Horror Magazines

horror magazines

We have some friends at the horror magazine Hello Horror.

Here are over 100 Horror magazines. It is updated continuously. Horror magazines have been around since the 1600s, possibly earlier, if we consider the old horror pamphlets as a direct predecessor to our modern day magazines. It can certainly be argued that horror is one of our oldest genres, and we would, I hope, all agree that horror publications, and horror magazines have played a large role in keeping the genre alive and vital.

It’s fun to be scared. From those early horror pamphlets we got Dracula and Frankenstein. Stoker was said to be a fan of those scary circulators. Stephen King wrote Creepshow, a great homage to those early horror comics and pulp magazines, and today we see again and again horror authors turning to magazines, finding horror stories and bringing them into novels and onto the big screen and wider audiences.

Horror magazines, these terror-filled collections of tales are what shape the conventions of our day. I believe if you see it in a horror magazine, a couple years later you’ll see everywhere in horror. These stories and magazines lead the way, even though they are so small. They are the innovators. The hardcore horror fans, authors, and future authors are reading them. Some people think these small publications do not matter, but I am telling you they are the cornerstone of our nightmares.

This list, I hope helps those magazines listed here. I hope it helps you as writers. The first part of this list links to our pages and gives you full listings of these horror magazines. If you want to see all of our horror genre please check our searchable database of horror magazines..

If you are a horror editor and you would like to listing your magazine with us, please submit your magazine..
