We’re publishing an anthology of
mystery stories set during Halloween, MY “most wonderful time of the year”.
Paranormal elements are acceptable as long as they are in keeping with the
Halloween theme and the central story is a mystery. We’re seeking stories that
are 4000 – 8000 words in length. Query about reprints. We will accept multiple
submissions, but not simultaneous submissions.

Open submission period:
April 20 – July 15th, 2013.
