GHOSTLEY BOOKS considers submissions of Horror, Slipstream, Fabulism, Dark Fantasy, Cross-Genre, and related literature. This is a call for manuscripts–both novels and story collections. There should be something dark about your writing--ghosts are optional. Your story may be set in any era past, present, future, or imaginary. Traditional as well as experimental narratives and non-narratives considered. Evil should be depicted as counterfeit to a higher good.
