Terror-Tree's Pun Book of Horror Stories

A project of Fringeworks (see other related projects).

Do not submit here! This project is permanently closed to submissions. We provide the following information as an archive.


Firstly, this anthology is what it says on the tin. As the title suggests, we are looking for stories which feature bad puns in the title and contain horror or horror comedy elements. For instance, the lead story in the anthology will be ‘I Know What You Did Last Supper’, a stalker/horror story set during the Last Supper with Jesus and friends. We are looking for new and original twists on this theme with surprising elements and we expect no copy-cat ideas. Be fun but most of all be unique. We expect this anthology will appeal to writers of horror, SF, fantasy and comedy.
