Thuggish Itch: Theme Park

What they want:
Theme park, amusement park, fun fair or carnival - no matter what you call them, they are always a great way to escape from the ho hum of your regular life. From roller coasters to dodgem cars, ring toss to log flumes, there is always plenty of fun and excitement to be had (and plenty of opportunities for you to write some terrific speculative fiction).

Think roller coasters and amusement rides. Think loose lap-bars and dark tunnels. Think long lines, carousels and food poisoning. Try to think outside the box and give us something that would wouldn't have seen before.

Thuggish Itch is our horror, sci-fi and speculative fiction collection. Please make sure that your story falls within one of these genres. Be original. We also encourage new and unpublished writers to take the leap and get in touch.
Deadline: December 28, 2018
Length: 1,000-4,000 words
Payment: AU$5.00 for stories under 2000 words / AU$10.00 for anything above 2000 words

Nightmare Press Animal Horror Anthology

What they want:
For those interested in submitting, this anthology is animal horror themed. That means it can be any sort of horror involving animal attacks. Consider it like natural horror only minus the plants (and no Kaiju stories, for now; that might be a later anthology)--but we will accept insects--hybrids, too (including half-human/half-animal). Think books like The Rats, The Birds, Jaws, Watchers, Ursa Major, Ratman's Notebook, and of course, the works of Guy N. Smith.
Deadline: January 1, 2019
Length: Up to 10,000 words
Payment: $20 + print contributor copy
Submission Guidelines: https://www.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1946281795664651&id=1935900000036164

Length: 3,000-8,000 words
