Dead Stars and Stone Arches: A Collection of Utah Horror - Fiction (Go to Poetry)
Timber Ghost Press

We are seeking well-crafted stories and poems of cosmic horror in the same vein as Lucy A. Snyder, Laird Barron, Algernon Blackwood, Robert W. Chambers, Mary SanGiovanni, Victor LaValle, Betty Rocksteady, and Caitlin R. Kiernan. For this anthology, all entries must have a Utah connection, either on the part of the author or the story itself (it is called Utah horror for a reason).

This listing is permanently closed for submissions. This may mean one of several things:
  • It was always planned to be a limited-time project, such as a one-time anthology, and the limited-time submission window has ended.
  • The publisher has stated that they are permanently closed, or on hiatus with wording that makes it sound permanent.
  • The publication website is down in a way that appears to be permanent, and we haven't been able to find a new website for them.
  • The publication website is not down, but it appears to have been inactive for more than a year.
