About

Negative Space will once again focus on the survival horror genre of video games, made popular by such legendary franchises as Resident Evil, Silent Hill, and Dead Space. Although the term "survival horror" was first coined for Capcom's 1996 release of Resident Evil, it is now a widely used term in video game verbiage. Overall, our main goal of this anthology is to incorporate elements of the survival horror tradition into narrative fiction writing. So, what kind of stories are we looking for this time around? Exactly the same as last time. We want stories with deadly monsters, eerie encounters, makeshift weapons, and unspeakable horrors. We want stories that start with events already in motion, or in media res. We want interesting characters facing ever-increasing odds, relying on their wits and skills to survive. And we want plenty of suspense along with memorable settings--both of which are very important and often overlooked in this type of story.
