We are a quarterly for literary dark fiction, both short stories and flash fiction. We want your best. But then, doesn’t everyone? No specific sub-genres or themes, just good stories. For inspiration, we suggest “The Twilight Zone”, “The Outer Limits”, and LampLight, Vol1 Issue 1 which is free.
We do not accept stories with the following: vampires, zombies, werewolves, serial killers, hitmen, excessive gore or sex.
Length: For length, 1000 words or less, consider it flash fiction; 2000 – 7000 words, consider it short story. In-between? Send it over and we can talk.
Payment: For short stories we pay $150 per story. For flash fiction, we pay $50.
