Taking Submissions: The Shadow Booth Volumes 4 And 5

Deadline: April 30th, 2019
Payment: 1.5p per word

You know how we like to keep you on your toes? Well…

The Shadow Booth is now OPEN for fiction submissions until the end of April! Here are some basic guidelines:

  • We are a bi-annual journal of weird and eerie fiction. Do not send us your Western romance (in space). Do not send us your drug addiction memoir. Do not send us your shopping list (unless you’re buying some really weird things). Weird. Eerie. Fiction. Please.
  • If you want an idea of what we mean by weird and eerie, then read one of our previous volumes. This is the best way to find out what we like! All ebooks are under £5, and like all independent publications, we need your support to keep going. Paperbacks are under £9, and our latest, Vol. 3, has just been published. (Paperbacks, ebooks and subscriptions are available here. Okay, rant over…) If you want further pointers, why not read editor Dan Coxon’s article on the Ginger Nuts of Horror website: Face the Strange.
  • Submissions should be 1,000 – 8,000 words long. We won’t quibble over a word or two, but otherwise those limits are fixed.
  • We would particularly like to read stories by BAME writers, and by women writing within the weird/eerie horror scene. In our experience, these tend to be underrepresented within the genre. Having said that, if you fall into neither of these groups, we want to read your work too – all stories will be considered on an equal basis once they have been submitted.
  • Please only submit one story during the submissions period. Any further submissions during this period will be rejected. (We would say ‘send us your best’, but you know that already…)
  • Simultaneous submissions are fine, but please let us know if your story is accepted elsewhere. It’s just common courtesy.
  • Email your submission to [email protected], with the word SUBMISSION as the first word of the Subject line. It’s also helpful if you include the story title.
  • Manuscripts should be submitted as a Word file attached to the email wherever possible. We’ll do our best to read .rtf files and PDFs, but we make no promises. DO NOT paste your story into the body of the email.
  • This submissions period is for Vols. 4 and 5, to be published in October 2019 and April 2020.
  • The important part: The Shadow Booth is a paying market, paying 1.5p per word. That works out as £15 per 1,000 words, if it’s simpler. While payments can be made to overseas writers (and we actively encourage writers from overseas to submit), payment is simplified if you have a Paypal account.

Submissions will close at midnight on 30th April 2019, and we’ll be reading submissions as they’re sent – but we will read all submissions sent during this open period. Any questions, come bother us on Twitter. Send us your strangest, most unsettling tales, the stories you had to write but gave up on finding a home for. Send us your weird hauntings, your eerie fever dreams. Send us your words.

Apex Magazine Has Gone On Indefinite Hiatus

Apex Magazine is an outlet which many love to read and many of you likely have submitted to. Unfortunately, the magazine is shutting down indefinitely. Here is what Jason Sizemore had to say about it on Apex’s Website:

Sleep now, Apex Magazine, you’ve earned it.

Where to begin?

 

Let’s jump into it. After much consideration, I’ve decided that Apex Magazine will go on an indefinite hiatus. Our last new issue will be 120–the Afrofuturism issue guest edited by Maurice Broaddus. It’s filled with incredible, diverse work and a fitting sendoff for our zine.

 

Why stop now?

 

The last few months have been difficult for me both mentally and physically. This leads to soul searching. And that leads to life decisions. One thing that became obvious to me is that I was neglecting both myself and the book side of Apex. I need to take time to exercise, take some time for my health, do more things for fun, enjoy having my kids around before they leave for college in a few years. I need time to read more books! And on the book side of Apex, I had been failing to do the minimum for success because so much of my time was being poured into Apex Magazine. The magazine flourished, while the books languished.

 

A flourishing magazine is a great thing, but the profit ceiling for an online zine is disturbingly low. One small press book that does really well (like, for example, Greener Pastures by Michael Wehunt) will make 25 times the profit of the zine in a year.

 

It comes down to health and economics and family. Like most decisions in life.

