Beyond the Bounds of Infinity
Raw Dog Screaming Press

Limited Demographic: marginalized peoples

BEYOND THE BOUNDS OF INFINITY is an anthology, edited by Vaughn A. Jackson & Stephanie Pearre, of cosmic horror and weird tales written by marginalized peoples whose experiences and worldviews have influenced their interpretation of dread. The anthology hopes to bring these diverse perspectives to the forefront of the horror community and, of course, make Lovecraft roll over in his grave!

We are looking for original short stories of weird fiction and cosmic horror that coil up inside us and leave us begging (and fearing) for more. Any genre is fair game so long as it has a twisted knot of horror for a heart. While stories may contain violence, sexuality, and religion, we are not looking for extreme/splatter-punk, erotica, non-fiction, or religious diatribes.

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.
