NOTE: This market has a monthly limit on the number of submissions it can read. If the Submittable page says "There are presently no open calls for submissions" that means the limit was reached, checked back next month. For the sake of managing the listing, I am not going to close for every time this happens, because it's easy to fall behind on updates.

FICTION: We want your best. But then, doesn’t everyone? We print both short stories and flash fiction. We are looking for horror, dark speculative fiction and noir. No specific sub-genres or themes, just good stories. That being said, we prefer the Shining over the Dark Half. Excessive gore and sexuality should be avoided unless it is essential to the story. We are not taking vampire or zombie stories at this time.