 

But I want to celebrate what we’ve accomplished with Apex Magazine. 120. That many issues represents exactly ten years of Apex Magazine. Over the course of that time, we’ve published a mind-blowing collection of short fiction, nonfiction, and interviews. Our work has won and/or been nominated for most of the major awards: Hugo, Nebula, Stoker, World Fantasy, and Locus. And I think we’ve also published many important genre stories: “If You Were a Dinosaur, My Love” by Rachel Swirsky, “A Witch’s Guide to Escape: A Practical Compendium of Portal Fantasies” by Alix Harrow, “The Green Book” by Amal El-Mohtar, “Armless Maidens of the American West” by Genevieve Valentine, “The Performance Artist” by Lettie Prell, “Jackalope Wives” by Ursula Vernon … I could go on, but at some point it becomes bragging and nobody wants that.

 

During our ten years, I had the opportunity to publish some of my favorite writers: Jeff VanderMeer, Cherie Priest, Jacqueline Carey, Walter Mosley, Mary Robinette Kowal, Nick Mamatas, Rich Larson, Theodora Goss, and so many others.

 

I’ve had a fine trio of former editor-in-chiefs who have played a huge role in the success of the zine: Catherynne M. Valente, Lynne Thomas, and Sigrid Ellis. Thank you for your hard work.

 

In the early years, it was Maggie Slater and Gill Ainsworth who were my right hand ladies. Now it is Lesley Conner and Jane Clark. I owe them so much.

 

And a reminder … this is an extended hiatus, not a permanent closure. I’m a man of whims, unfortunately. After I ended Apex Digest, it was two years later that I decided I wanted to do Apex Magazine. In two years, if Apex Book Company is going strong, don’t be surprised if I have the itch to reopen the zine.

 

On to some housekeeping:

  • All stories submitted via Moksha will be released back to you. You’re free to submit them elsewhere, of course.
  • All contracted stories will be released back to the authors, including all rights. You’ll be paid your kill fee of 30% down the road when life is less crazy.
  • The website will remain alive. There are simply too many good stories to lose to digital dust. If an author wishes for us to remove a story, email me and it will be done.
  • Lesley Conner and I have not turned our backs on genre short fiction. We plan to do an open call anthology each year that will contain nearly as many words of short fiction as a whole year’s worth of zines. Keep your eyes open for our next project.

 

I love the genre community. Your support for the magazine has meant a lot to me over the years. Now I ask that you throw your support behind the book side of Apex (http://www.apexbookcompany.com). It’s where I’ll be for awhile.

Taking Submissions: Electric Spec August Issue 2019

Deadline: July 15th, 2019
Payment: $20 per story

Please don’t query us about your story submission. We don’t have the manpower to answer such queries. An editor will email you back as soon as possible with the decision about your story. This can take a few days, or, up to three months. We make every effort to get back to authors in a timely manner but we get a lot of submissions so sometimes it’s not possible.

A note on our editorial policy: before publication we may edit the story for length or readability. However, we always remain true to the spirit of the story.

Issues are published at the end of February, May, August, and November. We reserve the right to shift publication date slightly, as necessary.

We have reading periods for each issue, though we never close to submissions.

February closes January 15

May closes April 15

August closes July 15

November closes October 15

Please do not submit the same story more than once, and please submit only one story at a time.

We consider any story between 250 and 7000 words with speculative fiction elements. We prefer science fiction, fantasy, and the macabre, but we’re willing to push the limits of traditional forms of these genres.

Taking Submissions: AfroMyth 2: A Fantasy Collection

Deadline: September 30th, 2019
Payment: 1.5 cents per word

We want adult stories. No erotica, though some erotic or romance elements are acceptable. Magic, gods, mysticism, mythical creatures. Bring us old fairy tales with an Afrocentric twist. We are interested in new gods or ancient ones, old religions, houngans, potions, and spells. Your story can be adapted from African folklore or modern tales. You aren’t restricted in your chosen setting, but priority will be given to stories featuring human characters who live in this world or some version of it.

