Sirens Call Publications is pleased to announce the open call for the 29th issue of The Sirens Call…
For this issue, we’re looking for your best horror stories falling under the theme of
Forget Christmas – Halloween is the most wonderful time of the year!
For this issue, we’re looking for horror fiction and poetry that takes place on, or is about, Halloween. No matter your yarn, the culmination of the piece must be October 31st – the night the veil is at its thinnest.
Your tale or poetry should be creepy. It can be creature oriented, kitchy, have a dark humor element, a romantic slant, be a slasher piece, paranormal, psychological, steam-punk, sci-fi, or… whatever! Simply put, if your story is about Halloween and contains a heavy horror element, it will most likely fit the bill for this issue.
Keep it below the word count, stay away from our three taboos, and let your wicked imagination run wild on All Hallows Eve!
*We do not publish works containing pedophilia, bestiality, or descriptive/graphic rape scenarios
