The guys behind these great publications are too shy to write about it outside the Conversation Piece area, but they deserve more praise, me thinks!

So, who here have bought, read and loved Shock Totem? Favorite issue? Favorite story?

I've bought them. I enjoy the wide range of ideas in the stories. My favorite is still probably "Sweepers".

Aw.....shucks, Guys!

We're proud of ST. very proud.

If you like what we've been putting out...consider dropping a review on Amazon...or on your blog. Or just name dropping us with kind words on FB or Twitter.

It all helps.

You rock! And seriously, without HOM, ST might have never came to be.

SHOCK TOTEM is a magazine/digest of unique dark fiction. It is conceived and put together by folks who met up here years ago.





It's also a weapony thing in World Of Warcraft...

I bought the first issue on my Kindle app for my iPad. I enjoyed it very much. Not sure why I haven't bought the others.

Without a doubt, Shock Totem exists because this forum exists. I might have started another publication, but surely it wouldn't have been called Shock Totem.

Anyway, thanks, guys! Really appreciate the kind words. It's a hell of a lot of work, far more than most people realize, so a little praise goes a long way. And yes, like John said, any kind of review on Amazon helps a ton. The more positive reviews (four stars or more), the more Amazon shows our issues to potential customers.

Hell, even logging into Amazon and "liking" the print and Kindle pages help. Agreeing with or adding your own tags (you gotta scroll down to see these) helps. Amazon's algorithm is a tricky thing to figure out, but this stuff has proven to help.

But again, thanks! Issue #5 is coming next month. =)

Just ordered my copy from Amazon. Don't know when I'll get around to reading it but I just want to support the effort.

Of the ones I've read so far, you know what one was really disturbing? Nick's real-life story; I can't imagine dealing with that, not just when it happened but for the rest of my life.

Yeah, the narrative nonfiction pieces are some of my favorite things we've done, and Nick's is great.

I agree. I remember Mercedes' non-fiction piece was really disturbing as well. Now that I think about it, wasn't her's about being a nurse or something in a group home? What a companion piece to Nick's essay.

Yeah, Mercedes did one about working with child sex offender, and then another about losing friends and family in a mining disaster. I did the other one, the zombie/alcoholism piece. For issue #6, there is a piece on Alzheimer's.

At some point, though, we're going to have to find outside writers because we're running out of tragedies. Haha. Check this out, though:

This could have been a brilliant narrative nonfiction piece. So terribly sad, you know. =(

Why didn't you run that? I know it's terribly sad and poignant but I bet there are other people who could relate to the same feelings.
