Description: Carriage House Review is a literary magazine dedicated to previously unpublished dark fiction.

Editor(s): K.A. Hunter

Needs: Carriage House Review is a biannual literary magazine devoted to dark_x000D_ fiction. Our aim is to present previously unpublished writings in the_x000D_ spirit of such writers as Joyce Carol Oates, Ramsey Campbell, Shirley Jackson,_x000D_ Thomas Ligotti, Anne Sexton, Peter Straub, Flannery O'Connor, Henry_x000D_ James,_x000D_ and A.M. Homes. We believe that what constitutes "horror" or the macabre_x000D_ encompasses far more than one labeled shelf at the bookstore. For_x000D_ example,_x000D_ we consider some of the writings of such "literary" authors as Tennessee_x000D_ Williams and_x000D_ Katherine Anne Porter to be as dark and compelling as any genre-oriented_x000D_ writing. We are seeking intelligent, disquieting, disturbing, and_x000D_ well-written work. Beyond those considerations, the sky's the limit;_x000D_ please_x000D_ do not feel restricted to conventional "horror" themes. A familiarity_x000D_ with_x000D_ the works of at least one of the writers listed above or on our website_x000D_ is_x000D_ strongly recommended._x000D_

_x000D_ Currently seeking short stories (between 1,500 and 7,000 words), poems,_x000D_ and_x000D_ experimental fiction. For legibility purposes we encourage you to submit_x000D_ your writing in a standard submission format. $6 per accepted short_x000D_ story/experimental submission. piece. $4 per accepted poetry submission._x000D_ Copyright reverts to author. We will be reading submissions for_x000D_ publication_x000D_ consideration for Issue II from November 15, 2001 through March 15,_x000D_ 2002._x000D_ Projected date of publication for Issue II is June 1, 2002. Simultaneous_x000D_ submissions not accepted. Please limit your submission to no more that_x000D_ three short stories, six short short stories, six poems, and/or six_x000D_ experimental pieces unless otherwise agreed upon with the editor._x000D_

Tips: Although we appreciate a diverse range of what could be_x000D_ considered dark fiction, we are seeking a certain tone. Familiarity with_x000D_ at least one of the authors listed on our website is highly recommended._x000D_ We are seeking writing that moves and disturbs the reader...writing with a_x000D_ timeless, thoughtful feel. Flat-out horror is fine, but only if tempered_x000D_ with a certain restraint, an elegance or originality. Again, reading the_x000D_ works of such authors as those listed on our website is probably the_x000D_ easiest way to get a feel for what we're seeking._x000D_
