Hurrah! An interactive fiction acceptance in Gathering Storm Magazine.

My interactive fiction (IF) short story, “Hanging with the Cockroach Lord” has been accepted in Gathering Storm Magazine.



Their magazine is suffused with conflict and they pride in taking their readers and transporting them away from known worlds.

Every issue deals with several themes, that can be found in their stories. The themes are old sayings, proverbs, or maxims.

Themes for the upcoming issue are:

  • Trial by fire

  • An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth

  • Let not the sun go down on your wrath

  • Better late than never

Around which theme does my story “Hanging with the Cockroach Lord” revolve?

You’ll have to see when it comes out! 🙂


For potential submitters, Gathering Storm Magazine pays $25 for each accepted story 2000 words or less. Interactive Fiction submissions are also encouraged.

It’s a rather new magazine (the first issue released in January 2017) with already three issues to boast of. Editions are available on pdf and on ibook, or as a hard copy through Amazon.

Join Editors-in-Chiefs Michael & Cindy McHenry as they unfurl the mast and set sail through the Gathering Storm, taking us along on their adventuresome ride.
