Dirge is looking for speculative fiction with a dark angle. Sci-fi, fantasy, horror, alternate history and related genres are welcome.Length: 2,000-4,000 words
While dark fantasy and horror are the safest bets, we're interested in any narrative which contains elements of the surreal, or disturbing. We like to feel unsettled after reading your story, whatever it's about.
What we're interested in: Creep (Writing fiction that makes people uncomfortable? We want to see it.). Fresh takes on old tales. Non-Lovecraftian cosmic horror (think Jeff Vandermeer's Southern Reach trilogy). Dark fantasy, and experimental horror. Kick us in the feels.
