January (2014!) Deadlines

Happy New Year! I’ve got lots of shiny new deadlines to celebrate.

Jamais Vu: The Journal of Strange Among the Familiar – January 15

How to Live on Other Planets: A Handbook for Aspiring Aliens – January 31 (reprints only)

Death’s Realm – January 31

Boroughs of the Dead II – February 1

Southern Haunts 3: Magic in the Moonlight – May 1

Zombified II: The Second Time Around – May 15

Diabolic Tales IV: The Psychology of Death – June 1

Shimmer Magazine – reopening January 6

DarkFuse Anthologies – ongoing

These deadlines are, as always, Submitter Beware, because I can’t vouch for any of these publishers. This is basically just a place for me to deposit short story deadlines to which I would like to submit work, so all the markets are paying (usually at least $.01 a word, although I’m getting a lot pickier about pay rates lately) and accept electronic submissions. They’re all genre markets of some kind (horror, science fiction, steampunk, fantasy).

Please be sure to check Horror TreeRalan and Dark Markets for more publications looking for submissions.  This list is by no means exhaustive. Oh, and don’t forget to check posts from previous months (they’re all categorized under Upcoming Deadlines) for publications that are still open.

If you’re an editor or publisher and you’d like me to feature your deadline here, you can email me at sarah.hans at gmail dot com with the details.

Happy Submitting!
