We are looking for dark speculative short stories between 1,000 and 5,000 words in length.  We accept only electronic submissions.  Please entitle your email as follows: “Submission: [Story Name]”

Writers should submit their work as attachments, either in Word or RTF format.  Please use Courier 12-point font and double spacing.  Please see William Shunn’s excellent guidelines (link on right sidebar) for further information.

In the body of your email, please indicate the length of your story and include your name, address, and a short bio written in the third person.
