Horror stories market
« on: January 08, 2006, 05:20:36 AM »
I mentioned this market in my recent E-Writer newsletter. It's not a big payer, but could be a way of getting exposure for your work if horror fiction is your thing. The competition does offer a decent prize though.

Dark Recesses Press is now open to submissions for issue 3. They are looking for submissions of dark speculative fiction and horror between 500 and 5,000 words. A free, non-printing dowloadable PDF of issue two is available on their website for writers to look at and get a feel for the type of story they prefer. They pay authors 5 USD for works between 500 and 2,000 words, and 10 USD for longer works up to 5000 words. The closing date for issue 3 is February 28, 2006. Full submission details can be found at

Dark Recesses' next DejaVu Horror Contest is also open, with a winner-takes-all prize of 500 USD. The theme of this contest is "The Seductive Vampire" and they say: "You have between 1000 and 2,500 words; not a trickle more or less." There is a 5 USD entry fee (which can be paid by Paypal), and the closing date is May 31, 2006. Further details about the contest can be found at
