I decided to get this (even created a Smashwords account) because I was following an author. I was also intrigued by the idea of a fresh magazine and am glad I bought a copy coz I was able tofind out about some new authors. Morano’s the other child did not disappoint. I like how she had broken an old children’s tale to the point that it was almost believable. I liked the ’voice’ and that it was fast-paced but very vivid. I also liked "We can all be Art" wow it was shortbut v creepy. Another story "Silence" was about people disappearing. It stuck with me,the concept was frightening. "To be Thirsty" was a great vampire story that played on human emotions. As usual,some stories were better than others but there’s a lot of good stuff here.. a good mix to suit everyone’s tastes. Vampires, ghosts, psychos, diseases,etc. This mag got my idea of horror..a feeling of fear *and not just blood and shocking scenes. The only thing I didn’t like maybe was the lack of illustrations. Other than that,4-5 stars. Kudos to everyone behind this. Overall, it was worth my time and money. (and creating smashwords)!
