Preference for stories where the winter holidays play an important role in the story: Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year’s, Chinese New Year, Thanksgiving, winter solstice, yule, other winter holidays (real or invented). *Note: World Weaver Press is a market for queer, multi-ethnic, multi-national, non-tradition fiction. Even horror authors like Stephen King and Clive Barker appreciate the power of the short story, despite the fact that most of their books could give Geoff Capes a nasty hernia.

These questions and more as we try to determine who these horror movie children are and what they're trying to do. However, if you prefer to just write and send us a complete story, that’s great too. In “They’re Sneaking Up On You!,” an employee gains revenge upon his employer by allowing the apartment in which his boss (who is terrified of germs and insects) lives become overrun with cockroaches.

The story revolves around a mother ( Susan George ) who is concerned that her new born baby is not thriving. Please avoid stream-of-consciousness, all the action takes place in the narrator's head-type stories. Kelly Phillips, guest judge for volume 1 of Indie Comics Quarterly is co-editor and producer of this annual volume. Thus my first recommendation for an anthology is really a single-author collection, but please forgive me: Tanith Lee’s collection of retold fairy tales Red As Blood had a huge impact on me when I was young.

I also solicited the opinion of many esteemed editors while writing this post, and I will be creating a follow-up post of over-looked anthologies. Victory against the coming darkness is never certain, but one thing’s for sure—your adventure will be epic. We want tightly plotted tales in out-of-the-ordinary scenarios. That said, today’s multi-author “for the love” or “for an author copy” anthologies that collect the works of beginning authors are a portal into print in a world where very few spec-fic magazines have survived as the fittest.

We ask for exclusive rights for one year, and non-exclusive after that. If the editor expresses an interest and asks you to write sections for each region of the country, then you'd write an article on dog-friendly landscaping and organize it by regions. My favorite in the collection was Neil A. When she's not interviewing some cool sci-fi TV producer or actor for Syfy, she's working on her vampire novel or critiquing with her writers' group, The Lady Scribes.

Preexisting characterization from a story, novella, novel, or series you write. The plot is simple but well-written, and the characters are authentic. Supposedly, one can either observe the spirits of those who have died as they repeatedly relive their last leap, or hear their final screams. Involve the protagonist bravely sacrificing himself/herself at the end of the story so the able/neurotypical characters can survive (seriously, this is becoming a cliché) Contain graphic sex or violence, rape, women in refrigerators, etc.

Scientists who find a way to clone dinosaurs don't take into account what might happen if something goes awry. This month sees the release of my second horror novel for middle grade readers, Sheldon Unger Vs. Zombie Films in the 1930s - 1940s: Zombies are 'walking dead' creatures, often with decayed flesh, that are destructive, malevolent, prey on human flesh, and almost impossible to 'kill.' The word zombie was derived from the Bantu language of Angola (n-zumbi meaning ghost or departed spirit), and zombies (involved in Haitian voodoo) debuted in William B.

This is some twisted shit, but Parkinson makes it all a fascinating trainwreck to witness. She's edited numerous horror anthologies and has four anthologies coming out in 2000: VANISHING ACTS (sf), BLACK HEART, IVORY BONES (her last adult fairy tale anthology, with Terri Windling, A WOLF AT THE DOOR (a children's fairy tale anthology with Windling), and THE YEAR'S BEST FANTASY AND HORROR: THIRTEENTH ANNUAL COLLECTION (with Windling).
