Ontology Books

Ontology Books is seeking submissions for its upcoming anthology A Darkness Visible focused on postmodern horror.

Postmodern literature has often been an ill-defined concept. Critics have cited the deconstruction of narrative, inter-textual storytelling, and the subversion of genre conventions in attempting to define what “postmodern” constitutes. Others have noted the interplay of high and popular culture, dark humor, and literary experimentation as hallmarks of the postmodern. It is safe to say that “postmodern” is a slippery concept open to multiple interpretations and meanings.

This anthology will explore the inter-relationship between the postmodern and horror.
