Murky Depths bylined as "The Quarterly Anthology of Graphically Dark Speculative Fiction" is a British horror and science fiction magazine which began publishing in 2007. The magazine editor-in-chief is Terry Martin and the editor is Anne Stringer. The magazine is published four times a year. It blends illustrated prose short stories with comic strips. Since Issue #3 it has featured a gloss laminated card cover, whereas Issue #1 and #2 covers were on the same paper stock as the contents. From Issue #7 the cover artwork has been wraparound. Its size is unusual for a magazine, being American comic book or graphic novel format. Murky Depths received the British Fantasy Awards Best Magazine/Periodical in 2010 and shortlisted for the same award in 2011.

The last issue of Murky Depths was published in September 2011 but the publishers, The House of Murky Depths (based in the village of Fosdyke in South Lincolnshire[citation needed]), continue to sell back issues.