We want diverse characters in diverse settings, with a main character of indigenous African descent. Please read our general submission guidelinesprior to submitting.1,000-7,500 words, although we’ll consider pieces that fall outside those parameters on a case-by-case basis.

Taking Submissions: Tiny Nightmares

Deadline: May 1st, 2019
Payment: $100

Tiny Nightmares will be a collection of  short and terrifying tales of monsters, madness, and nightmares. The anthology follows up on Tiny Crimes, an anthology of short crime fiction featuring stories by Carmen Maria Machado, Yuri Herrera, Brian Evenson, Amelia Gray, and more.

For Tiny Nightmares, we’re seeking short stories that play with and expand the boundaries of horror fiction — think of the stretch of unlit highway between Jordan Peele’s Get Out, Samanta Schweblin’s Fever Dream, and Stephen King’s IT. Stories that turn our understanding of “scary” on its (trembling) head. We’re looking for:

  • Stories of new monsters, and old ones that scare us in new ways
  • Tiny, intimate horrors to make our hair stand on end
  • Horror as cultural/political/environmental funhouse mirror
  • Subversions of traditional horror tropes
  • Something so scary we haven’t thought of it yet

Guidelines: 

Stories should be under 1200 words.

Stories should be previously unpublished.

Payment will be $100 dollars.

Deadline: May 1st

Trembling With Fear 04/14/2019

One editorial plea this week. Please can all stories be sent in as attachments as per our submissions page. A drabble sent within the body of an email does not guarantee an ‘immediate’ read – even if it is short and right in front of me!

Now for the wonderful stories in this week’s Trembling With Fear.

Black Khakis by F.M. Scott is at the shorter end of our word range but shows what can be done with this length of story. Allan is a stressed office worker and also a writer. He has created a ‘character’ who, I suppose, you would regard in the same light as certain extras you see in a film, those who make a brief appearance and flit out again. We’ve all used them, they usually make a point of some sort or signpost something about the main characters or storyline, then they get killed off or discarded. Now, however, the character, who happens to wear black khakis, has had enough, feels he deserves more. I like this story because it can be taken a couple of ways. It can be read as a little revenge tale, where a downtrodden character finally stands up for himself, or it can be seen as a manifestation of the stress undergone by Allan. Either way, imagination has conjured up the man in black khakis and put the writer in this predicament. Will imagination get him out of it? We are told, as writers, that when a character comes to life and does their own thing regardless of what the author’s intention was then the story is working. In this case, a character coming to life is a lot more worrying.

Exploring by JA Hammer gives a perfect pen portrait of a setting, so clear you can see the place, that little hideaway a child loves to find and explore … The idyllic first paragraph contrasts with the shorter, sparser description of the interior but which is in its own way just as perfect, going from sunlight to a world washed in sepia tones. And then the flight with a last sentence which has a double meaning created by some very clever word play. Stephen King in miniature.

The Unthawing by CR Smith is another short piece with some excellent imagery. A dystopian world bound by snow hints at winged predators waiting for the return of humans to the cities which have long been deserted. Nothing is stated explicitly but there are subtle indicators that a dire outcome awaits man should he return to this particular urban setting.

Forget Me Not by N.O.A. Rawle is told mainly through dialogue. A scorned girlfriend seeks revenge on her ex-boyfriend via flowers which are not the innocent bouquets that they seem. Her wish appears to be granted but then she in turn receives an unexpected gift which gives a nice twist or pause for thought at the end. I enjoy stories with a twist or clever come-uppance and we haven’t had that many lately. The few we have had have unfortunately included rather flat or too-often used examples which have resulted in their rejection. If you have a twist make sure it’s not cliché.

