Many writers and creatives are plagued by depression and anxiety, often referred to as “The Black Dog.” Ironically, it is during these dark days that our furry friends become our strongest supporters.
I’m working with a fantastic team to put together a horror/dark fiction anthology with a strong, canine theme
This will be a dark, doggy-themed collection where absolutely anything with a canine connection goes, with one essential caveat – the dog does not die. Everyone else can be slaughtered by zombies, or lost in the depths of deep space, but the dog (or dogs) will always survive.
What are we looking for?
We want you to think outside the box (or kennel) with this one.
Perhaps the dog is the killer, or maybe the dog kills the killer. The dog might be your protagonist, unreliable narrator, or any other major character. We welcome robot dogs and Frankenstein-creature dogs, mutated or evolved dogs, dogs with a sixth sense, or dogs that are just very special in their own right! They can be real life dogs, ghost dogs, demon dogs, or the proverbial black dog. Most importantly, surprise us with your best writing. We prefer psychological and supernatural or creature-feature stories over out-and-out gore.
