Nephilim Press

What they want:
We are primarily interested in science fiction, fantasy, horror, crime, and literature (that’s right, literature).

As far as non-fiction, we are interested in true-crime, paranormal research and investigations, the occult, serial killers, secret societies, and just about anything that is considered to fall under the horror, creepy, unexplained, and downright disturbing genres.

We are interested in horror in all its forms and subjects with a few exceptions. No teenage romance novels that are similar to the stories with monsters that sparkle in the sunlight type stuff. We’re looking for hardcore horror that pushes the envelope. 
Length: Over 50,000 words
Payment: Royalties

Welcome to the Alpaca-lypse

What they want:
We are looking for animal themed apocalypse stories. The animals can be the cause of the apocalypse, the salvation from the apocalypse, or just the pet that really helps someone survive as the world falls around them. The story can even be from the animals point of view.

We will be lose with the definition of apocalypse, but know that we prefer larger scale apocalypse stories for this anthology. The main key is that the story is amazing, compelling, with great characters, and is focused on an animal and an apocalypse of some kind.
Deadline: January 31, 2019
Length: 2,000-7,000 words

Tell-Tale Press: Creatures

What they want:
We are looking for short stories about any kind of creatures you want: animals, insects, arachnids (all giant or otherwise), dinosaurs, aliens, monsters, cryptids, legends, mythical, mythological, whatever strikes your fancy. We really want you to go outside of the usual box that we see in fiction. Sure, you can have classic vampires or aliens, werewolves or unicorns, but the story needs to be new and fresh, something that hasn't been thought of before or hasn't been worked with a lot. The story should fit in any of the the genres of fantasy, horror, mystery, and science-fiction.

We are also looking for novelettes. We will be picking ONE novelette as the final story for each genre anthology. Your novelette should be something that really catches us, perhaps that touches our hearts, horrifies us in a new way, has a profound vision of technology or the future, or baffles us with a twist or shocking revelation.
Deadline: March 4, 2019
Length: 500 to 5000 words as a short story only or 7000 to 10,000 words as a novelette only
Payment: 500 to 1000 words (flash fiction): $5, 1000 to 3000 words (microfiction or short stories): $10, 3000 to 5000 words (short stories): $25, 7000 to 10,000 words (novelettes): $50

Hidden Histories

What they want:
A secret history (or shadow history) is a revisionist interpretation of either fictional or real history which is claimed to have been deliberately suppressed, forgotten, or ignored by established scholars. Your tale can be based in the real world, past, present, or future, as long as it has a speculative fiction element. We're not exactly looking for alternate history, but there can be a fork in the road timewise. 
Deadline: January 31, 2019
Length: 1,500-3,000 words
Payment: 6 cents/word + ebook contributor copy
