Note: Reprints Welcome

  • My Job is a Hellhole!
    • Working for demons, imps, devils, and other minions of hell. You boss is a denizen of the underworld, but the story can take place in any setting. Any setting means: hell, another planet, Modern Earth, Future Earth. Heaven? Sure why not? Maybe there’s an employee exchange program between heaven and hell.
    • I’m looking for fantasy, dark fantasy, horror, humor (oh HELL YES) and science fiction if you can come up with a science fiction-y hellscape.

No MORE than 1500 words, no LESS than 750 words for flash, no more than 2500 words for shorts) for $10 per piece original, previously unpublished flash, shorts $15). Microfics (350-749 words) will pay at a $5 per story rate for original, previously unpublished stories.  Will consider publishing a couple of drabbles for this, at $1 per drabble.
    • Reprints accepted for this one, $10 for shorts, $5 for flash, $3 for micro. No drabble reprints.
    • No poetry for this one.
    • Submissions accepted from Dec 4, 2020 til March 31, 2021.
