A project of Pill Hill Press

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


We are looking for your most wicked, your most suspenseful, your most horrific stories to fill this bloodbath of a BIG BOOK OF NEW SHORT HORROR collection. This non-themed horror anthology will be big (we’re shooting for over 200,000 words), bold (no holds barred horror) and beautiful (with macabre, custom cover artwork). All submissions with strong elements of horror are welcome as long as the story is well written and disturbing…

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.
