Aseptic and Faintly Sadistic: An Anthology of Hysteria Fiction
Cosmic Horror Monthly

Limited Demographic: anyone directly at risk as a result of the Supreme Court’s ruling on Roe v. Wade, defined inclusively

Note: an unspecified amount of proceeds will be donated to Chicago Abortion Fund


Irrational. Frenzied. Unreasonable. Unable to speak their own experiences.

In the case of abortion specifically, we have been told for decades in the United States that Roe v. Wade was safe and that we were overreacting, illogical, needlessly aggressive—hysterical. Now look. We were none of those things.

Genre: Dark speculative, widely defined.

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.
