Elektrik Milk Bath Press Dark Erotic Anthology MATURE CONTENT

A project of Elektrik Milk Bath Press (see other related projects).

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


We are excited to announce that we are open to submissions for an anthology of dark erotic (or is that darkly erotic?) stories. For this project, we are open to multiple genres (and even a little mixing and mashing) including but not limited to dark fantasy, horror, magic realism, literary, and even a little twist of noir. The key words here are dark and erotic—however you want to spin it. While the stories for this book should have an erotic element, there is a lot of territory to cover there and we don’t want to limit you on subject or style. Whether you are just offering a hint of eroticism to a dark tale or writing something more explicit, the story should be enhanced by the eroticism, not written as an afterthought. We’ve said it before… What’s most important to us is a good story; one that has believable characters and good dialogue, stories we want to read again. Have fun with this, get creative, and please send us your very best work.
