The Unspeakable Oath has limited space in each issue for paid advertising, and we select our advertisers and sponsors carefully.
The Unspeakable Oath reaches an audience that’s heavily invested in all things related to horror and the Cthulhu Mythos—games, fiction, movies, websites, conventions, you name it. If you’re trying to reach Cthulhu Mythos or horror fans, they don’t get any more targeted than this.
The Oath is published in print and digital formats. The print format has a limited print run and reaches a small but highly select readership. The digital edition of each issue has a wider reach. Each ad that appears in the print edition appears in the digital edition as well, along with a clickable hyperlink to the advertiser’s website.
A single advertising rate gets an ad that appears in both the print and the electronic editions, plus a link on that issue’s web page at theunspeakableoath.com.

Interior ads print in grayscale in the print edition of the Oath but can be color (RGB) for the electronic editions. All ads must be provided in TIFF or JPEG format at 300 dpi.
The accompanying web ad should be 180 pixels wide by no more than 360 pixels tall, RGB-color JPEG, GIF, or PNG. The web ad will run from the launch of the issue in which you’re advertising until the following issue launches.
All ads are subject to approval by the editor.
For an additional fee our professional designers can even design the ad for you. We use people who do graphic design for marketing campaigns for a living. They do excellent work and will work closely with you to develop the ad you need.
