Welcome! Underworld is a dark online literary magazine with horror fiction, true ghost stories, dark poetry, and other strange stuff to delight and entertain the ghoulish reader. This is a classic internet site that has been around since the 1990s.

Horror graphics Get Great Graphics!
Good horror graphics are as hard to find as a good crypt keeper, but we've dug up a great resource. If you need horror or Halloween graphics, check out ButterflyWebGraphics.com.

While you're here don't forget to check out our Classic Horror stories. We offer you a full-length novella, The Turn of the Screw, by Henry James. So please check this dusty tomb out! It nearly cost us an arm and a leg to unearth such a treasure for you, but luckily, we were able to fight off the walkers.

And finally, though time is ever short in the living years, we're back, and trying to spiff up the site a bit-- while retaining its classic character. We'll be adding great new content, including more of Marie's psychic investigations. We would tell you more, but decided that it would be best to fill you with anticipation about what we'll be serving up. Actually, we're afraid that we might scare you away if we tell you our plans now. So keep dropping by, and don't forget our upcoming issues or else.
