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
Payment: AUD4c/word + contributor copy in each format released

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

Dark Warrior

What they want:
For our first anthology we want horrific stories centralizing around a ‘dark warrior’. The dark warrior can be the protagonist, villain, side character, etc. but it must be integral to the story, without the dark warrior, there wouldn’t be a story.

We are flexible about sub-genre, but it should be horror primarily.

So send us your tales of modern demon hunters consumed with vengeance so fierce they become worse then the creatures they hunt. Show us undead warriors who possess a loyalty so strong, that not even death itself can prevent them from fighting for their land and country. Terrify us with unholy legions of dark sentinels descending upon the helpless in the name of their diabolical overlords.
Deadline: July 31, 2015
Length: 2,500-7,000 words
Payment: $1, 1% royalties for 1 year + ebook contributor copy
Submission Guidelines: http://www.thedarkwarrior.com/?page_id=15
