NLSP will take readers to a place of horror in the fourth installment of our new series:
First Came Fear: New Tales of Horror
Edited by Casey Ellis
From the editor who brought you Startling Sci-Fi: New Tales of the Beyond comes a collection that will terrify. Horror remains one of the most popular genres in television, film and, of course, literature. NLSP wants to join the ghoulish party! Send us your unique, creative fiction in the art of fear. Ghosts, werewolves, vampires and zombies are great. We also welcome psychological horror, tales of witchcraft and black magic, and the work of Old Scratch himself. Everyone is welcome to submit. Take your work in any direction you like, but make sure it fits into the great literary traditions of the genre. Think Mary Shelley, Bram Stoker, and Oscar Wilde to Shirley Jackson, Ira Levin, and Anne Rice. From The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and Kwaidan to The Babadook and Get Out, the best horror, from the quietest gothic to the grisliest gore, uses cleverness and craft. Above all else, whether it be spiritually, intellectually, viscerally or a mix of all three, scare the pants off us!
All submissions must be made through our submissions manager by August 31, 2017.
