Taking Submissions: 99 Penny Dreadful – Byte Sized Tales of the Unexpected

February 24, 2013

Deadline: February 24th 2013
Payment: Digital copy and exposure

99 Penny Dreadful is a project intended to showcase some of the best short stories from authors of offbeat fiction. The kind of tales that may struggle to find a home elsewhere. This e-book is a homage to pulp magazines such as Weird Tales, without which the world may have never heard of authors like H.P. Lovecraft, Robert Bloch, and Robert E. Howard.

Whether it’s horror, crime, science fiction, fantasy, adventure, or any kind of unusual tale, we’d love to see it. We aren’t concerned about whether your story has been published before. The mission statement of 99 Penny Dreadful is to expose innovative short fiction writers to the widest possible audience. Please feel free to put your best foot forward. It can be something that has been published before, or that hidden gem that hasn’t found the right home until now.

Nor do we demand exclusivity or any kind of ownership. Merely the right to publish your submission in 99 Penny Dreadful. Ideally, submissions should be 2000 to 8000 words, as we are looking for punchy reads for the bus or the train. This e-book will be priced at a modest 99 cents in the spirit of the title, so we are in it for love rather than money. Contributors will however receive a kindle copy.

Please send submissions to the email address below by the 24th of February. Best of luck, and good writing!
