for the GdM Battle-off is now closed. With nearly 1,400 votes cast, now is the time to get in amongst the action, read some free fiction, discover some new authors, and rate their works!

Each piece takes only a few minutes to read, and voting takes a second per piece; perfect for your trip to work or an ad break.

Issue 5 Update

We just locked in our last piece for Issue #5! The issue is looking brilliant, with another cover from Jason Deem setting the mood and a story from Aliette de Bodard set in the world she built in The House of Shattered Wings. Keep an eye on the blog for pre-release and more content details!

The Grim Tidings Podcast

I had a chat with the blokes at the Grim Tidings Podcast a couple of weeks ago about grimdark (surprise!), the magazine, violence in grimdark, and the survivability of the genre.

The podcast, headed up by Rob and Phil, has been running for a few months and deals in all things grimdark. They’ve interviewed a range of authors including, most recently, R.A. Salvator. If you’re a fan of this magazine, then you’ll love this podcast.

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.
