Tenebrous Press

Tenebrous embraces the notion of NEW WEIRD HORROR. We love stories that are proudly Pulp but not easily constrained by a single genre. We go by gut feeling a lot.

Brave, relentless Horror stories that start with a punch to the sternum and don’t let up.

Weird Cosmic, Folk Horror, Cult Creeps, Escape Rooms, Body Horror, and anything else you can think of that's fresh and sufficiently Weird

Genre splicing. Nod to the past; embrace progress.

Break our hearts and quease our stomachs in one go.

The Fantastic grounded in Real World Evil. Reality gets as ugly as any Horror story.

Rich characterization. Buried secrets. Drama. Ethical and moral dilemmas. Philosophy and theology. Crisis and identity.
