The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Shotgun: Strange Stories Magazine

Shotgun Strange Stories is currently seeking horror stories that fall under any of the sub-genres that currently exist. We look for stories of Terror, Horror, and, of course, the Gross Out. Suspense is a big plus! We are particularly interested in working with new and up-and-coming writers who want the experience of publishing as well as a fun print copy to show for it. That was the reason Shotgun was put out in the first place and we’d like to keep that idea alive.

The vibe of this magazine is a mix between Tales of the Crypt horror comics, Creepshow (the movie or the current show on Shudder via Amazon) and Tales from the Darkside, and various horror anthologies, like Dark Forces, The Dark Descent, Silver Scream, and Prime Evil. Any horror story is welcome at any time! And please, while we all must remain professional, it is important to remember to relax and have fun. That’s what this venue is all about!
