Welcome

What is a Penny Dreadful?

Adventure, mystery, horror, romance…CLIFFHANGERS!  Penny Dreadfuls had it all, and could be bought for a single cent.  These action-packed stories were broken down into episodes, printed on cheap paper, and sold in mass quantities in the 1800’s.  The format emigrated to the United States, and was reborn in the Dime Novels, often filled with stories of the Wild West.  Eventually they were absorbed into magazines, radio dramas and movie shorts, before finally dying out. That is, until now…

The Penny Dreadful is the next step in the evolution of serial fiction. The internet provides a perfect media for creating short, ongoing stories that are inexpensive to produce and easy to distribute.  Our authors will be pushing the boundaries of what can be done in an episodic format, and stretching their own creative talent to keep their readers coming back for more.

Get ready to tune in every week to find out what happens in the next exciting episodes on…
