Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine Guidelines Information

Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine Publisher: Penny Publications

Established: 1956

Website URL:

Description: Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine is a monthly publication that presents stories packed with suspense, mystery, and intrigue.

Needs: Because this is a mystery magazine, the stories we buy must fall into that genre in some sense or another. We are interested in nearly every kind of mystery, however: stories of detection of the classic kind, police procedurals, private eye tales, suspense, courtroom dramas, stories of espionage, and so on. We ask only that the story be about a crime (or the threat or fear of one). We sometimes accept ghost stories or supernatural tales, but those also should involve a crime. You might find it useful to read one or more issues of AHMM; that should give you an idea of the kind of fiction we buy.

Length: We prefer that stories not be longer than 12,000 words; most of the stories in the magazine are considerably shorter than that.

Payment: AHMM says "Our rates for original stories are from 5 to 8ยข a word, sometimes higher for established authors."

How to Submit: AHMM uses an online submission system and prefers submissions to be made through the system.
