Note: Chthonic Matter is OPEN to submissions.

Chthonic Matter is a quarterly offering of tales from the darkside. Its contents range in tone from the quiet horror of Shirley Jackson to the bleak stylings of Thomas Ligotti — and everything in between. In order to better understand the type of fiction I am looking for, be sure to review my previous series, Nightscript. All eight volumes are available for “free” via Kindle Unlimited.

Each edition of Chthonic Matter will include eight stories. New editions will appear at the outset of Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter, and will be published in paperback and eBook formats. Authors should submit their original tales (between 2,000 and 6,000 words) via the email provided below and allow up to one month for a response. An open reading period will continue throughout the year, unless otherwise noted.

Submit .doc files to: 

Send only one story per submission — and, please, no reprints. If rejected, authors may submit up to three additional times per calendar year. Simultaneous submissions are welcome — just let me know. 

Payment is two contributor copies.

Thank you for your interest, and I look forward to reading your work!
