As Summer Leaves and Autumn Falls - issue #40
Stories of disaster influenced by horrific intent.
Whether it be Mother Nature’s wrath or a devilish ghoul, a sprite most wicked or a stumbling fool, tell us a tale of disaster that happens as summer ends and autumn begins.
We are looking for stories, flash fiction and poetry of horrific happenings that take place in the summer months that lead into fall. As long as the piece is primarily horror/dark
fiction, we’d love to see it!
Your piece can be creepy, sullen, emotive, freaky, elegant, bizarre, have a dark-humor edge to it, or simply be flat out scary as hell!
The basic rules:
- Write the piece well.
- It must be primarily horror/dark fiction.
- Don't break our set-in-stone taboos - NO pedophilia, NO bestiality, and NO descriptive rape scenarios.
Send us your horrific imaginings, and if they fit the bill, we'll bring them to life for 35,000 readers!
