Horror/ Dark Speculative Fiction

Rated R

Theme: Send me your stories of lights in the sky, a storm that brings with it more than rain, comets that crash, aliens that secretly invade, or a wishing star that is hell-bent on revenge. The stories themselves do not have to take place in the sky, but the evil bad does need to come from it in some way or form.

We are requesting the stories take place in “our world”. Fantasy and fantastic creatures are welcome, but they should occur within our reality.

Compensation: Equal royalty split per story. Digital copy emailed to you.

Formatting guidelines: See our Submission Format guide below

All fiction manuscripts should be in standard manuscript format. Most important: Pen name, title and email on top, double-spaced, 12 pt standard font (e.g. Times, Arial, Courier), and page numbers.

How to submit: Please submit using this FORM when the submission window is open.

Multiple Submission: Yes – We will be happy to read up to FOUR stories per author.

However, we will publish a max of two stories per author, per book. Please send each story in a separate form.

Reprints: Yes we are accepting a small number of reprints.
