The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Dark Discoveries



Description
Must be in the Horror/Dark Fantasy/Dark Sci-Fi and Dark Mystery veins (no straight Science Fiction, Mystery, Fan Fiction, or Sword & Sorcery). Open to Mythos stories, but they have to be very good.

Looking for well-written, powerful, original ideas and new twists on old horror conventions. Vampire, zombie and werewolf stories are a tough sell, but we are open to those with an original twist. Especially looking for stories that examine the darker side of the human condition, but we are also interested in supernatural tales. New writers are welcome to submit.
