SAN FRANCISCO, October 18, 2012 –JournalStone Publishing (JSP) President, Christopher C. Payne and Dark Discoveries Magazine Managing Editor, James Beach, are pleased to announce that JSP and The Australian Horror Writers Association (AHWA) have entered into an exclusive joint marketing agreement pursuant to which JSP and Dark Discoveries Magazine will be the exclusive USA distributor of the AHWA official biannual magazine, Midnight Echo, while the AHWA will become the exclusive Australian distributor of Dark Discoveries magazine. Both parties voiced their enthusiasm for the agreement, which means that the pre-existing high premium that potential readers of each respective magazine have had to pay to receive the other periodical in their respective countries will be eliminated making both magazines much more affordable and accessible/available for all.  Look for availability on both the JSP and Midnight Echo websites in the coming weeks where you will be able to purchase the magazines individually or in a bundled offering that includes both Dark Discoveries magazine and Midnight Echo.

Dark Discoveries Magazine, a subsidiary of JournalStone Publishing, is a well-established and popular full-color slick print quarterly magazine, including a digital edition, which is internationally-distributed in the U.K., Germany, Canada and all across the USA, and features some of the best fiction, interviews, reviews and art to be found in the field of dark Fantasy.
