The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Tales to Terrify

Please feel free to challenge the definition of horror. Standard tropes and monsters are welcome as well as the blood, sex and gore. Scare us with your gothic stories of haunted buildings, but at the same time do your best to honor the natural occurring diversity within the genre. We want to be terrified by your concepts, by your implications and the possibilities your story hints at. We’re in need to read works that threaten to bleed into our reality and corrupt something as ordinary as a toaster. Terrify us. Scare us. Make our breath stop and disturb our minds. All is allowed as long as it’s well-conceived and well-writte
