The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Boneyard Soup Magazine



Description
Note: the shorter length category is reprint-only, and so is based on the reprint payment rate.

We publish in the horror and dark fantasy genres and are open to almost anything you can imagine within those categories. Traditional Gothic. Pulpy horror with an '80s vibe. Body horror. Ghost stories. Horror comedy. Don't be afraid to submit if your tale falls within the horror and dark fantasy genres
