Charles is a huge anthology fan with a particular fondness for Herbert Van Thal’s Pan Book Of Horror series and the Black Books are an attempt at taking up where Bertie left off.

DIRE THREATS

‘Pull your trousers down, pull your trousers down or I’ll snick your little nipper off with a bloody chopper.’ – The Head

THE HORRIFYING

”…he had selected a sharp skewer from the kitchen and driven it through her ear and into her sleeping brain with one blow from a wooden mallet.’ – The Devil Looks After His Own?

AND THE GRISLY

‘…he stood back and watched as the fire-lit form writhed and gibbered; as slowly but surely, in a welter of blood and hanging tissue, its exposed musculature was shredded from the gleaming bones beneath…’ – Words

Ha! I see we have your attention! Available now, the latest volume in Charles’ BFS award nominated Black Books. Several of the contributors will be familiar to you from Vault (although not necessarily under names their mothers would recognise them by). Charles is a huge anthology fan with a particular fondness for Herbert Van Thal’s Pan Book Of Horror series and the Black Books are an attempt at taking up where Bertie left off. All involved are playing a blinder, not least cover artist Paul Mudie. “Top your work for #2!” they demanded. Paul obliged. Hope to be getting my copy soon, so you’ll probably get a review in about three years if my recent form is anything to go by. Don’t wait!

Coral writes:

Some background: TTMC was set up with two basic aims. Having been a member of the Vault of Evil for a while, I was inspired by the members’ various literary projects to create one of my own. However, my purpose was slightly different in that I decided to take submissions from female writers alone, to begin with. Thus my first aim was to provide a relaxed, encouraging atmosphere for women, who were perhaps wondering if writing was for them, to come forward and submit their work in an uncharged, “we’re all girls here” style arena. Ego-wise, I also hoped to be responsible for discovering the next Shirley Jackson or Poppy Z Brite. The other main issue that I have tried to address with this publication is that of “genre”. I do dislike that word. Rigidity by editors and publications over subject matter, and indeed word counts, formatting, style etc ad nauseum, can be intimidating for someone just starting out. By creating a magazine with no boundaries, where literally anything is considered, and may even be submitted by myspace message if so desired, I am hoping to coax out work that might otherwise remain unpublished, either because the author is unsure, or has perhaps been rejected as being “not what we’re looking for” by genre publications. I hope you will enjoy reading this superb collection of multi-genre stories, verse and flash fiction as much as I have! BLOGS coming soon: Should this publication be gender inclusive? Submissions for issue two required. Should submissions for artwork be opened? Should a section for non fiction, reviews, articles and such be included?

On a personal note, I do hope you’ll enjoy reading the top notch stories, verse and flash fiction in this first issue, and will be tempted to look out for number 2 this autumn. This labour of love was inspired by my chums at the Vault of Evil message board, and by Rog Pile, who also kindly donated some of his fantastic artwork to enhance the magazine. The lovely lady contributors have given their utmost to create a cosmopolitan mix of styles and genres. The next issue will include even more quality fiction.

Enjoy. Coral x.

Anyone desiring to review the magazine, also please contact me here: coralkingATlive.co.uk (substitute the AT‘ with @ :anti-spam measure – demonik)

copies are available to order for the very reasonable sum of £2.50 plus .75p p+p; see the paypal button on the profile page at women writers

See also the Vault of Evil ‘The Thinking Man’s Crumpet’ thread. This is among our “better” ones, actually, as it covers the TMC project from its inception through to publication and TMC’s first review!
