ANTHOLOGY submission CALLs

Made in Britain


... the title says it all – this exemplary anthology is open ONLY to writers from the Sceptered Isle  (England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales – Gibraltar and the Falklands too!)  - and ex-pats of course!  Your story needn’t necessarily be set in England, but should carry that unmistakable British tone that everyone knows and loves.
There’s no set theme – just good ol’ spooky, scary, horror stories – nothing extreme or gratuitous please!
The anthology will be compiled by the superlative horror author, Kevin Kennedy, and published in time for Xmas by the incomparable HellBound Books Publishing.
