The New Flesh: A Literary Tribute to David Cronenberg

Posted by Randi on Thursday, December 13, 2018

What they want:
David Cronenberg is one of the greatest cult-film directors of all time. Through his varied and highly influential career, he has managed to forge a path through cinema that includes films of horror, crime, psychological period pieces, and even a straightforward car-racing movie. His name is synonymous with Body-Horror, and for good reason. Our aim is to celebrate the man with an anthology of short stories influenced by his body of work. If you write weird fiction, horror, bizarro, crime, transgressive, or otherwise dark fiction and you love the films (and single novel!) of David Cronenberg, we would love to see a story from you. There’s a reason the term ‘Cronenbergian’ exists, we want stories that fit that vibe.
