Dred 1

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


I am seeking quality, character-driven horror/weird fiction/dark fantasy that evokes a sense of dread: great uneasiness, reluctance, or fear in the face of impending evil. I am open to multiple genre/cross genre/ mainstream work: I don't care what you call it so long as it's dreadful. Detailed, focused stories with limited time frames tend to work best. I prefer traditional plot structures. I'll consider experimental fiction, but you'll be swimming upstream. Be original. Traditional monsters and psycho killers are very difficult to breathe new life into. Blood and guts are fine when they build to proper effect, but bear in mind that while explicit violence is generally horrific it often does not evoke dread.

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.
