Payment: one contributor copy for short stories of at least 2000 words. Read for details on shorter works.
The anthology will approach the human condition through horror from a literary standpoint. I’m looking for “horror literature.” Dictionary.com defines the human condition as “the positive and negative aspects of existence as a human being, esp. the inevitable events such as birth, childhood, adolescence, love, sex, reproduction, aging, and death” In other words, “The Human Condition” is about the fundamental issues of human existence. One of literature’s central concerns is to comment on these issues.
Payment is one contributor copy for short stories of at least 2000 words. To earn a contributor copy a poet must have five poems selected. Authors that choose to submit fiction less than 2000 words (flash fiction) must have two pieces selected, or a combination of flash fiction with a poem and/or art. For artists, at least three pieces must be selected to earn a contriubtor copy. Contributor copies will be sent about 65 days after publication. You can expect a ton of exposure. If you have any questions regarding payment, please query at the address below. I will work with contributors–I like happy people.
Short stories up to 5000 words and flash fiction up to 1,999 words. Poets: don’t let me get in your way, but I must have five poems for a contributor copy. Horror art will be included, and three subs are needed to earn a contributor copy. Black and white or grayscale is the best format, unless I can do color–that’s to be decided later.
