Welcome to Spooky Season – DMD Launches Night Frights
Dark Moon Digest, a quarterly magazine from Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing, have launched Night Frights magazine, an annual release aimed at Young Adults.
In this inaugural edition of our annual young adult magazine, monsters take revenge on a school board who cancels Halloween; a kid and some teens try to get a balloon out of a tree; witches recruit a little girl; a father will get a babysitter by any means necessary; a teenager is harassed by a strange creature only she can see; a housesitter gets an unexpected guest; a unique meme goes viral with malicious intent; a couple at a drive-in experience something sinister; a familiar fairy tale gets reimagined; and a boy claims to have met a mummy. With fiction by Madison McSweeney, Nick Manzolillo, Donna J.W. Munro, Priya Sridhar, Brenna Harvey, Amadin Ogbewe, Christopher R. Muscato, Angela Sylvaine, Joti Bilku and Jeff Strand, and an exclusive interview with Adam Cesare.
