OPEN CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS to our bi-monthly eZine - The Sirens Call

    Words of Death - Issue #18

Our end-of-the-year issue traditionally centers around death, and this year is no exception.

We're keeping it very simple and open-ended and asking you to submit stories of death. They can be stories leading to death; stories of dying; stories after death; or stories written from the perspective of Death itself.

This is a Horror and Dark Fiction publication, so we ask for works that are not only topical, but genre suitable as well. With that said... Bring out your Dead!

*Undead does not qualify unless the death that created the state of being undead is a significant portion of the piece.

Submission Deadline: December 5, 2014

Reprints are acceptable as long as you currently hold the copyright.

All submissions MUST be submitted to:

Mental Ward: Experiments

The elevator doors open, the lights are flickering, the gurney is wheeled into a dank, dimly-lit hallway well below ground. Does the Doctor have the patient's best interests at heart, or is something more nefarious going on? How does the staff figure out what treatments are most effective and which are not?

In our other two Mental Ward collections, we asked you to tell us what happened above ground in the institute itself; what memories of the past were trapped in the abandoned hallways; now we're asking you to tell us what goes on behind closed doors. The secret experiments that are feared and whispered about among the patients. Tell us what greed, the corruption of power, and the desire to be remembered will drive a Doctor to do the unthinkable to the unfortunate patients left in their care.

Tell your tale from whoever's perspective you'd like, just make sure the story you tell is a depraved one.

Note: This is a reopened anthology. Your story must contain the following three elements to be considered:

  • Your story must take place in a Mental Asylum or Institution.
  • Your story must involve individuals from the Asylum: doctors, nurses, patients, etc.
  • Your story must contain what would be considered an unsanctioned experiment that is physically performed.

  • Submission Deadline: November 30, 2014

    Word Count: minimum 4,000 words - nothing less will be reviewed; maximum: 8,000 words - nothing more will be reviewed.

    No reprints will be considered.
