Coffee Grinder logo with caption: The Grinder, brewing your submissions into something useful

We’re looking for scary,
mind-bending stories featuring dreams,
nightmares, hallucinations, messed-up
psychedelic experiences, and various
elements of phantasmagoria. Think sleep
experiments gone awry and Freddy
Krueger and “This is bat country!” from
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, but
maybe the bats are real and maybe they are
vampires? Feel free to bring the weird, the
trippy, and the surreal in large doses.
