Hatchet Job

Posted by Randi on Thursday, February 14, 2019

What they want:
This horror anthology, to be edited for Lethe Press by Jerry L. Wheeler, seeks stories that involve one of the traditional tropes of campfire tales and slasher films: the axe murderer. Stories need not focus solely on this antagonist, but all stories must somehow involve this threat or concept. Surprise us by breathing new life into this theme. That said, we anticipate most of the book will be reprints – for which we are offering 2 cents a word. Original work pays 4 cents a word but first query the editor with a synopsis.
Deadline: April 30, 2019
Length: Up to 10,000 words
Payment: 2 cents/word for reprints, 4 cents/word for original work
