Current Submission Window:

September 16, 2014 – December 16, 2014

What we are looking for?

Well written stories that play out the human experience against unimaginable and terrifying odds. Dark fiction that defined more by the story than the splatter. We are open to supernatural, psychological and physical fear.

What we aren’t looking for?

Do not try to shock us with excessive gore, rape and brutality. We are not looking for any sexually explicit stories, be it with a human or a creature of fantasy. We are not looking for tame, but there has to be an actual story in the stories.

  • Submissions: No multiple submissions, original stories preferred, but we will consider reprints for stories having been out of print for 18 months or longer.
  • Review Period: Please allow us 8 weeks to respond to your story before revoking or sending your story elsewhere. Our editors will make every effort to respond expediently.
