ISSUE 40

This fortieth issue of Tales from the Canyons of the Damned consists of four sharp, suspenseful, thought provoking short stories—each from a different featured master of speculative fiction.

The Bloody Bridge by Steve Oden
Gibberlings by Charles Barouch
Under Denver by Hunter C. Eden
True Millennial by 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.

Now on Audible!
