Flash fiction, Poetry, Short Stories (2,000 6,000 words)

A god has risen. An elder god of chaos. A god that the Dark Land of Egypt once knew. A frog headed abomination that dwells–where? In the gloom of the collective unconscious? In the crazy depths of the internet? In the minds of conspiracy theorists and muddle minded political fanatics? As insubstantial as a dream–or a nightmare. In a world increasingly fragmented, where right and left, atheism and religion, sanity and lunacy struggle for supremacy, who is the true manifestation of KEK?

BOUGHT AND SOLD – what’s bought, what’s sold, who’s bought, who’s sold, scope here for some superb stories, yes?

  2. Hi! New to horrified press with interest most certainly piqued. Am I correct in assuming that the submission deadlines end at 12:00 Am on the date of or do they run until 11:59pm on the date of?

  8. Interested in Barbarian Crowns II. What sort of timeframe are we looking at? My story is about half completed, just looking at a rough deadline.
    Thanks in advance,
    Stan.

  9. Any word on the status of Ad Nauseam: A Return to Splatterpunk? I tried e-mailing T.M. McLean, but haven’t received a reply. I’ve submitted a story, but I don’t know if it has been accepted/rejected or even received.

      • It’s been over a month and I still haven’t heard anything. I really would like to know what’s happening with this. If this anthology isn’t going forward I would like to submit my story elsewhere, but I’d like to give this one a chance before I do that.

      • Hey,

        Apologies for the late reply, but we have been unable to contact this editor. If this project doesn’t move forward by November end then I will be putting out the call for those already accepted to re-forward their contracts and pieces directly to me, so that the book can be completed for an Xmas release. It wouldn’t be an ideal scenario, but I would like to see this book completed for all concerned.

        Best

  10. My story Forcing the Bar at Maracaibo was accepted for Bottle of Rum back in January of this year. However, I see it listed above as having been accepted for another anthology entitled Moment by Moment. I’ve twice made enquiry of the editor in this regard but have received no reply.What gives?

  11. Are you still looking for submissions for Barbarian Crowns II? It’s still listed here but I don’t see it mentioned on the Current Acceptances page. Thanks!

  12. Stupid question: If Barbarian Crowns is still open, the world that the stories take place in should be referred to as the Southlands? Or was that an example? Lol

  13. I was wondering how full the Thirteen O’clock Press “Alone” is. I have a poem that might fit, but I still have some edits to make. If it’s going to be closed soon I might not have time to finish.

    Thanks!

  18. Will there be more detailed submission guidelines posted for “Blue Gonk III”? I know the editor’s name (James Pyne), preferred genre (dark/horror), and the word count (500). What I don’t know: story formatting details, submission deadline, and how to word the e-mail ‘Subject’ line Thanks!

  19. For “Fantastical Savannahs and Jungles”, and in general, does your request for a period of exclusivity also apply to reprints (e.g. from books that are still in print)?
