Shadows & Tall Trees to go indefinite hiatus

Regrettably, I am putting Shadows & Tall Trees on indefinite hiatus. Sales have not met my meagre expectations and have made the journal a losing proposition. It’s been a good run. I’ve produced six volumes, with several stories being selected for reprint in “Year’s Best” and “Best Of” anthologies, and acclaim from many quarters. But acclaim alone cannot keep the journal solvent, so, for now, I’m shuttering the publication. Should circumstance change I may consider resurrecting the book.

That said, I am focusing my attention on other exciting projects. Projects that will hopefully sell. The Year’s Best Weird Fiction, Volume 2, will see publication a year from now. In the summer I will be publishing the tremendous first collection from a talented new writer. And the spring will see the release of a sensational, original anthology edited by a writer I’ve long admired. Plus another surprise or two. More details in due time.

Many thanks to all those who have supported Shadows & Tall Trees, and helped make six fabulous issues possible. The latest volume was published a couple months ago. If you haven’t already, please consider buying a copy, or leaving a review. Thank you.

James Everington had this to say about the latest Shadows & Tall Trees:

“There’re a lot of anthologies these days with titles like “Year’s Best Horror…” etc. 

‘Shadows & Tall Trees 6′ isn’t called such a thing, but it might as well be. A stunning collection of stories, with not a bad one among the bunch. Intelligent, well-written, original horror fiction and (along with the editor’s introduction) a passionate manifesto for horror fiction in the short form.

Superb.”
