Call for submissions to RICHMOND MACABRE, a new horror anthology

During a recent visit to Fairfield Library, our wonderful librarian Mike pointed out a call for submissions to Richmond Macabre, an anthology of horror short stories. Like last year’s Richmond Noir (Akashic Books, March 2010), all the stories will be set in and around Richmond.

Iron Cauldron Books is currently seeking submissions for the Richmond Macabre horror anthology. Your story may be of any horror variety, from spooky to gory, but must feature Richmond (during the time period of your choice) as its setting. Submissions should be between 3,000 and 6,000 words in length and must be all new material – previously published stories will not be considered. Selected manuscripts will be combined and published as both a trade paperback and an e-book for Halloween, 2011 release. There is no entry fee.

The deadline for submission is May 31, 2011. You can find out more at Happy writing, Richmond. I’m looking forward to reading the nightmares stalking the River City.
