Stories that read fast. Don’t bog the tale down with a lot of explication. Stories set in the contemporary world, rather than historical fiction or tales set in fantasy/science fiction landscapes. Stories that present your protagonist’s encounter with the horrific, disturbing, uncanny, weird, macabre, and/or grotesque. Stories that are character-focused. That encounter should have some impact upon your protagonist’s outlook and/or actions as the story unfolds. Stories that succeed by using concrete detail to show what happens and convey why it is important, rather than trying to tell the reader why. Resist the urge to explain. Originality. Creature-features are welcome, but your own monsters will probably be an easier sell than vampires, zombies, werewolves, et. al.
