It Calls From the Sky
Eerie River Publishing




Description
Theme: Send me your stories of lights in the sky, a storm that brings with it more than rain, comets that crash, aliens that secretly invade, or a wishing star that is hell-bent on revenge. The stories themselves do not have to take place in the sky, but the evil bad does need to come from it in some way or form.

We are looking for horror. Give us elements of surprise, twists and turns, scare me with your words and your imagery. Need to sacrifice a puppy to appease the pagan god of the sun from scorching the earth? Do it, and make me watch it. But only if necessary. I am fine with gore, but it should not take over the plot.

We are requesting the stories take place in "our world". Fantasy and fantastic creatures are welcome, but they should occur within our reality.


This listing is permanently closed for submissions. This may mean one of several things:
  • It was always planned to be a limited-time project, such as a one-time anthology, and the limited-time submission window has ended.
  • The publisher has stated that they are permanently closed, or on hiatus with wording that makes it sound permanent.
  • The publication website is down in a way that appears to be permanent, and we haven't been able to find a new website for them.
  • The publication website is not down, but it appears to have been inactive for more than a year.
