- Successful submissions will be highly original, well written and cleanly edited.
- Stories can be frightening, thought-provoking, atmospheric, humorous or satirical (or any combination thereof), but MUST contain a complete tale

The Alchemy Press Book of Horrors is looking for horror tales for an anthology that can be described as “weird”, “strange”, “amazing” and “peculiar.”
Your story can be set in almost any era, any place but glimpse at and pervert the usual perceptions of reality – and unreality. We do not want stories that deal with common horror tropes without stretching boundaries. Avoid zombies unless they are tackled in an unexpected and strange fashion. No urban romance – you know, heroine falling for a vampire and so forth. Nor do we want to see religious tracts, porn, and we really, really do not want gross-out horror tales.
- 3,000-6,000 words
- Due January 31, 2018
- Payment: 0.5/word
Flash Fiction Magazine is accepting fiction stories between 300–1000 words.
What qualifies as a STORY is subjective, but in general…It should have a beginning, middle, and end with conflict and resolution.
- Conflict = There needs to be an incident or event of some kind. Something must happen to qualify as a STORY.
- Resolution = In the end, the character’s world is different as a result of the incident and how it was dealt with.
- $30 – Per Story
