The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Lovecraft in a Time of Madness

As the title suggests, we're looking for stories of cosmic horror that celebrate the ideas of H.P Lovecraft! While it is not necessary for submissions to form a part of Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos, or other works, it is necessary for there to be some connection to the ideas and themes he grappled with in them.

While Lovecraft is known for, among other things, his own particular writing style, we're not looking for stories that try to mimic his prose! Nor are we looking to play a game of "Lovecraft Bingo"! Rather, we're looking for stories that are faithful to the spirit of Lovecraftian horror. Show us to the dark corners of the earth, and the mind, but show us your particular take on it!

These stories need not be set in our past, present or even our future. If you think you can do justice to a retelling of folklore or legend, go for it! We'd love to see stories about King A'rtur'og and his knights of the non-Euclidian table, or Sir Gawain and the Eldritch Knight!

Got a story about Anarchists v the Cult of Cthulhu in London during the industrial revolution? Let's see it!
