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.
So, it’s here – DIODATI THREE. With great stories from Bill DeArmond, R. J. Jacobs, Peter Courridge, Garrick Fincham and Maartijn Stephenson, and fantastic cover art from Luke and Naomi Minner, it offers just the right dose of the gothic to help you over the last of Christmas and New Year. Yours for just 99 pence!
A sneak preview for the D3 cover! This comes courtesy of Luke and Naomi Minner of Indelible Ink Workshop. We interview them in D3, but for a look at their work visit:
Radio Diodati – the third edition play list. D3 coming soon.

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…
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.
We have a winner ! Pop back at 11.59 pm as you down that last sherry for a tale to welcome in Christmas day…
A quick reminder that we are drawing to the close of our Diodati Christmas writing contest. Open to all, whether you’ve submitted to us in the past or not, the winner will be published on our website at one minute to midnight on Christmas Eve itself. There will also be a small prize of a £15 Amazon voucher – just enough to buy anything that takes your fancy that we review in the imminent second edition.
You need to get your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight tonight (though we’ll still accept any late entries tomorrow). We have also decided to publish a worthy runner up or two on New Year’s Eve.
