Slaypunk

What they want:
SLAYPUNK: A sub-genre of fictions that features apparatus, devices and methods employed in an effort to capture, dispatch or otherwise combat monsters. The prefix is inspired directly by Saint George and the Dragon as a symbol of monster slaying. The suffix refers to the irreverent way in which this process sometimes occurs, implying immediacy, emergency and the occasional need to do anything possible to just put the damned things down.

This is where you should unleash the action, the clichés and the blood. The requirements here are to include diabolically clever traps, intense use of weapons and final-option strategies that fit with the Slaypunk definition.

Go for action that keeps us riveted to the page, extreme creativity and don't hold back.
Deadline: August 1, 2015
Length: 2,000-8,000 words
Payment: $25 + ebook contributor copy

SNAFU: Future Warfare

What they want:
For this military/sci-fi/horror anthology, we want warriors competing on a futuristic battlefield, fighting against forces threatening humankind, the balance of the galaxies, or life itself. Think Aliens, Halo, Predator, Starship Troopers, and Terminator. Have your heroes defending their way of life against inconceivable odds. Take us along for the ride while your future soldiers take the fight to their enemies. Expect casualties!

We want ORIGINAL military-style combat with strong elements of future technology/sci-fi, and we want horror. Give us fear… suspense and tension… we want originality and speculation about future aspects of war. Most of all we want action, action, ACTION! We want something jaw-droppingly amazing.
Deadline: August 13, 2015
Length: 2,000-10,000 words

Splatter Chronicles

What they want:
We are looking for stories in the style of exploitation and slasher movies from the 1970s and 1980s. Basically, if your story follows the "slasher formula" (blood, boobs, and gore) we're interested in reading it.

As our name suggests, all stories should have a good amount of blood and gore. However, don't simply try to gross us out with crazy kills. While we do seek stories with a good amount of violence we also want to see characters that are interesting, relatable, and who propel the story's action.
Length: 7,500-60,000 words
Payment: Royalties
