Sirens Call Publications is currently accepting submissions for:

    All Men, All Horror - 'Screams in the Night' - Issue #20

Our bi-monthy eZine - The Sirens Call

As a follow-up to our WiHM issue in February, we are devoting issue #20 of The Sirens Call ezine to men in the horror industry. We'll be accepting short stories, flash fiction, and a limited number of poems from men only for this issue.

The criteria:

Your submission must be a work of HORROR fiction revolving around the theme of 'Screams in the Night'. A scream can be an ear piercing bleat of terror, the sound of tires screeching on a paved road, a mechanical sound made by a thundering machine, or even a distant cry of an unknown animal. Be creative, think outside of the box, but make sure your story of horror revolves around a scream.

The type of horror pieces we are looking for are psychological, monster/creature, ghost/haunting, alien/otherworldly, or just damn scary!

The type of horror we do NOT want are stories of abuse and revenge - revenge is acceptable if there is enough horror in it, but no 'wife beater' tales. And we'd prefer that you avoid stalker yarns with a 'strangled cry' at the end. This issue is meant to showcase the diversity of talent and ingenuity among men in the horror community, not reinforce industry stereotypes.

As a side note - this issue is not meant to compete with the WiHM issue, all due props to the women, it is a phenomenal issue and we couldn't be happier. This issue is meant to shine a spotlight on the men in the horror world in equal measure as the previous one highlighted women. Fair is only fair, right?


Submission Deadline: April 1, 2015

Short story word count: 1,000 - 2,500

Flash fiction word count: 300 - 1,000

Poem length: minimum 10 lines; maximum 50 lines (with a limit of five poems per author)

Drabbles: 100 words (requirement of three acceptable drabbles per author/limit of five submitted)

Reprints are acceptable as long as you currently hold the copyright.

All submissions MUST be submitted to: Submissions@SirensCallPublications.com

Through Clouded Eyes: A Zombie's View

Anthology: Horror/Zombie

We are looking for short stories of horror fiction told from the zombie's point of view. We will consider different, intriguing, and creative spins on the multiple zombie mythos that currently exist. There are many fine zombie oriented anthologies already published, but we’re putting a spin on ours – at least 75% of the story must be told as the zombie from the zombie’s perspective.

We’re giving the undead a chance to tell their tale through your words!

We will not be accepting the following:

  • Fan fiction of any variety - no characters, names, places, or homage pieces.
  • Preexisting characterization from a story, novella, novel, or series you write.
  • Love stories (no matter how fantastic yours is) - this is a horror only anthology.

We encourage you to be as unique as you’d like and bring a new viewpoint to those who have suffered or perhaps sought ZOMBIFICATION!

If you have questions about the details for the call, please write to submissions@sirenscallpublications.com before beginning your piece.


Submission Deadline: June 1, 2015 (midnight PST)

Word Count: minimum 4,000 words; maximum: 8,000 words (anything outside that range will be automatically rejected).

Payment: $25 per story selected for inclusion.

Copyright: First time worldwide copyright for a period of one year after publication.

Reprints will NOT be considered.

All submissions MUST be submitted to: Submissions@SirensCallPublications.com


Evaluation period: We expect to have the stories read and chosen within two months of the closing date. We strive to move through the decision making process as quickly and fairly as possible. If we find ourselves overwhelmed with submissions, we’ll contact the submitting authors to inform them of any delay.
