Night Terrors from Blood Bound Books “will be an open-themed anthology of horror. Stories can range from 750–5000 words and must be rooted in the realms of horror/dark fiction. Science fiction and dark fantasy will be considered as long as it has a strong element of horror. Try to avoid classic horror conventions, unless you incorporate a new twist. Remember, evil has no boundaries and neither do we! Nothing is off limits, so take advantage of the freedom. We’ll accept stories in any setting or time period, as long as it’s well written, powerful and original. Most importantly, scare us. We want to be haunted by your story long after we put it down. Gore and sex are acceptable, as long as it serves a purpose.”
This is a contest, and the winners will be published in the print anthology. “1st Place – $.05/word; 2nd Place – $.01/word; 3rd Place – 1/2 cent/word; Runners-up – Flat rate of $5.”
E-mail submissions only. “Subject should read: Night Terrors: story title/author last name.”
Deadline: March 13, 2010
