With a creak, Diodati closes it’s doors…

Diodati – 1st Edition Cover by P. Emmerson Williams.

Sadly, gothic terror stalking us into the night, we are no more. Various pressures mean that Diodati’s third issue will be it’s last. Thank you for your interest, feedback and support… we hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as we have. But then, like plot twist, perhaps we’re not quite done. The website stays, and it’s possible that we may look at something a little different. For now though, the bell has tolled.

Churches at night – rarely healthy places in the world of the Gothic…

Welcome to The Sermon of the Dead by Ian Tovey – a great runner up to the 2015 Writing Contest. Ian has published with us before, and we are delighted to offer up another slice of his brand of 17th Century spookiness.

Happy New Year, unless you have had an experience like the Reverend Riggs. In that case you’re fairly doomed, and no amount of good wishes from us, or any one else, is going to help…

The Moth Clock – winner, 2015 Diodati Christmas Writing Competition

Tick... flutter... tock... flutter...

Tick… flutter… tock… flutter…

We are pleased to introduce ‘The Moth Clock’, by Pete McCormick. Pete, native of Glasgow, based this tale around a derelict house that he knew as a boy. He walked past it any number of times wondering if there were people looking back from the darkened interior, peering at him through the cracked windows.

He would like to make it clear that he never had the courage to go inside. Tick… tock…

Congratulations, Pete – Amazon vouchers on their way. Look out for the runner up, published here, same time, New Year’s Eve.
