Now into its second issue, GROTESQUE QUARTERLY is a combination of vintage, public domain horror stories, new horror fiction, poetry, punk, death metal, and rockabilly music reviews, art, and true ghost stories. Ordering info is HERE.

From the Editor
Grotesque Magazine is a quarterly publication for all things horror. The gory, the scary, the psychologically thrilling, and the supernatural can all find their homes here. Our magazine features contemporary and classic horror stories from both established and up-and-coming authors. From literary fiction to splatter-punk; flash fiction to poetry, Grotesque Magazine thirsts for it as long as it contains some aspect of horror. Beyond the strange horizons of horror fiction, Grotesque Magazine showcases nonfiction articles and reviews on Psychobilly, Death Metal, and Horror-punk music, as well as horror and horror-comedy movies and television shows. We’re also known to unearth the occasional gruesome drink or food recipes and enjoy art and comics in the horror genre. In our Obituary section we let readers tell us their ghost stories.

Grotesque Quarterly is a professional horror magazine with a vivid design and digital or print edition. The magazine seems to have a minimal website. It is well designed, but they have not posted much.

In order to enjoy the magazine you have to purchase a digital copy starting at $2.99. The magazine seems worth it, but there are no sample pages.

The magazine is professionally done, with a good layout and good design. The issue is filled with horror stories and poetry. The magazine is still new, founded in 2017. It’s one we will keep out eye on in the future. It’s easily one of the best startup magazines of 2017.
