About

Fiction that is dark in nature. This leaves things pretty open as far as subject matter. Some of the tried and true horrors (zombies, werewolves, vampires) will be a tough sale, but I’ll take a look as long as it shows me something new. I like stories with time-twists (like Donnie Darko and The Butterfly Effect). Futuristic Science Fiction. Ghosts. I don’t care for serial killers unless you can make them as cool as, say, Otis Driftwood and Captain Spaulding. I have no problem with graphic violence or gore or sexual situations, but they must be an essential part of the story, not added for the sake of shock value. I enjoy different time settings (especially past) and locales. I also like alt-history stories. If you have something you believe is unusual, try me.

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.
