Taking Submissions: Death’s Realm

January 31, 2014


Deadline: January 31st, 2014
Payment: $100 flat rate per each manuscript accepted into the anthology

Now Accepting Short Story Submissions

What happens after death?
That’s the question Grey Matter Press would like you to answer.

For our next anthology–working title “Death’s Realm”–we’re looking for dark, horrifying tales exploring themes from “the great beyond.”

We do not want to limit your creativity with a narrowly themed collection, so “Death’s Realm” will include works of truly terrifying dark fiction that investigate the concepts of hauntings, spirits, life after death, ghostly encounters and just about any other subject that pertains to the afterlife and the horrifying things that might reside just beyond the veil. Be prepared to scare the hell out of us.

Please review our Submissions Guidelines below, and feel free to contact us here on the site with any questions. or send a message to [email protected].

We thank you for your interest in considering Grey Matter Press as a potential home for your work.

*”Death’s Realm” is a working title. Grey Matter Press reserves the right to change the title as necessary.
