Taking Submissions: Error Code (Tentative Title)

September 30

Deadline: September 30th, 2024
Payment: $100
Theme: Horror shorts that revolve around technology

Pay: $100 for accepted story.

Rabid Otter, the horror imprint of Riverfolk Books, is putting together a collection of short stories.

Hey everyone, my name is Zaq and I work as the creative director of Riverfolk Books, a progression fantasy indie publication. As much as I enjoy working for Riverfolk, my true love will always lie in horror, and after talking with my boss, he gave me the go ahead to put together a short story collection to get our foot in the door of horror publishing.

Tentatively titled Error Code, I’m looking for horror shorts that revolve around technology. Whether that is something as simple as a killer app or something deeper like someone slowly replacing their body parts with cyborg parts, as long as it leans toward technology in any form, I’m interested. Think Black Mirror, but more horror.

We’re looking for shorts between 6,000 and 10,000 words with the payout being $100 if accepted. Also only asking for SIX months exclusivity after publication.
