I’m looking for original (no reprints) well-written (duuh, I guess that that’s fairly obvious) weird stories. My tastes are broad and I’m looking for any of the following: fantasy, dark fantasy, sword and sorcery, ghost, horror, heroic fantasy, science fantasy or just plain odd.


But don’t forget, this is for our 2017 Annual and the theme is WITCHES!


Okabe, by Kuniyoshi Utagawa, c. 1844
