The fifth installment in the Folley and Mallory adventures by E. Catherine Tobler came this year, seeing our heroes dealing with a mystery that spans both time and space.
Here’s the whole series, grab one today!
We released four issues this year, with a fantastic lineup, with fiction from:
Gemma Files, Chet Williamson, Errick Nunnally, Melanie Rees, Lisa May Lu, Samantha Mills, Becca De La Rosa, Irene García Cabello, Pierce Skinner, Daniel Mallery, A.L. Kersel, Jamie Lackey, Margret A. Treiber, Cameron Suey, Robin van Eck, Shameika Moreland, T.M. Morgan, A. Martine, S.R. Mandel, M.C. Williams.
Fiona Maeve Geist brought four articles about lesser known, but influential writers.
The Volume 6 Annual was released in July, collecting all four issues, two of which were guest edited by Catherine Grant.
Get the Volume 6 Annual!
We had three episodes of the RadioPlay release in 2018. Inspired by the radio of the past, but built for modern ears, LampLight Radio Plays are audio adaptations of stories from LampLight Magazine.
Give a listen!
Of course we have more LampLight coming, a new episode of the RadioPlay right around the corner. A few classics lined up as well. The final Folley and Mallory adventure will be here.
And of course, some surprises to come!
Hi everyone. We are going to delay LampLight Magazine spring submissions to 15 April (and extend through June!)
This will let us finish catching up on some things before Volume 7 starts.
In the meantime, we are having a subscription drive! Your support is what keeps LampLight going. Subscriptions support both the magazine and the podcast, and bring to you four great issues of LampLight magazine which can be sent directly to your Kindle if you like!
I had known Kevin Lucia for about ten minutes when I approached him about doing the first serial for LampLight.
We had met at Necon in 2011, and saw each other again at Horrorfind Weekend. It was June of 2012 when I sent an awkward email that I had re-written about fifteen times. I was making a magazine, it was going to be quiet horror, would he be interested in doing a serial novella to span the first volume.
Kevin said yes, saying he had a piece he had in mind that would be a great fit. And thus, And I Watered It With Tears (later to be republished as Drowned) came to find its home in LampLight. The characters and locations in Tears are woven into his Clifton Heights saga, which I cannot recommend enough.
Tears helped set the tone of LampLight and we would later make our first Radio Play based off this novella.
We had two more serial novellas, The Devoted by James A Moore, and Wilted Lilies by Kelli Owen. All three are fantastic.
In the end, quarterly release is too long in-between installments for a serial. We haven’t given up the idea, though–I think serials are a great means for story telling.
Kevin would return to LampLight for volume 4 & 5 with his Horror 101 series, taking us on a tour of the genre, past and present.
June is birthday month here at Apokrupha. And this year is a milestone. June 2017 marks 5 years of publishing, and we’ve got quite a few things to celebrate. A new issue with a great line up; a new steampunk book; a new Radio Play episode; space dragons…
To mark the occasion, we are re-releasing all of volume 1 of LampLight. These first four issues of LampLight are where it all started.
AND. Get all four of them, thats 130,000 words of short fiction, interviews, a full novella by Kevin Lucia and the fantastic Shadows in the Attic series by J.F. Gonzalez… for just $5.
All of the funds from these purchases are going straight to us, no cut from Amazon or Kickstarter. All of these funds are going right back into LampLight magazine to pay writers and editors in our community. Subscriptions support both the magazine and the podcast.
