The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Weirdpunk Books



Description
e love genres like body horror, cosmic horror, folk horror, weird lit, splatterpunk, and transgressive fiction. We especially like when people mix any of them together. Give us an amazing body horror tale in a folk horror setting or a cosmic splatterpunk horror story. Mix it up!

We call what we publish, "Weird Horror," largely eschewing standard horror tropes and narratives in favor of stranger, more cerebral, visceral, or challenging story types. We're not looking for standard zombie or vampire stories (unless you write something really goddamn interesting with those involved), think more the weirder end of the horror spectrum (see below).

Think about how the horror genre includes things like Friday the 13th and Final Destination (which are fine), but also includes Videodrome and Society (which are amazing). We want stories on that stranger end of things.

We want your own creatures, your own terrors, your own grief, your own nightmares.

We want stories that are deeply human. Take a look at the novellas we’ve published, all of them, no matter how weird, bizarre, or fucked up, have human, emotional centers.
