And yet the passing of another year, sad as it may be, but for us horror types, plenty of fodder on offer to creep it up! For the sixtieth issue of The Sirens Call Zine, we’re looking for horrifying and well-constructed tales of horror and dark fiction. And as it is the death of the year, we are, as always, celebrating with the sub-theme of death. That means stories containing a vile or supernatural death within them. We’ll be accepting short stories, flash 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, have a dark satirical edge to it, or rattle us to the core! #darkfic #flashfic #microfic #darkpoetry – visit sirenscallpub.com for details.
