Horror Bound Magazine Publications seeks short stories for an upcoming anthology entitled Fear of the Dark (temporary title). The point of the stories should be to investigate the human fear of the unknown, the dark, and the common themes found in nightmares.
Reading Period: They will read stories starting March 5, 2010 to June 30, 2010 (or until the anthology is filled). Those who they offer a contract to will be contacted shortly thereafter.
Payment: Payment will be 1 cent per word (CAD), based on the final, edited word count from Microsoft Word rounded to the nearest hundred words, plus one contributor’s copy.
All submissions should include an author bio and a short synopsis. Horror Bound wants to know why your short story fits their theme.
Submission guidelines: Stories should be 1500-5500 words, standard format, with the author’s name, email address, and word count in the upper left-hand corner of the first page. Stories should be sent as email attachments in Microsoft Word to email@example.com.
They request first print rights and electronic rights.
