  • Sex is fine, but total erotica and torture porn are not
  • Hate speech or bigotry…unless comeuppance is delivered to the character in some way.

All submissions are welcome from writers of every race, religion, nationality, gender, and sexual orientation.

Simultaneous submissions are allowed (submitting the same stories to other publishers at the same time).

Multiple submissions are not allowed. One submission is allowed until acceptance or rejection before you are eligible to submit another story. Any multiple submissions while the initial one is still under review will be ignored.

All fiction must be submitted to the following email address (or click on the link):


In the subject of your email, please write “FICTION SUBMISSION”

Attach your story document to the email.

In the body of the email, please provide the following details:

  1. Your name or pen name
  2. Story title
  3. Word count
  4. Any publishing history for reprints
  5. Your biography
  6. Any pertinent web links

Response Times

Most submissions will receive a response within 30 days on average, although it could take more time for consideration purposes.

Please do not respond to rejection letters. However, you can submit a different story at that time if you’d like.


Feel free to challenge the definition of horror. Standard tropes and monsters are welcome just as much as the blood, sex and gore. Scare us with your gothic stories of haunted buildings, but do your best to honor the diversity within the genre.

We want to be terrified by your concepts, by your implications, by your story’s possibilities. We want to read works that threaten to bleed into our reality and corrupt something as ordinary as a toaster.

Scare us. Make our breath stop and disturb our minds. All is allowed as long as it’s well-conceived and well-written.

Terrify the hell out of us with your tales.
