Infernal Ink Magazine is a different sort of a literary magazine. We are focused on publishing extremely dark fiction and poetry, of all genres, but we favor pieces with erotic, sexual, or humorous aspects.

In this issue we have our interview with writer, former prison guard, and Amazon Goddess of Doom Saranna DeWylde, along with Dave Lipscomb’s column “The DaveL’s Music” and his new are column “Demonic Visions”. See sights here that you will not see anywhere else.

My Review
Infernal Ink Magazine by Hydra M. Star
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Infernal Ink features a medley of dark art for readers over 18-years of age. No lovey-dovey poetry and a couple of the stories made me gag when lurid details caught me off guard.

Obviously, with a female editor, there's a well-rounded view of women that will always be seen in every issue. Vol. 3, issue 1 has some female zombies and a murder victim countered by strong women who aren't afraid to take what they want, especially when supernatural power gives them the ability. Gays are also treated like normal f'ck'ng people too, if you can call any of the fictional people in this publication normal. It's probably safer to say that this magazine is intended for people who've never worn the normal label.

I received a free copy of this volume in exchange for a review. To be honest, I don't read many magazines/eZines for two reasons: the number of ads and because too many publications feel redundant after reading a couple issues. This volume of Infernal Ink has more art than ads and I'm contemplating purchasing/subscribing to see if Infernal Ink breaks that redundancy-mold.
