Goodbye, Dear Friend

It pains me to report (although most of you have doubtless read), Necrotic Tissue will be closing its doors with issue #14.

Necrotic Tissue was my first HWA qualifying sale back when they paid $25 to make sure newbies could squeeze their toes through the "affiliate" door. I've been lucky enough to have three stories appear in Necrotic Tissue over the years: "Catalog Sales", "The Distillery", and the recent flash story, "Enough", in issue #13.

It's sad to see such cornerstones of the small press fade. Sadder still had it not been with us at all.

Thank you, Mr. McCoy and staff, for all the horror you've brought us.

I've been out of the loop for awhile and didn't know this!


Sorry to hear this!

It's news to the world, I think.

I always hate to see a good mag go under, and I especially hate seeing Necrotic Tissue go.

Doug Murano said...

Thanks for the kind words, Aaron. And thanks for sharing your work with us.

Jameson T. Caine said...

What a bummer. Damn.

Danielle Ferries said...

Sad news indeed.

Aaron Polson said...

Tony - I'm shocked and saddened.

Doug - It's been a great run.

Jameson, Danielle - let's all write sad, horrific stories to mourn, shall we?

Just read it this morning when I came back from the long weekend. I'm so depressed!
