West Deptford, NJ, March 9, 2010—Fright Times Magazine will resume publication with an upcoming issue available for purchase in April. Fright Times will also have an official relaunch debut at the National Haunters Convention & Halloween show in King of Prussia, PA located in the Valley Forge Convention Center.

Now under the guidance of National Halloween & Haunters Convention Co-Owner Robert F. Kocher, the revitalized magazine will appear in full-color. The first new issue is aptly dubbed “Unearthed from the Grave” Fright Times focuses on the Haunted House Industry and fans of the Halloween season.

Issues 15 and 16 will have a distribution of 5,000, including visibility at haunted houses, conventions, horror clubs and Halloween events.

A yearly Fright Times mail subscription costs $20.00. The illustrious magazine will appear twice per year—once in the spring to help haunters prepare for the season and again around Halloween at the height of the holiday that makes it happen.

The relaunch includes a completely new Web site located at http://www.frighttimes.com. On the site, readers can browse early-industry historical issues free of charge, subscribe instantly via PayPal, download exclusive Fright Times desktop wallpaper, submit articles, discuss industry news on the message board and retrieve information about the advertising specs and magazine staff.

The Web site also includes photos of celebrities who have enjoyed Fright Times over the years as well as multimedia selections.

About Fright Times

Originating under the skillful direction of John Denley of Boneyard Productions in 1996, Fright Times Magazine enjoyed a six-year run with increased readership. Like the Halloween and haunting industry it represents, Fright Times originally grew out of the popularity of haunting as a hobby.

I will definately be subscribing to Fright Times. I never really read the old issues, but I'm looking forward to the new. I like the old school feel.

I don't visit here often, and post even less, but with all of the news that has been forwarded to me over the past two weeks, I had to peek in.

It looks like the news gets better and better with each passing day, and this news is by far the best news that I've read on this forum.

Best of all to you, Rob!
