Latest somethingdark news

Developing a website such as SDk and the magazine it hosts takes time. That's why we think contributors and others interested in what we are doing deserve to be kept informed on our progress. This page has been designed to do exactly that: to keep you up-to-date as to where we are. We're pleased to have you with us.

Better than ever: second-generation SDk:Mob tweakedSDk Updates ->

Tues 22 Nov, 2011.

In December last year we announced the release of a mobile version of SomethingDark webMagazine, SDk:Mob (see the item below for Thur 02 Dec, 2010). A second generation of SDk:Mob was developed for release soon after SDk02, and we are now pleased to announce that this latest incarnation of our dedicated format for smartphones has just been polished. We are confident it will, at the very least, do its job, and will compare well with the best that’s “out there”.

For the full SDk experience, however, nothing beats the big screen of your home or laptop or tablet computer – SomethingDark webMagazine is fully compatible with iPad, as we announced in February this year (see the item for Thurs 24 Feb, 2011, below).

On another note, SDk02 has received some publicity on third-party sites, including on Supervert’s website. We reviewed all three of Supervert’s books in SDk02, and he has posted screen shots as PDFs in the review sections for the appropriate books: Perversity Think Tank, Necrophilia Variations, and Extraterrestrial Sex Fetish.

Chris Ashford, Reader in Law and Society in the Department of Law at the University of Sunderland (UK), greeted SDk02 with some acclaim in his blog post, “Something Dark(er)”; and Skin Two online had SDk02 as its lead item on the front page for some time, “SomethingDark – Online Magazine Shines Light on Cultural Crisis”. More such items are in the pipeline.

In the meantime, all major contributors to SDk03 are onboard and planning for that issue is well underway.
