A little word from our readers:

One of the great things about Sanitarium Magazine is the effort they put into discovering new authors. Many horror magazines favor work of King or other "proven" authors, but by reaching out the the next generation, Sanitarium opens the door to really new ideas.” - DL SHANNON // DEVER, CO

Sanitarium is an excellent high quality horror magazine full of new, emerging writers and some old faces. All the stories are very good. However, my personal favourite by Lex Sinclair stands out as the best. It has elements of Edgar Allen Poe.” - SAM // LONDON, UK
