This anthology is for tales that feature decidedly inhuman monsters that have been sought out and challenged, befriended, protected, or stolen from their own grounds, roots exposed like naked bone. I want writers to spawn a nightmare with sharp claws.
Wishlist: Dark fantasy and horror are a given, but I would especially like to see genre-chimeras: fairytale horror, gothic fantasy, supernatural horror, cosmic horror, and similar hybrids. Experimental narratives and silver-tongued monsters who bite back with humor are most welcome.
This listing is permanently closed for submissions. This may mean one of several things:
It was always planned to be a limited-time project, such as a one-time anthology, and the limited-time submission window has ended.
The publisher has stated that they are permanently closed, or on hiatus with wording that makes it sound permanent.
The publication website is down in a way that appears to be permanent, and we haven't been able to find a new website for them.
The publication website is not down, but it appears to have been inactive for more than a year.
