Taking Submissions: Fossil Lake

September 30, 2013


Deadline: Contributor’s Copy copy, and 25% of proceeds to be distributed among contributors
Payment: September 30th, 2013

An anthology of the aberrant

Edited by Christine Morgan

To be published in 2014 by Daverana Enterprises

What we’re looking for:

Short fiction, poetry, or non-fiction written darkly! Send us the indescribable, the transgressive, the controversial, the surreal, the darkety-dark, the gothic-as-hell! Traditional horror, horror targets, and stuff that could have come right out of a horror writer’s nightmare, or a metal album! Send us your “nods” to the genre’s greats! Send us arachnid domiciles, apocalyptic weather systems, obfuscated oculars, ghostly periodicals, intentions of scandal-sheets, archives of nameless dreads!

Are you a woman? LGBT? A fan-fiction hack? Conservative? Christian? Fine by us; we welcome authors of all kinds because, here, it’s the story that counts! We’re far less concerned with subject matter (even erotica, or extreme stuff like self-cannibalism!) than we are with good writing, a sense of humor, the ability to handle criticism and work with an editor, and just generally being personable and having fun.

Basically, if you’re reading this, you probably already have an idea of what we’re looking for, and why. Bonus points for stories set in, mentioning, loosely tied to, or in some way involving a ‘Fossil Lake,’ however you choose to interpret it.
