Doorways Magazine 7

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


Paranormal, supernatural, contemporary fantasy, new fabulist, magic realism, shock suspense, sci-horror, character oriented: We like Colin and F. Paul Wilson, J.N. and Jack Williamson, Stephen King and Joe Hill, and of course, Charles Beaumont, Ray Bradbury, and Richard Matheson, who taught so much to so many of us. If your subjects and verbs are not only not in agreement but cannot tolerate each other, if your spelling is remarkably creative, and you have a decorative approach to comma and apostrophe usage, we’re not the right market for you’re kreashuns’. (Get it? Sic! Huh?) We’ve recently accepted stories by Stephen Graham Jones, John Everson, Wayne Allen Sallee, Stephen Mark Rainey, Richard Payne, Bruce Holland Rogers, and Joel Arnold, all of whom write good stories. If you do, too, then let DOORWAYS have a look.

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.
