The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Misery Tourism - Fiction (Go to Poetry)



Description
Weird, outsider works of fiction or poetry. Obviously, they should deal with human misery in some way, whether that means a highly personal memoir about mental illness, a poem about searching for the waterlogged dead post-Hurricane Katrina, or an Howardian gritty escapist fantasy about genocidal barbarians on Mars. Just remember, when all was said and done, Robert E. Howard blew his brains out in a hospital parking lot.
