Very sad news today, as many may know on here, my partner, Dan Russell, is an editor over at Necrotic Tissue Magazine. Well, today, some very sad news was handed out to staff (via email), readers, and writers alike, on Stygian Publications blog. Necrotic Tissue is sadly closing. They are putting out one last issue, Issue #14, and that will be the very last issue to see print. It's quite sad to see the decline in small presses out there, especially in the horror industry, which I feel personally, has been hit pretty hard in the last 12 months. There have been so many small presses fold in recent years, and even larger places are having the same issues now. It's devastating to see the path these presses are going down, as well as distributors. I mean, look at what has happened with Leisure and Borders. It's a very sad time for writers, editors, publishers and distributors. I guess all we can do is give them as much support as possible to try and help keep the $ ticking over so they can ride the storm and just hope they are still standing when it passes. But as I said, very sad to see the doors close over at Necrotic Tissue Magazine. I've enjoyed reading each issue and was hoping to one day have an entire shelf (or more) full of their magazine, as they look great on our shelf here at home and have some brilliantly crafted stories within those amazing covers. R. Scott McCoy did an amazing job to provide such a top quality magazine every issue, and to 'always' be on time. Well done to him I say.
