It occurred to me that in this new age of digital marketing and online sales that one of the most basic elements to a magazine was going to be missed: flipping through a copy on the newsstand.
So here is a taste, if you will, of what you can find in LampLight. Our first issue, which is free, presented here as it would be in print This is the actual layout file used for our print edition (minus this note, of course), allowing you an idea of what you’ll get in the paper copies
I hope you’ll enjoy this issue, and check out more of them. We’ve had Mercedes Yardley, Mary SanGiovanni, Kealan Patrick Burke, Normal Prentiss and more, all featured in LampLight.
Thank you for reading LampLight Magazine.

John Boden of Shock Totem reviews the first annual of LampLight. He says:
“Overall, Lamplight is a great publication with a fine eye for dark fiction. A comrade more than competition. In this business, we need more of the former and less of the latter. We’re all on the same ship, in the same choppy waters, and I would gladly share a lifeboat with Lamplight. Give them a shot.”

Wieland, or The Transformation, was written by Charles Brocken Brown (January 17, 1771 – February 22, 1810). First published in 1798, it is considered the first Gothic novel written by an American author.
Brought to America after the French and Indian war with their family, Clara Wieland and her brother Theodore are the children of a German immigrant. When their father dies in a mysterious manner, the children divide his property between the two of them. Clara’s letters detail the dark events that follow.