I managed to see Pet Sematary last week and thoroughly enjoyed it. I also saw The Silence on Netflix having read the book by Tim Lebbon. The book was excellent but I was disappointed that Netflix switched the setting from the UK to the US. I know it’s because of the ‘market’ but it took away a lot of the tension generated by the scenes which took place in the more ‘confined’ space of the UK. It also lost a lot of the nuances in the relationships between the main characters, making them less involving which was a shame.  The US has missed out on the chance to see a lot of beautiful Lake District scenery. For this one, I would say skip the film and read the book, most definitely read the book!

Now reading Pyschoville by Christopher Fowler, wonderfully dark. A great satire on suburban life and the prejudice and bigotry to be found there. Not finished yet but the body count is on the way up! (You can tell I’m on Easter break by the way my reading rate goes up!)

Stephanie Ellis

Editor, Trembling With Fear

I had a write up of all of this week’s tales as Steph was on vacation but she swooped in at the last moment with a write up that put mine to shame. So… I deleted them so you could go off her words instead of mine. Enjoy! (Trust me, you’ll enjoy it better this way!) 

We’ve had a nice influx of drabble after this last week’s newsletter. Thanks so much!

We’ll be getting initial responses to everyone in the coming week once Steph is able to catch up from her time off. I’ve been spending quite a bit of time on drabble myself lately. I have the writing itch but no time to put pen to page outside of 100 words at a time (or usually 150ish that have to somehow be cut by a third…)

‘Trembling With Fear’ Is Horror Tree’s weekly inclusion of shorts and drabbles submitted for your entertainment by our readers! As long as the submissions are coming in, we’ll be posting every Sunday for your enjoyment.

Black Khakis

Allan noticed the figure standing at the back of the room, a human outline in pale gas flame blue, beyond the sea of heads bobbing in conversation.  As quickly as it appeared, the figure vanished.  Probably some lighting effect, tossed off by the staff of an eccentric coffee joint.  Allan saved his work, closed his laptop, and paid up.  A stacked agenda of multiple priorities awaited him at the office.

            He got into his car and headed down Sixth.

            Sharply, from the backseat: “In a hurry this time?”

            Allan jerked the wheel and nearly sideswiped a parked car.  The face in the rearview mirror smirked—a thirtyish male face, on a head of dark brown hair, attached to an average-sized body clad in black khakis, top and bottom.

            “The fuck?” Allan spluttered.

             “Oh, I don’t blame you,” the passenger chuckled.  “But I’m not going anywhere, except where you are.”

            “Who are you?” Allan shouted.  The man smiled and moved his eyes about.

Allan whipped the car around onto Rockford and lurched to a stop in front of some old apartments.  “Look,” he said, his voice defeating the quivers and entering genuine pissed-off territory, “if you’re trying to carjack me, you kinda suck at it.  And you’re getting out of my car, right now.”

            The khaki man smiled.  “Am I, now?”

            “Yes, you are.”  Allan got out and jerked open the back door.  The stranger didn’t budge.  Allan sighed, grabbed him by his epaulets, and yanked him out.  He hit the pavement on his belly and rolled.

            Allan stared.  He’d been in a few scraps, but he’d never manhandled anyone before.

            The khaki man propped himself up on his elbows and began laughing.  “Now that takes it, man.  Really does.”

            “Okay!” Allan bellowed.  “You’ve apparently had your fun.”  He thought of McKinney and Erland, the office wiseasses who seemed to needle him for no good reason.  “If those guys put you up to this, you can tell them it tanked.  Miserably.”

            The khaki man sat up in the street, his laughter gone.  “What guys?  This is strictly between you and me.”

            Allan looked away for a second.  “Well, that’d make perfect sense if not for the small problem that I don’t know who the fuck you are!”

            The man in black khakis rose and dusted himself off.  His voice became dire.  “Allan, I’ve been in your world longer than I care to admit.  This, in spite of the fact that in your hands I never seem to make it further than a couple of lines before you either kill me off or kill the whole story.”  He spat on the pavement.  “The guy who, that’s all I’ve ever been.  The guy who does what—flickers in and out, sits on his ass, maybe mouths a word or two, and wears the stupidest fucking clothes you can think of?”  He spread his arms.  “Get a good look, Allan, because this is me, every time you call me forth.  It’s the same in the back of your mind.  Like black goddamn khakis!”

