For the forty-fifth issue of The Sirens Call eZine, we’re looking for works of horror and dark fiction. As an added bonus, if your piece revolves around a scream, all the better; but not required.
What qualifies as a scream? The echo of a screech in the night; the sound of your own mind isolated amongst a crowd; the wheels of a train or car coming to a sudden uncontrolled stop; the howl of a creature in the night; a wail of loss; the chortle of a twisted soul in pure joy. Interesting ideas to contemplate, don’t you think? There are myriad interpretations that qualify as a scream if crafted properly – dealers choice to include one or not!
We’ll be accepting short stories, flash fiction, drabbles, and poetry provided they fit within the horror/dark fiction genre. We welcome reprints as long as you hold the copyright to the piece.
Your piece can be scary, sullen, emotive, freaky, elegant, bizarre, have a dark-humor edge to it, or be flat out creepy as hell!
Submissions are open for The Sirens Call eZine! For the 39th issue we’re looking for solid horror of any theme. We accept short stories, flash fiction, drabbles, and poetry. Reprints welcome! Check out the submissions page for details.
I’f first like to thank all the contributors for submitting their work for this wonderful issue! I always enjoy reading their stories and poetry, and working with them is always a pleasure!
Now it’s time for a little shameless self-promotion! As a writer, I’m prone to such outbursts of my ego.
I was featured in an interview by Sirens Call Publicationsfor this issue. You can read and download the magazine for FREE. It’s filled with great stories, poetry, art, and of course, a little insight into the mind of a particular horror writer. (That would be me).
