Shock Totem 3

I wanted to wait until I had this

in hand before I posted about how damn proud I was to have a story in Shock Totem. A big thank you to the brave editors for taking a chance on my little story, "Wanting It". It's one of my favorite tales, if not my very favorite (don't tell my other stories) and never fails to catch me with armor down at the end.

I've already devoured John Skipp's rather delicious (if one can stomach it) entry and a wonderfully sad tale from Jeremy Kelly, "A Birth in the Year of the Miracle Plague". Shock Totem is a mag well worth your support.

You know what to do.

A big congrats! This is a great market to break into. And to be able to hold the mag in your hands is extra-cool. Gotta pick this up.

I loved The Meat Forest and Miracle Plague. ST stories are always memorable.

Michael Stone said...

Niiiice!

Aaron Polson said...

Thanks, Belinda. Everyone should enjoy Shock Totem.

Tony - It feels really "solid", too. And 50% bigger than issues 1 & 2.

Amanda - I have plenty of ST yet to read. Yum.

Thanks, Michael.

Rabid Fox said...

Very nice. Congrats again, man.

Jeremy Kelly said...

Thanks for the shout out, Aaron.

Oh, and thanks for "Wanting It", too. That one left a scar that I have not forgotten.

Natalie L. Sin said...

Well done!

Aaron Polson said...

Thanks, Gef.

Jeremy - I aim to scar, so awesome!

Natalie - ;)

Sweet! Glad to hear it's finally reaching the authors. I hope everyone is pleased. We're really proud of this issue.

And the stories are fantastic. I can't pick a favorite!

Aaron Polson said...

Thanks, Diana & Marcel.

Ken - It's the best issue yet, but of course I'd say that. 50% better at least... haha

Andrea Allison said...

Awesome! Congrats! It always feels good to have the magazine with your story printed inside in your hands. Makes it all seem more real. :)

Milo James Fowler said...

Very cool cover, sir; congrats! (Let's hear it for PRINT.)

Danielle Ferries said...

Congrats! It is indeed a fine publication.

Daniel W. Powell said...

That's a great gig, Aaron. I need to grab a copy (very attractive cover art), as I ordered and really enjoyed the first issue.

Sounds like some great company, also...

Aaron Polson said...

Thanks, Andrea.

Print is not dead, Milo.

Cheers, Danielle.

Daniel - I hope Shock Totem is here for the long haul. The production values are great and Ken Wood really loves the genre.
