Taking Submissions: Unnerving Magazine: Halloween Edition 2017

July 14, 2017

Deadline: July 14th, 2017
Payment: 1 cent per word

Unnerving Magazine accepts short story submissions of horror, dark science fiction (light), dark fantasy and dark literary. Generally leaning strongly toward horror over other genres. Sex, gore and violence are welcome in moderation (nothing gratuitous). The same goes for bizarro works, nothing too far gone (whatever that means). Please no hard science fiction, sword and sorcery fantasy, erotica, romance, humor that isn’t sinister or literary works that venture so far into experimental that they become nonsense.
Payment is 1¢/word. Original fiction only. Reprints by invitation only. We ask for three months exclusivity from publication date and non-exclusive print-on-demand rights for five years. Submit only one story at a time. Submit in .docx, .doc or .odt only. Double-spaced. Please use common sense when formatting. Everything hard on the eyes will be rejected automatically. Allow for up to 6 months before querying. Simultaneous submissions are welcome. Open to authors from any country. Payment by PayPal only within 30 days of publication.

Only stories from 400-2,500 words will be considered for Issue #4 and preference leaning towards Halloween themes or classic monster themes. I want as many authors as possible involved in this special issue. Submissions of stories of up to 4,000 words in length will be considered for Issue #5 (01/2018).
