Terror House Magazine is a nonprofit in the literal sense, since none of us are making any money.
Don’t get us wrong: we run this site because we believe in our mission and we enjoy doing it. But belief doesn’t pay the rent, and the only income Terror House Magazine makes is the measly pennies from our Amazon affiliate links.
We have big plans to expand the site, and we need funds to implement them. Here are the changes we’re looking to make over the next few months, in order of importance:
- Paying all contributors to the site
- Raising the monthly cash prize we award to our best contributors
- Creating an email newsletter
- Creating Terror House Radio, a live show dedicated to discussions of literature, lit news, and interviews with contemporary authors
- Translating important works into English, as well as translating our most popular submissions into other languages
- And more…
If we can gain at least $500 a month in donations, we will be able to implement all of these additions and more. In the long-term, we also want to launch Terror House Press, a publishing company that will extend our mission to promote the best outsider literature.
Terror House will rise to the top, but we can do it faster with your support. If you enjoy what we do, we’d greatly appreciate it if you could make a donation. Big or small, every contribution helps.

2. Brave Rewards (BAT)
If you use the Brave browser, both Terror House Magazine and our YouTube channel are verified on Brave Rewards, Brave’s in-built system for allowing users to financially support the websites and creators whose content they consume.
If you don’t know what Brave is, it’s a new web browser created by Brendan Eich, the former Mozilla co-founder and CEO who was forced to resign in 2014 because of his support for Proposition 8, the California anti-gay marriage proposal, back in 2008. Beyond being much faster than Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and other browsers, Brave is designed to protect users’ privacy with built-in ad and script blocking. All of us at Terror House Magazine have been using Brave for months and love it.
To compensate content creators for lost ad revenue, the Brave Rewards system allows Brave users to financially support their favorite websites and content creators either by sending tips or automatically donating every month, similar to Patreon. Brave Rewards uses Basic Attention Tokens (BAT), an Ethereum-based cryptocurrency that is rapidly gaining value (you can track the price of BAT here). Brave’s auto-tracking system allows you to automatically send us BAT based on how much time you spend on my websites, YouTube channel, or Twitch channel, though it’s also possible to override the system and send us custom tips.

Thanks for reading our site and supporting our work. With your continued readership and support, Terror House Magazine will be able to take the literary world by storm.
