Darkest Shadow, Brightest Light

Do you love dark and gritty fantasy settings? What about situations of overwhelming odds?

Then you may want to submit to Darkest Shadow, Brightest Light. A Dark Fantasy anthology where the situation can be as grim as you want it to be, even ending in personal tragedy (Death of the heroes), but they need to succeed in the end.

We’re looking for new, previously unpublished stories that take us on an adventure and leave us wanting more.
