We only publish 2 anthologies each year — at least, that’s the plan!
Classic Monsters will be released October 15 each year. 2023: DON’T GO IN THE WATER (Creature from the Black Lagoon) Now closed for submissions and in production.
Fairytales will be released May 1 each year.
2023: PERCHANCE TO DREAM (Sleeping Beauty). (Check back with us in October for the 2024 theme!)

Or you could buy one of the anthologies to read and see what we’ve loved before …
What do we want? We’ll launch from the classic Hollywood monster or known fairytale (ala Brothers Grimm or Universal Studios) and then YOU get to go off at whatever angle strikes your fancy. (We mean, really go off the beaten path. Please don’t simply rename and redress something that could be considered copyright infringement…) TURN IT ON ITS EAR! (In other words, have fun!)
