Theme: Short horror stories that explore the “dark carnival” concept.
Quill & Crow Publishing House is opening submissions for our second anthology for 2022, Carnival Macabre: An Anthology of Gothic Horror, due to be released in May.
For this collection, we are looking for short horror stories (5,000 – 8,000 words) that explore the “dark carnival” concept. Think H.H. Holmes during Chicago’s World Fair (Columbian Exposition), horror at a 1920s Boardwalk, or even an eerie Victorian tale. This anthology will be more open to horror themes, but we’re looking for substance over gore. As always, keep those Gothic undertones.
