Briefly, I’ve updated the submission page to reflect a new reading period and my needs for non-fiction.

As well, happy to report that Robert Shearman’s story “Bedtime Stories for Yasmin,” was given an Honorable Mention (Short List), in The Best Horror of the Year, Vol. 5. Given that 2 stories from issue 3 will be reprinted in the volume, I’m very pleased. Hopefully some of the other worthy tales will garner some recognition, as well.

    That’s great news about “Bedtime Stories for Yasmin.” I loved that story and have been touting it (and Shadows & Tall Trees) to whoever will listen ever since I read it (check for proof!).

    Best of luck in your new format, and continued success with the quality you’ve already established!

      Thanks for your query. I am afraid I am not currently open to
      unsolicited submissions.

    If you are interested, I have a fiction submission I would like to enter for publication. When is “Shadows and Tall Trees” open for submissions?

    Thank you,
    C.H. Brown

      It is on hiatus. It has been for two years. But I seem to be getting a lot of submissions for it in the last week. Can you tell me where you saw the guidelines, as I need to inform them I am not open.

    Are you interested in publishing Bulgarian horror short stories? I’d like to send one (it’s translated in English) that is already published in one of the best Bulgarian horror anthologies.
