    Admin Does not pay for stories upon acceptance. However, published stories appear in a yearly anthology and payment is made to authors based on a share of a portion of the royalties earned by the anthology.

  • About This is a place for horror writers to showcase their talent. We publish two stories per month at this site. In October of each year, just in time for Halloween, we publish a print anthology, which is made available to the authors for a small fee. This anthology is also made available to major publishing houses that publish horror. Who knows? You might be the next Stephen King!
