Lantern Hollow Press, publisher of The Gallery of Worlds, an e-zine, is seeking submissions for its All Hallow’s Eve issue. Yet another volley in the campaign to prove that “Christian Horror” is not a contradiction in terms.
The editors are looking for “tales of the ghoulish, the ghastly, and downright scary!” Submissions must fit within the realms of fantasy or science fiction. Word counts must be in the 1,000-15,000 range. The deadline is August 15.
As creators of worlds and works, we strive to worship our Creator through emulation. While the tone of our work is not intentionally evangelistic, no material published by our company will contradict a Christian worldview.—Lantern Hollow Press
For more about Lantern Hollow’s requirements, including what the editors may find objectionable, see the submission guidelines.
UPDATE: We’ve learned that Splickety magazine is also planning a Halloween issue, to come out at the end of September. Splickety includes all genres, but Senior Editor Andrew Winch notes that “speculative fiction is particularly appropriate for the creepy feel we’re going for this issue.” Andrew is looking for flash fiction—that’s 1,000 words or less, the shorter the better. Splickety pays “a small stipend” for stories published.
