The Heart of a Devil

Posted by Randi on Wednesday, July 12, 2017

What they want:
For this anthology, we want glimpses into the world of those we love to hate. Monsters, demons, murderers, etc. Are they as evil as they seem? What made them do those horrible things? What was their breaking point? Were they good once or has their heart always been black? A broader take on the fairy tale villains anthology.

Any time period and sub-genre are accepted, however there must be a villain/bad guy as the focus of your story. Villains may be taken from fairy tales, mythology, folklore, monster legends, history, or entirely original.

This is NOT just a horror anthology about villains/evil people.

Get us into the heart of the villains. Make us question if they are really that bad. Help us understand why they do what they do. Show us that underneath their actions, there is something there that could make us empathize with their plight. Go beyond the darkness and evil and help us wonder what's under the surface of those we love to hate.
