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.