He ambled toward the driver door and held out a hand.  “Keys now, and get in.  If I can’t have any better, then you don’t get to, either.  Not until I say so.”

            Allan obeyed.  He didn’t care what might happen.  He feared the man in the black khakis.  He needed him.

Exploring

In the middle of a weed-choked meadow there were droning grasshoppers, a junkyard with old things, and a small held-together-by-spit-and-glue shack. Glimmers of sunlight flickered where rust hadn’t crawled yet, a lure through waist-high grass to a rotting, lopsided porch. Her heart pounded; she’d discovered a whole place by herself!

 

The door swung. Squeaked. There was a metallic scent in the air. A doorway, hanging open. A porcelain sink washed in mud. A mattress browned with mold. A russet knife. Then, a whimper of creaking wood. Another.

 

She turned, fled, running until breathing became pain, a knife in her side.

 

J.A. Hammer

J.A. Hammer lives off coffee (mostly Dead Eyes) and stress in the wild concrete city of Tokyo, where zombies are living, using the train lines every day. If you see the name CoffeeQuills online, that’s J.A. Hammer’s alter-ego, and they’re mostly safe to talk to (bites will only happen in the name of science). The cake is not a lie (but you must get it yourself).

Forget Me Not

“A grave decision.” Her voice was as icy as the florist’s was humid.

“I know.”

The ad proclaimed ‘Love life poisoned? Sex life wilted? Forget Me Not’

“I tailor plants to your needs.”

I’d never been vetted buying flowers before.

“Darren dumped me.” I blurted, “When the Tempting Temp was hired.”

“Allergy? Cardiac weakness?”

“Me not him…”

“Aconite then – paralysis, heart failure — anonymous delivery?” 

*

“Darren’s sick today, it’s Valentine’s too.” said TT, “But this is for you.”

The bouquet on my desk sported a Forget Me Not card with TT’s bubble scrawl, “To ease the pain. Darren xoxo.”

 

N.O.A. Rawle

N.O.A. Rawle regularly burns the midnight oil to get the world in her head in print. A Brit located in Thessaly, her work appears in numerous anthologies and magazines in print and on the web. For more information, find her at www.noarawle.blogspot.gr, follow her on Twitter @N.O.A.Rawle or Instagram as noarawle and like her on Facebook as N.O.A Rawle.

The Unthawing

All-encompassing white melds ground to sky as scientists search yet again for signs of a thaw. Trains remain frozen to tracks, vehicles entombed in snow, the river a glistening ribbon of ice.

A helicopter hovers above lines of skeletal trees. The outline of buildings slowly materialising from the white-out. The City is almost unrecognisable. Its population long gone, forced out by hunger, belongings abandoned, scattered to the wind.

Yet along the verdigris rooftops brooding creatures stir. Their grotesque faces keeping watch, waiting for the interloper’s return. And from stone perches encircling the City gargoyles wing’s spread in preparation of flight.

CR Smith

CR Smith is an artist and writer living in the UK. Her work has been published by Ellipsis Zine, Spelk Fiction, Visual Verse, Glove Lit Zine, Train Lit Mag and The Cabinet of Heed. It is also to be found in several anthologies including, The Infernal Clock, Drabbledark: An Anthology of Dark Drabbles, Chronos: An Anthology of Time Drabbles, the Trembling With Fear: Year One Anthology, and The Infernal Clock Deadcades Anthology. A poetry anthology, Fourteen, and a Stickleback pamphlet are due to be published in 2019 by The Hedgehog Poetry Press. Her artwork has graced both the cover of Déraciné A Gothic Literary Magazine, issue 2, and the inside pages of issues 2 & 3.
