Dark Moon Digest



We accept flash fiction, short stories, novelettes, novellas and novels. Subject matter must be of the horror genre. No science fiction, fantasy or slasher style work. Violence should be in proportion to the style of the manuscript and not just thrown in for shock value. The same can be said for gratuitous sex and foul language. Everything has its place and good writing expresses that.
