Taking Submissions: TALES OF THE UNDEAD – Suffer Eternal

February 20, 2013

Deadline: February 20th, 2013
Payment: Exposure only

Flash fiction & Short Stories (1,000 – 3,000 words)

Poetry accepted.

Eternal life, what does it mean to live forever? What is the cost of such a prize, and is it worth the price?

The scope of such a topic brings forth boundless notions for the budding author. Tales of the undead, and those who cheat the reaper give hope to a readership, or can just as easily take it away.

I want stories of Eternal life. Give me deals with the devil, illegal experiments, and mysterious miracles. Zombies, Vampires, and Spirits are welcome. Make them dark, make them decadent, make them scary – these should be the kind of stories that wouldn’t usually see daylight.

No taboos, just let your imagination run wild.

Dark fairytales, bizarre, horror, surrealism, dark science-fiction are all cool here.
