Taking Submissions: Heavy Metal Horror – A Splatterpunk Anthology

June 30, 2012

Deadline: June 30th 2012
Payment: 10 dollars per story and a free copy of the E-Book upon publication.


We are seeking previously unpublished stories of the most gruesome, demented and twisted tales your little mind can come up with. Give us your best punk rock style horror. Emphasis should be on originality, shocking and gross (with particular emphasis on originality). Don’t know what Splatterpunk is? Here is the link to the Wiki definition.



Submission Requirements:

Word count will be a strict 4K – 10K

RTF attachment – (This is important as I have had issues with non RTF files)

Single Spaced

No Headers, Footers or Page Numbers

Use Italics, not Underlines

Place Contact Info and approximate word count on the first page of the submission

Payment will be a flat 10 dollars per story and a free copy of the E-Book upon publication.

I would like to see this in print form but that will depend on the response I receive. It will, however, certainly be in E-Book format

Deadline for submissions will be JUNE 30th. Extensions will be allowed only if the author contacts me PRIOR to the deadline.

Please pay close attention to the submission guidelines. If the story just blatantly disregards the guidelines I will reject the story out right (I understand that mistakes and human error can occur and I will work with the author on correcting them, but I have received stories in the past where not a single guideline was followed including contact info which should be the most important part of your submission aside from the story itself).

Send submissions or questions to [email protected] and put Heavy Metal and the story name in the subject line (just Heavy Metal if you only have a question).1
