Taking Submissions: Horror Without Victims

May 30, 2013

Deadline: November 1st 2012 through May 30th 2013 (DO NOT SUBMIT EARLY!)
Payment: 1p (£0.01) per word

DF Lewis is intending to publish a Horror anthology book with the above title in 2013.

Horror Stories, Weird Literature, Ghost Stories, Literary Fiction.

Each story must either subtly or directly reflect the title of the anthology.

Stories between 2000 and 10,000 words.

One-off payment upon publication: 1p (£0.01) per word

Start Date for Submissions: 1 November 2012

End Date for Submissions: 30 May 2013

Submissions (not simultaneous or multiple) as a Word attachment to [email protected]. As with some earlier Megazanthus Press publications, you may submit by anonymous email and your story will be rejected or accepted before knowing who you are. Also, you may submit non-anonymously. The accepted stories will all be published with their correct by-line. [Please expect a simple acknowledgement within a few days of your submission. Otherwise please send it again.]

Stories must be previously unpublished in any form.

As with the ‘The Horror Anthology of Horror Anthologies’ and ‘The First Book of Classical Horror Stories’, DF Lewis will edit, publish, design, typeset and print (via Lulu) this book. It will be distributed under an ISBN system. Please at least read the reviews of previous Megazanthus Press publications to gauge the type of fiction favoured by the editor.

I may need to keep your story for the whole reading-period but may not be able eventually to accept it depending on the timing of other acceptable stories being submitted to me over the period.

As a paying market for writers, MEGAZANTHUS PRESS / NEMONYMOUS (2001 – 2012) has previously published 205 original stories by various authors. And ’HORROR WITHOUT VICTIMS’ follows in this tradition.
