Peep Show [2001]

Total Issues: 5

Small press erotic horror fiction magazine. "They can contain lots of sex. Or they can have a more subtle erotic theme to them. The horror theme can be very strong and violent. Or it can be more subtle. That's the basic theme of what I'm after. Please don't submit anything with sex involving children. Also, don't send anything containing incest or any other subjects like that."

Converted to an original anthology with effect from 2004.
