All Worlds Wayfarer

What they want:
Show us your best work in any of the speculative genres or their sub-genres:

  • Fantasy
  • Science Fiction 
  • Horror 
  • Magical Realism 
  • Slipstream 
  • Paranormal, Surrealism, Weird Fiction, or any other style with speculative elements.
As long as your story emphasizes characters, themes, or craft, it may be a fit for us.

We're especially fond of: High fantasy without traditional genre races or creatures; fantasy or science fiction that crosses over with horror; unusual takes on common sub-genres (such as post-apocalyptic); rare sub-genres (such as biopunk, solarpunk, or Gothic fantasy); themes exploring identity, purpose, or existence; stories centering platonic relationships; diverse and LGBTQIA+ characters; #OwnVoices; genre-blending stories. What we crave most, however, is sincerity, meaning, and intensity.
Length: 100-5,000 words

Miscreations: Gods, Monstrosities, and Other Horrors

What they want:
What happens when we make monsters? What happens when we confront the monsters inside ourselves? These are the grotesque things that should never have been. These are the beasts that stalk our twisted pasts. These are the ghosts of our own making that haunt our regrets. They’re the blood on our hands. They’re the obsessions in our heads. They’re the vengeance in our hearts. These are Miscreations: Gods, Monstrosities & Other Horrors.

Bram Stoker Award-winning editors Doug Murano and Michael Bailey welcome you to submit your best work for consideration in this anthology, which will launch in early 2020. We’ve already announced two of our contributors—Ramsey Campbell and Usman T. Malik—and will be making more announcements in the coming weeks!
