We are looking for short stories of horror fiction told from the zombie’s point of view. We will consider different, intriguing, and creative spins on the multiple zombie mythos that currently exist. There are many fine zombie oriented anthologies already published, but we’re putting a spin on ours – at least 75% of the story must be told as the zombie from the zombie’s perspective.
We’re giving the undead a chance to tell their tale through your words!
We will not be accepting the following:
- Fan fiction of any variety – no characters, names, places, or homage pieces.
- Preexisting characterization from a story, novella, novel, or series you write.
- Love stories (no matter how fantastic yours is) – this is a horror only anthology.
We encourage you to be as unique as you’d like and bring a new viewpoint to those who have suffered or perhaps sought ZOMBIFICATION!
If you have questions about the details for the call, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org before beginning your piece.
