Call for Submissions: Best Horror of the Year volume 6 (2013 material only)

Call for Submissions

I am editing the anthology series Best Horror of the Year (Night Shade Books) and am currently reading for the sixth volume, which will include all material published in 2013. Reprints only.

I am looking for stories and poetry from all branches of horror: from the traditional-supernatural to the borderline, including high-tech sf horror, supernatural stories, psychological horror, dark thrillers, or anything else that might qualify. If in doubt, send it. This is a reprint anthology so I am only reading material published in or about to be published in 2013. Submission deadline for stories is December 1st 2013. Anything sent after this deadline will reach me too late. If a magazine, anthology, or collection you’re in or you publish is coming out in December, you can send me galleys or manuscripts so that I can judge the stories in time. No email submissions unless you live outside the US.  I strongly suggest that authors check with their publishers that they are sending review copies to me as I don’t have time or energy to nag publishers to get me material. I request it once (maybe twice) and that’s it.

There will be a summation of "the year in horror" in the front of the volume. This will include novels, nonfiction, poetry, art books, and "odds and ends"-- material that doesn't fit elsewhere but that I feel might interest the horror reader. But I must be aware of this material in order to mention it. The deadline for receipt of material for this section is December 15th, 2013.

Ellen Datlow

Best Horror of the Year Volume Six

PMB 391

511 Avenue of the Americas

New York, NY 10011-8436

****I do not want to receive manuscripts from authors of stories from venues that it’s likely I already receive (like Interzone, Black Static, Crimewave, Cemetery DancePostscripts, Weird Tales, F&SF and the other digests, etc) or from anthologies and collections, unless I don't have or can’t get that anthology or collection. Please contact your publisher and ask him/her to send me the magazine or book.

For online publications, please have your publishers send me email files of your stories. I will also accept printouts of stories produced and first “published” in 2013 as podcasts.

Please do not send an SASE. If  I choose a story you will be informed. If you want to confirm that I‘ve received something, enclose a self-addressed-stamped postcard and I will let you know the date it arrived.

thank you

Sincerely

Ellen Datlow

Guidelines to Fearful Symmetries--open reading period

Fearful Symmetries guidelines

Renowned editor and anthologist Ellen Datlow will be editing an unthemed, all original anthology of terror and supernatural fiction for CZP, Fearful Symmetries, scheduled to be published in Spring 2014. (The project was funded through Kickstarter by your generous donations!)

Ellen says: "This is a non-theme, all original anthology of about 125,000 words of terror and supernatural horror. I’m looking for all kinds of horror, but if you’re going to use a well-worn trope, try to do something fresh with it. If you’ve read any volumes of The Best Horror of the Year, you’ll know that my taste is pretty eclectic, that I like variety, and that while I don’t mind violence, I don’t think it should be the point of a story. I don’t want vignettes but fully formed stories that are about something. I want to be creeped out."

Payment is 7 cents/word. Up to 10,000 words, BUT Ellen would prefer stories up to 7500 words. No reprints.

A large percentage of the stories have already been solicited, but we have a small window for open submissions, from May 1 - May 31, 2013. Please send your best work.

We are using the Moksha Submissions System. You can submit here:
