Taking Submissions: Urban Horror

Urban Horror

The fine editors over at Morpheus Tales have let us know about this anthology that they are putting together.

Under the city lights, unforeseen danger can erupt at any moment. As we learn from the news each day, monsters do exist, ones with human faces, and they walk among us. On a crowded street corner or waiting quietly in a bustling subway, could we ever recognize them? Some whisper of curious urban legends and supernatural horrors hidden beneath the city’s visible surface, but is there truth to them?

City nights. Urban nightmares. What terrors stalk the city streets and alleys of your imagination?

You may use any city, real or fictional, but the setting must be urban, and the horrific element must be present.

Submissions should be 500-3,000 words in length, and one submission at a time. Attach submissions as a Word or RTF file, and include “Urban Horror” in the title of the email.
