We are now open for submissions for two exciting new anthologies: Detective Thrillers and A Dying Planet. Due to be published in early 2020, these add to our Gothic Fantasy series, which includes existing titles like Supernatural Horror, Robots & Artificial Intelligence, Dystopia Utopia, American Gothic and more. Again, we are looking for around twenty to thirty short stories by contemporary writers to complement a selection of classic tales in these anthologies. We are keen to encourage new writers, without prejudice to age, background or previous publication history. It’s the story that matters, and the quality of writing.

Our 2 newest short story anthologies, Agents & Spies and Pirates & Ghosts, are due for release in October, and we’re delighted to now announce the list of names that will be featured in each book. As with the previous titles in the series, contemporary short stories sit alongside a selection of classic tales from the genre, and once again, the good response to our submissions call ensured we were kept busy with the careful process of reading and selecting the new fiction. With its variety of intriguing cases and daring assignments, the Agents & Spies tome promises a feast of thrilling tales, and, not for the faint-hearted, our nautical themed anthology Pirates & Ghosts drags deep sea horrors out into the open with a smattering of singing mermaids and sinister apparitions to boot.
