Taking Submissions: Beyond The Bounds of Infinity
Deadline: October 15th, 2023
Payment: 8 cents per word
Theme: Cosmic horror and weird tales written by marginalized peoples whose experiences and worldviews have influenced their interpretation of dread.
BEYOND THE BOUNDS OF INFINITY is an anthology, edited by Vaughn A. Jackson & Stephanie Pearre, of cosmic horror and weird tales written by marginalized peoples whose experiences and worldviews have influenced their interpretation of dread. The anthology hopes to bring these diverse perspectives to the forefront of the horror community and, of course, make Lovecraft roll over in his grave!
We are looking for original short stories of weird fiction and cosmic horror that coil up inside us and leave us begging (and fearing) for more. Any genre is fair game so long as it has a twisted knot of horror for a heart. While stories may contain violence, sexuality, and religion, we are not looking for extreme/splatter-punk, erotica, non-fiction, or religious diatribes.
Submission Window: September 15th – October 15th. Stories submitted before or after these dates will be deleted without being opened.
Word Count: 2000 – 4000 words. There is a limited amount of flexibility to these, but the farther outside of this range you go the less likely we are to choose your story.
Simultaneous Submissions: Yes. Just let us know in your email, and update us if the story is selected elsewhere.
Multiple Submissions: No. One submission per person.
Target Age Group: Mature Readers
Rights: World English first rights in print, electronic, audio, and ebook, including a six-month exclusivity period. All copyright belongs to the author.
Response Time: We hope to make selections and respond to authors within 1-2 Months from the close of submission.
Pay Rate: 8 cents per word.

- Persons of Color
