OPEN SUBMISSION: Alone With Your Fear

Sirens Call Publications is pleased to announce a new open submission for a horror anthology titled Alone With Your Fear!

The Call:

AloneWithYourFearIsolation… not just physical, but psychological, emotional; it plays with your mind, drags out your deepest fears, makes them larger than life and far more sinister.

For this call, we’re looking for stories that pit the main character against their own greatest fear. It seems deceptively simple, but be warned – it isn’t. We want the fear to be the overarching theme, so make sure your story contains a hefty dose – if we don’t feel it, the readers won’t either.

Perhaps the best place to write this tale is Alone with Your Fear…

Deadline: September 1, 2016

Word Count: 4,000 – 8,000 words

All submissions MUST be submitted to: Submissions@SirensCallPublications.com

Reading & Evaluation Period: Two to three months after close of the deadline

NO REPRINTS WILL BE CONSIDERED

Payment: Each story selected for inclusion will receive a one-time payment of $25US plus one print copy of the book.

As per our standard guidelines, there will be no stories containing pedophilia, bestiality, or graphic rape accepted.

Please read our full guidelines for submission on our website: www.SirensCallPublications.com

RELEASE: Mental Ward: Experiments | #Horror #Experiments

Sirens Call Publications is pleased to announce its latest release!

Mental Ward: Experiments

MentalWardExperiments_FinalFrontCover_promo

A dank basement, shadow filled hallways, the deep echo of a metal latch being thrown while faint screams are heard… These are the things you might experience in a place where the unspeakable happens, where conscientious action and moral turpitude turn a blind eye in the interest of advancing one’s own personal pursuits in the most deranged and unjustifiable manner. The type of place where power corrupts, and depravity runs rampant among those imbued with it. A place where the unfortunate are abandoned to the devices of those who convince themselves their actions are in the best interest of science.

Mental Ward: Experiments is a collection of ten short stories that demonstrate the worst of humanity’s ambition in the interest of ‘civilized’ advancement. Step into a world where sanity is left behind, and horror is what the doctor ordered!

*This book is a collection of similarly themed yet varying fictitious short stories from multiple authors.

Featuring:

Anomaly – Sarah Doebereiner

Pink Dread – Guy Medley

Rorschach – L.E. White

Bell Haven – Frank Collia

Gingham Curtains and Electric Shock – Gwendolyn Kiste

Alice – Stephanie Nett

A Mutual Understanding – Nica Berry

A Taste for Lunacy – John Pham

Ambrosia – Kyle Yadlosky

No Man’s Land Dance – Vic Kerry

Sirens Call Publications is pleased to announce the release of

Through Clouded Eyes

A Zombie’s Point of View

ThrouCloudedEyes_FinalCover_Front_promoThrough Clouded Eyes: A Zombie’s Point of View: a collection of twelve stories told from the Zombie’s perspective.

They’re shambling toward you, feet dragging on the broken roadway. Arms outstretched, faces slack, they move as if they’re tracking your scent on the wind. You want to run, but you know there’s nowhere to hide.

Aware of their insatiable hunger, fear paralyzes you.  These things were once human, people someone loved. Is there anything left inside them – some sliver of humanity that may save you from this nightmare? Your mind doesn’t want to accept the inevitable, a single thought consumes you: what are they thinking?

With your chance of escape dwindling, you snap out of it and run like hell knowing there is little to no hope; fate is coming for you. Soon you will see what they see Through Clouded Eyes…
