For writers that traditionally write horror, don’t feel the need to change up your style or themes for our magazine. Just try and think of an engaging way to incorporate science or technology (or science/technology gone wrong) into your existing strengths as a storyteller. Sci-fi horror, cosmic horror, weird fiction, sci-fi thriller, and cyberpunk are some of the more obvious sub-genres to play in, but please feel free to get creative. Pop culture examples that we consider to be the perfect blend of sci-fi and horror would be pretty much any 80s sci-fi movie (The Terminator, Predator, The Thing, They Live, Running Man, Robocop, The Fly, Aliens, etc.), as well as works like The Invisible Man, The Shining, Jurassic Park, Frankenstein, and even aspects of The Matrix and Dune. In our opinion, the alchemy of science fiction and horror has produced some of the best art in the past few decades, so we’re very excited to read what you come up with.
