And the Dead shall sleep no more: Volume ii

a short fiction anthology

Now Seeking Submissions

We love vampires. They're our favorite horror monster and we've featured them in several of our previous publications. But we're not done yet.

 

And the Dead Shall Sleep No More is an anthology series about vampires. The first volume was published on October 31, 2021 and featured 21 original works of short fiction. 

 

Submissions for the second anthology are now open!

Submissions: Accepting submissions through September 1. Reprints are accepted so long as no other publishing company holds rights to the work being submitted.

Word Limit: 6,000 words

Formatting: Please submit single-spaced manuscripts using size 12 Times New Roman Font. We also ask that you include a cover page.

Compensation: flat $15 fee upon publication, plus a digital copy of the anthology.

Format: We will accept short-form fiction any way you want to write it. This can include poetry, flash fiction or short stories.

 

We're particularly interested in the subversion of form. We don't care about hard and fast rules, so don't worry too much about formatting. If you feel its good, chances are that shines through in the writing. And we want to read it.

Genre: Anything that's dark, creepy, weird and just a little off-kilter. We're open to genre fiction, particularly anything related to horror, science-fiction, speculative fiction or weird fiction. But we're also interested in anything that twists or subverts these genres in some unexpected way.

Publishing Rights: We claim First North American Serial Rights for all accepted submissions. After publication, rights revert back to the author.

Acceptance: Decisions will be made within 2-3 weeks following the close of submissions for the anthology.
