ISSUE 25

Exodus Sol—P.K. Tyler
Deep Throw 1—Terry R. Hill
Brethren—Kevin G. Summers
Off-World Kick Murder Squad V—Daniel Arthur Smith

Tales from the Canyons of the Damned (canyonsofthedamned.com) is a dark science fiction, horror, & slipstream magazine we've been working on since 2015. What is Dark Science Fiction and Horror? Think of it as a literary Twilight Zone, Night Gallery, or Outer Limits, it's Netflix's Black Mirror and Amazon's Electric Dreams in the short story format. And it's a bargain. Each monthly issue has three-to-five sharp, suspenseful, satirical tales from today's top speculative fiction writers.
These are Dark Sci Fi Slipstream Tales like you've never read before.
