DarkFuse Magazine Additions


The staff behind DarkFuse Magazine have been busy ramping up its content.  There has been several new signings of original content for subscribers in the past few weeks:

Buried Soldiers Serial
Keith Deininger’s serial novella has been a hot topic.  Currently there are 2 more installments left before it’s complete. Check it out HERE.

Horror d’oeuvres
DarkFuse Magazine has acquired the flash fiction from Horror d’oeuvres.  This will now be an ongoing series through the magazine.  Authors who submit original content to the magazine at 999 words or under will qualify to get their stories published in this series.  Read past Horror d’oeuvres HERE.

Cult of Kill
Patrick Kill, during his decade in print, produced some of the most iconoclastic, darkly humorous fiction to dare to be printed.  Now, DarkFuse Magazine has acquired Kill’s entire library to publish in the new column, Cult of Kill. Two classic stories have already been posted with many more to come.  Read them HERE.

The magazine has also reopened to original fiction submissions and will publish new stories in addition to the quality non-fiction it has always brought to subscribers.

What’s even better is that there’s a free e-mail subscription.  Make sure you’re a subscriber or you’ll miss out on some amazing new content.

Keith Deininger’s BURIED SOLDIERS To Be Published in DarkFuse Magazine



On Monday, June 8th, 2015 DarkFuse Magazine will be publishing a 10-day serial novella by author Keith Deininger. Buried Soldiers is the latest novella to be penned by Deininger and has never before been published.

Only DarkFuse Magazine subscribers will be able to access this exclusive novella, as this title will not be published in either print or digital beyond the magazine.

Here’s a little more about this publishing event…

Alone in his childhood home, in an apocalyptic city savaged by fever and madness, Grady spends his nights beneath the moon digging in the backyard, tormented by memories of his nightmarish time at war. He digs to recover something from his childhood, evidence of a humanity to which he desperately clings to: the plastic toy soldiers he used to play with, buried somewhere in the dirt.

When he witnesses a young girl, without pity or malice, kill a young boy with a rock, he knows the Fever has spread. And when the little girl warns him that his greatest adversary is headed in his direction—the tyrant and army general known as the Bearded Man, with jet black hair twisting from chin to feet and severed heads tied about his voluminous robes like bobbing fruit ripe for picking—he knows he must find his buried soldiers before he is discovered.

But things are not what they seem to be, and the soldiers Grady unearths may be more than he’s bargained for…
