Editor is a word that scares me, when it is applied to myself.
I am taking care of a new anthology, to be published by Horrified Press, as part of their Silent Fray line of physical horror books.
My project is called Ladies in Red, and it goes like this…
They have been the focus of horror movies for decades: the scream queens, the final girls, running upstairs to escape the masked killer…
The time has come for them to be brought center stage in an collection of blood and guts stories with a difference.
Uncompromising, in-your-face horror with a strong female focus.
Let’s get physical.
We are not looking for paranormal romance. No sexy vampires, no lustful werewolves.
We want hard-hitting, gut-wrenching tales of fear. Blood. Gore. Body horror. Twisted psychology.
And women, standing among the carnage and mayhem.
Because where angels fear to tread, a woman will hold her own.
We are looking for stories and poetry.
You find all the sordid details here, at the very bottom of the page.
In Brief: 2000/6000-words stories, hard-hitting horror with a strong female lead.
Reprints ok, poetry ok.
