This quarterly has been a long time in the making. Having spent decades working and learning in the fields of creative writing, editing, art, and design, I knew the time had come for this indie publication to be born.
This is primarily a horror anthology publication, but stories may also be speculative fiction or haunting literary fiction. In this issue, there are eleven chilling tales and select poems from five talented poets.
The name of this publication originated with the idea to create a traditional, handmade paper zine featuring art and writing and it morphed from there into something better — a place for other writers to share their work. (There is no art featured currently, but perhaps one day). I kept the ‘Zine’ portion of the name because it is sometimes used as a short form for magazine, and I’ve always had a bit of an alliteration addiction. ‘Frost’ is indicative of the chilling works found here, as well as this northern clime. The ‘Zone’, in case you haven’t guessed, is an homage to Rod Serling’s The Twilight Zone.
I hope you enjoy the stories and poems presented here. Some may be disturbing, some tame. All have a chilling or eerie aspect. A big thank you to the poets and writers of fiction who have contributed to this first issue.
