I arrive offering more good news for February! Ghost Orchid Press have just released their Hundred Word Horror Anthology, based on the theme of Home.
One hundred stories and poems. One hundred words each. Contributed by a diverse group of authors from across the globe, these tiny terrors run the full gamut of horror, from body horror and blood-curdling fear to atmospheric, lyrical Gothic tales. You’ll find haunted houses, burrowing parasites and suburban nightmares aplenty to delight, amuse and shock—all in an easy bitesize format.
I have a very small story included here called Uninvited. My contribution was actually inspired by a bit of an inside joke that ended up becoming genuinely creepy as we progressed. Alas, I cannot say much without spoiling my bite-sized horror piece, but all I will say is this: sometimes even locks are useless.
You can find a whole bunch of other stories and poems inside. Seriously. There’s like, a million contributing authors. This fabulous TOC is as follows:
Abi Marie Palmer, Alanna Robertson-Webb, Alec Thompson, Alexis DuBon, Alison Whittenberg, Amanda Crum, Anjali Patel, Antonia Rachel Ward, Ashley Van Elswyk, Benjamin Bateman, Benjamin Gardner, Biswajit Ganguly, Blaise Langlois, Blen Mesfin, C.M.
