For the forty-seventh issue of The Sirens Call eZine, we’re looking for works of horror and dark fiction. As it is the Halloween issue, feel free to write something ghastly to shock even the most heinous of tricksters!
We’ll be accepting short stories, flash fiction, drabbles, and poetry provided they 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-humor edge to it, or be flat out creepy as hell!
The basic rules:
- Write the piece well.
- The piece must be primarily horror/dark fiction.
- Don’t break our set-in-stone taboos – NO pedophilia, NO bestiality, and NO descriptive rape scenarios.
We’re looking for a mixture of pieces that speak to the season, as well as some that are just damned good writing. So, be creative, be bold, show us what you’ve got, and if it fits our criteria, we’ll offer it up to our readership of approximately 35,000!
