Thanks to my friends over at Deepdotweb, I came across the article First Literary Magazine Of the Dark Web Released. It’s called The Torist, and it’s also been featured in Wired: The Dark Web Has Its Own Lit Magazine Do you know how thrilled I am about this??
For similar reasons as to why author Kari Paul of Vice wrote the article I Bought Adorable Cookies on the Deep Web, I believe The Torist aims to show that there are things other than drugs, hitmen, scams, child pornography (and other such lovely material) on the dark web.
I suppose it shouldn’t surprise me that much, considering that there are also book clubs on the Tor network, but still, this is right up my alley!!
If you want to access their Tor hidden service, here’s the URL: The Torist on Tor. I’ve said this before, but the Tor network features many blogs, tech sites, and social networks, beyond all the creepy and illegal stuff.
On the other hand, things like the drugs, red rooms, etc. are the type of juicy material that make tabloid headlines and good creepypastas, so are you really that surprised that that’s what you hear more about?
Being that I write poetry and other literary forms in addition to blogging, this really isn’t much of a stretch for me. I haven’t had a chance to access The Torist’s onion site yet, but I will as soon as I have the opportunity, believe me!
I’ve been wanting to get more of my writing onto the dark web through whatever avenue possible, anyway. Here’s my chance, I suppose!
I’ll follow this post up when I actually get around to exploring The Torist a bit more.
In the meantime, readers, keep having your dark web fun…and watch your backs.
