Bestwick, Simon “The Lowland Hundred,” Dead Water. Of course, you also get to say that you have had a short story 'published' by us which all adds to your writer's C. Thirty books I edited have been published in the last 3 years; 7 have won awards. Soares did a fantastic job pulling together a variety of humorous stories from across the board. In the future, everything is soulless and electronic, until protagonist (usually a kid) is exposed to ancient wisdom in the form of a wise old person who's lived a non-electronic life.

Special effects expert Willis O'Brien created many of the models for the film. There may also be another slight distortion in that, lacking information either way I've assumed Alex Langley, who has a story in The Sixth Black Book of Horror, is male. Nothing here is necessarily predictable, even considering the theme, but it is all imaginative and entertaining. We pay $200 for short stories that are under 5,000 words and $500 for stories that are 5,000 words or longer.

Unfortunately, 1985 saw the release of undoubtedly the worst anthology ever, Night Train To Terror, which was appallingly senseless…and highly recommended to aficionados of total schlock. 1995 featured one of the most unique takes on the horror anthology, one that was very traditional in some ways, but utterly different in others. Authors will be notified right away if their story makes the first cut, then the final stories will be selected at the end of the reading period.

Anyone who has experienced the loss of a loved one will no doubt recognize something of themselves in many of the pages here. His smile, aimed directly at the pitcher’s mound, is wide and predatory. We will consider different, intriguing, and creative spins on the multiple zombie mythos that currently exist. On a desolate stretch of desert highway, weary travelers - two men on the run from their past, a band on their way to the next gig, a man struggling to get home, a brother in search of his long-lost sister and a family on vacation - are forced to confront their worst fears and darkest secrets in a series of interwoven tales of terror and remorse on the open road.

Lies like a rug. (The photo of Phyllis Diller isn't autographed.) But she channels her mendacity into her fiction, which flourishes in a spot in the pretend world where we all like to live. The series featured stories from Isaac Asimov, Harlan Ellison, Gregory Benford, Orson Scott Card, and Vonda McIntyre among others. Beagle, Garth Nix, Charles Vess, and many more, plus a glossary of Mars by Richard A. I’d also like to thank all of Les’ fans and friends who helped support and champion this endeavor via social media.

Kelly, Michael “Hungry, the Rain-God Wakens,” (poem) Spectral Realms 2. Whether the pivotal event is psychological or physical, we want it to impact us, to affect us; to make us never want to see […] By Sirens Call Publications May 11, 2016 7 Comments Sirens Call Publications is pleased to announce a new open submission for a horror anthology titled Alone With Your Fear! Shortly, it was joined by Eerie, based solely on the fact that Jim Warren thought Creepy needed an “adversary.” “The Laurel and Hardy syndrome always appealed to me,” Warren said. “Creepy and Eerie are like Boris Karloff and Peter Lorre.” (Or the Crypt-Keeper and his two adversarial GhouLunatics.) Each issue of both these series had multiple stories, usually punctuated by the twist ending you would expect from such titles.
