NOTE: Do not submit again until 20 days after rejection. Unnerving Magazine accepts short story submissions of horror, dark science fiction (light), dark fantasy, crime, thriller, suspense, and dark literary. Generally leaning strongly toward horror over other genres. Sex, gore and violence are welcome in moderation (nothing gratuitous). The same goes for bizarro works, nothing too far gone (whatever that means). Please no hard science fiction, sword and sorcery fantasy, erotica, romance, humor that isn’t sinister or literary works that venture so far into experimental that they become nonsense. No cop dramas. No war stories.
