What they want:
We are currently calling for submissions for a series of horror anthologies – The A-Z of Horror. The series will be based on a variety of themes and will consist of twenty-six books in total. We are looking for short horror stories on each of the themes listed below.

A is for Aliens – We are looking for short horror stories involving extra-terrestrials, for the first book in the series.

B is for Beasts – We are looking for short stories involving beasts; think of creatures lurking in the woods, beneath the sea, or even under your bed! (No werewolves please as this will be the theme of a later book).

C is for Cannibals – We are looking for gruesome short stories involving cannibals. Think native tribes, psychotic farmers, suspicious chefs, or try writing from the cannibal’s point of view.

D is for Demons – We are looking for short stories where the main character is a demon. This could be frightening or even humorous, the more unique the better.
