About

The Dark Krypt is searching for strong fiction with solid characters and plot that both scare and entertain. We welcome a wide variety of horror tales including subtle horror, psychological, supernatural, dark sci-fi, dark fantasy, and cross-genre (and some experimental). Tales are not restricted to serious horror, but may also be satirical. Stories featuring vampires, werewolves, serial killers, and the like, must have an original fresh twist and be particularly terrifying, interesting, and/or unusual to catch our attention and hold it. Rummage in the darkest recesses of your mind and find out what frightens you most -- even if it's funny. Have a good time writing the story from the edge of your seat and we’ll have fun reading it from the edge of ours.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • For novel/collection publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via or email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
