    I thought “Raphael” by Stephen Graham Jones was amazing. It was published online at Nightmare Magazine (May 2015), although they did say it was originally published by Cemetery Dance – not sure what year.

    But wow, what a story 😉

      Thanks, Philip! Yes, it’s very good, but was definitely published a few years ago.

    I just read Neil Williamson’s story ‘The Secret Language of Stamps’ in Black Static 46, and thought it was brilliant.

    Hi Michael,
    I submitted for the 2015 anthology via Submittable (admittedly in September 2015, though your due date wasn’t until December 31) but my submission hasn’t been opened yet. Is it better to send via email?

      Hi Gabriela,

      The 2015 anthology is filled and closed. I opened every submission, but, as per the guidelines, only those selected for the anthology were contacted.
