From the Editor's Desk


Publication of Twilight Times ezine has been sporadic for the past couple of years, but we've re-launched with the Halloween 2017 issue. Going forward, we will be publishing on a regular quarterly schedule -- Winter (January 2018), Spring (April 2018), Summer (July 2018) and a special Halloween issue (October 2018). We need poetry and stories for the Winter issue as well as the Spring issue. We are currently open to submissions until Dec. 5th. We will open to submissions again from Feb. 15 to Mar. 5, 2018.

Many thanks to the talented contributors who are sending us the finest in speculative fiction, poetry and fantasy artwork. This is the thirty-fifth issue of Twilight Times ezine - online since July 1998.

Especial thanks to Robert Marcom, Patron of the Arts, for supporting our efforts at Twilight Times ezine. Along with patrons Jane Toombs, Anne K. Edwards, Penny Gerking, Roger A. Jurack, Suzanne S. Bridenbaugh, Richard Brookes, Jess Butcher, Andrew May, Pat Fredeman and Elena Naskova.
