Timber Ghost Press is proud to present The Big Book of Things That Go Bump in the Night: A Collection of Utah Horror. With the help of the Utah Horror Writers*, Timber Ghost Press is excited to be publishing the ninth collection of Utah horror.
We are seeking well-crafted stories and poems suitable for a middle-grade audience. We’re looking for stories and poems in the same vein as Neil Gaiman, Victoria Schwab, Patrick Ness, Holly Black, and R.L. Stine. Please ensure your story/poem is suitable for a younger audience. If we deem the story too extreme for children, it will be rejected. For this anthology, all entries must have a Utah connection, either on the part of the author or the story itself (it is called Utah horror for a reason).
