Submissions open for horror club anthology

SUBMISSIONS are open for a new anthology of unspeakable horror entitled Tales From the Bell Club.

Edited by New Zealand author Paul Mannering and published by Knightwatch Press, the anthology calls for stories set in the early 20th century from members of the Bell Club – an exclusive establishment whose members have experienced unspeakable horror.

Successful membership requires the applicant to tell a story - and if the members find it disturbing enough – the applicant is granted access. It's like a nascent support group for the traumatised.

No one judges or questions the stories told - because all the members have seen such things as no man can rationalise - and who are they to judge if a fellow storyteller is lying, mad or hallucinating?

By its nature the stories are set in the early years of the 20th Century, with male or female protagonists.

Payment is $25 plus a free eBook edition of the anthology.

Submissions close on December 20, with an estimated publication date of Spring, 2012.
