Mason Jar Press is publishing an anthology of horror short stories. We need the stories. Send us your horror. We want stories with an eye on society that speak to larger themes than just murder and mayhem. They should still be considered literary in nature. Think Beloved or “The Lottery” and not something you’d see on Creepypasta (sorry Creepypasta).
We’re looking for stories that show the darkest of humanity. We want killers and the damned. We want polished, literary prose that drips with suspense, elicits gasps, and instills sleeping-with the-lights-on levels of fear. We also want consequences, comeuppance, or at least some twisted form of justice. The stories can be set in any time or place, though we lean toward the contemporary. Surprise us. Make a chill go down our spine. But most importantly, make us think about the world a little bit differently.
