As is our custom, we choose to end the year on a cheery note – Death. Like all things, 2018 must come to an end, and here at SCP we’ll be celebrating by honoring both timely and untimely demise.
For the 42nd issue of The Sirens Call eZine, we’re looking for your darkest, most morose or ferocious stories, poems, and/or prose featuring works that revolve around the theme of death.
Your piece can be creepy, sullen, emotive, freaky, elegant, bizarre, have a dark-humor edge to it, or be flat out scary as hell!
The basic rules:
- Write the piece well.
- It must be primarily horror/dark fiction.
- Don’t break our set-in-stone taboos – NO pedophilia, NO bestiality, and NO descriptive rape scenarios.
Let’s give 2018 a proper send off and celebrate it’s demise in style! Send us your dark fiction and horror pieces, and if they qualify, we’ll make sure about 35,000 people have the chance to read them!
