Nightscript is published annually, during grand October, in both trade and electronic editions, and will feature contemporary fictions ranging in length from 2,000 to 7,000 words.

Note: I am currently CLOSED to submissions for Vol. 4. (January 2019 is my next open reading period.)

N. is a venue for ‘strange tales’, a term used to describe fictions supernatural, uncanny, weird, and so forth. In other words, I am looking for subtle and darksome literary horror. If you feel that your work has been inspired in no small part by authors such as Robert Aickman, Shirley Jackson, Dennis Etchison, Flannery O’Connor, Terry Lamsley, Lisa Tuttle, Thomas Owen, Mary Shelley, Arthur Machen, then N. is probably the venue for you.

Authors are asked to submit their original tales via the email provided below and should allow 1 to 8 week(s) for a response. (If a submission is held for longer than two weeks this typically means that it is being considered.)

Submit .doc files to: nightscript.editor@gmail.com (Please send only one story per reading period. No simultaneous submissions, please.)

Payment is $20 and includes one contributor’s copy.

N. is a labor of love, and as such I shall endeavor to produce an aesthetically pleasing product for which all contributors can feel proud.

That said, I look forward to reading your work!

Thank you kindly for your interest.

C.M. Muller, editor & publisher
