Hey wait a minute... Wasn't Dark Dossier a FREE magazine? 

Yes, for years it was a free magazine but with costs rising everywhere it was either shut down dark dossier or finally charge for the issues... We will still offer the newest issue for FREE for a limited time before going to $1.99.



Are you a writer with a short horror story thinking 'what do I do with this?' I was that writer! That is why I started Dark Dossier Magazine.

Just send in your short stories about Ghosts, Aliens, Monsters, & Killers and together we'll make an awesome horror & scifi magazine!

*Dark Dossier Magazine comes out every month  (10 issues: No issues in November or December)

So send in your stories... We would love to include them in Dark Dossier Magazine. 

Have fun and welcome to the team!
