For the fifty-third issue of The Sirens Call, we’ll be accepting short stories, flash fiction, micro-fiction, drabbles, and poetry that fit within the horror/dark fiction genre. We welcome reprints as long as you hold the copyright to the piece.

Your piece can be scary, sullen, emotive, freaky, elegant, bizarre, have a dark satirical edge to it, or be flat out terrifying!

The basic rules:

  • Write the piece well.
  • It must be primarily horror/dark fiction oriented
  • No pieces containing coronavirus/covid-19 or political references will be accepted.
  • Don’t break our set-in-stone taboos – NO pedophilia, NO bestiality, and NO descriptive rape scenarios.

Beyond that, be creative, be morbid, be vicious, be clever; show us what you’ve got, and if it fits our criteria, we’ll offer it up to our readership of 35,000 readers!

Promo_Cover_for_Ezine

Death of the Year/December 2020

As is our custom, we are ending 2020 with our Death of the Year issue. We’re calling for pieces that pay tribute to the end of life in the most heinous ways possible. You may choose to honor death in dark fashion by horrifying with it, respecting it, or fighting it to the bitter end; and we do mean the bitter end as your piece should contain an unnatural death, mortal or otherwise.

We are NOT looking for acts of crime or mundane content. So please, no murdered wives who were planning to file for divorce, or pleasant stories of grandma passing in her sleep – they will be declined.

We’ll be accepting short stories, flash fiction, drabbles, and poetry that fit the theme within the horror/dark fiction genre. We welcome reprints as long as you hold the copyright to the piece.

Your piece can be scary, sullen, emotive, freaky, elegant, bizarre, have a dark satirical edge to it, or be flat out creepy as hell!

The basic rules:

  • Write the piece well.
  • It must be primarily horror/dark fiction oriented
  • No pieces containing coronavirus/covid-19 or political references will be accepted.
  • Don’t break our set-in-stone taboos – NO pedophilia, NO bestiality, and NO descriptive rape scenarios.

Beyond that, be creative, be morbid, be vicious, be clever; show us what you’ve got, and if it fits our criteria, we’ll offer it up to our readership of 35,000 readers!

Mental Ward: Experiments

MentalWardExperiments_FinalFrontCover_promo

We’ll take fine care of your loved one – no need to worry…

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!

Featuring:

Anomaly, Sarah Doebereiner
Dread Pink, 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

Monster Brawl

MonsterBrawl_Front_Cover_final_promo

It’s time to let the monsters loose!

For this book, we collected stories of monsters doing epic battle with other monsters! The beasts could be classical by design with a unique twist, or they could be spawned straight from the author’s imagination. The only rule: there must be a clear-cut winner at the end of each story; one of the creatures had to die!

Some of the stories in this collection pit a single monster against another, while others are all-out gang warfare. Some are campy, some serious, but all a fight for the ages!

It’s time to get your game face on for twelve tales worthy of the title Monster Brawl!

Featuring:

Market Forces, Ben Howels
The Imp, the Gadfly, and the Hourglass, Joshua Skye
The Matriarch, Mya Lairis
Monster Milk, Hunter Shea
To Fight by the Light of the Silvery Moon, Scott Harper
Vices, Sergio Pereira
Altered Beasts, Jennifer L. Barnes
Save It for the Cameras, T.R. North
Whoever Fights Monsters…, Patrick Loveland

The Rift Ripper, Kevin Holton
Kingdom of the Spiders, Paul M. Feeney

Wicked Deeds
Witches, Warlocks, Demons and Other Evil Doers

WD_WWDED_Final_FrontCover

 

Sometimes wicked people do wicked things simply because they can…

The twelve stories in Wicked Deeds tell tales of witches and warlocks with ill intent, devilish demons bent on destruction, and other doers of evil who make the world a terrifying place.

What is a mother to do when her daughter is gifted but lives under the thumb of her fanatical preacher husband who will brook no talk of the supernatural? What of a demon so desperate to free himself of a trap that he will force another to repeat his atrocities and condemn a young boy to his demonic fate? Or maybe the story of a crotchety old witch with a score to settle against the town she lives in is more to your liking – what evil will the seemingly harmless crony call upon when faced with an ultimatum?

If you’re looking for wicked people with supernatural abilities doing wicked things, this is the collection for you!

Featuring:

A Hundred Crimson Candles, B. David Spicer
Buyers and Cellars, Devin Darcy
Ghostville!, Darren French
The Devil’s in the Details, David O’Hanlon
Shiv, Jennifer Melzer
Puppy Farm, Josie Dorans
The Bone Thief of Belheim City, Kevin Holton
Broomstick and a Pointed Hat, Jonathan D. Nichols
Inquire Within, Mark Christopher Lane
Witches on Salem, Brian D. Mazur
