Beware the Dark

Posted by Randi on Thursday, May 30, 2013

What they want:
The most important thing we are looking for with fiction is well-written original horror and erotic horror stories. They must grab us and hold our attention. We love stories that are atmospheric and also a little unusual. Be creative and surprise us!

The type of fiction we like is the kind that grabs you from the very beginning and keeps your attention all the way through. It must be well-written and enjoyable. Please don't shock just for shock's sake, make sure the sex, violence, and horror is important to the story and not just there to gross people out. Authors we really like are: Richard Laymon, Ray Garton, Graham Masterton, David J. Schow, Rex Miller, George R. R. Martin, Nancy A. Collins, Dean Koontz, Joe R. Lansdale, Ramsey Campbell, F. Paul Wilson and Bentley Little, to name a few. And to get an idea of the type of erotic horror fiction we like please use the Hot Blood series edited by Jeff Gelb as a reference. The stories in those anthologies are proper erotic horror fiction. We are after erotic horror fiction that is more seductive than sleazy. Please only send us your very best original work, no reprints.

Payment: We pay 0.7 pence (1 cent) per word to a maximum of £35 for unsolicited fiction. Max word limit 5,000 (flexible).  Plus 1 free print copy and digital edition in which your work appears plus a free one year digital subscription starting from the issue after which your work appears in.
