Horror Without Victims - new anthology

I am *intending* to issue submission guidelines shortly for next year's Megazanthus Press short story anthology: HORROR WITHOUT VICTIMS. A paying market, as before.
In the meantime, please feel free to start thinking about your submission to suit an anthology with that title. The guidelines are likely to be simply that - with a maximum of, say, 10000 words. Please don't send me anything yet.
For the style of fiction I favour please read some of the reviews of the nine issues of NEMONYMOUS, 'The Horror Anthology of Horror Anthologies' and 'The First Book of Classical Horror Stories'.

Re: Horror Without Victims - new anthology

A curious title. I've always thought that wherever there is horror there must be victims. You don't need to die to become a victim of horror after all. Horror can affect people on physical or psycholgical levels as a result of natural or supernatural factors. Either way one always seems to fall a victim of horror.

Interesting to see where writers go with stories for this antho!

Ahh, I love it when publishers give me some room to breathe: 10k words maximum.

Yes, I, too am fascinated by the submissions I may get.

Just one prospect among many:
to sense that Horror in a character's life is a learning process to be
experienced (even sought and 'enjoyed') and factored into humanism or
spirituality (subconsciously or not).... towards but not as far as suicide cults
or masochism?

Re: Horror Without Victims - new anthology

Thinking out loud: Victim, from the Latin victima, a beast or person killed as a sacrifice. Early usage: A living creature killed and offered as a sacrifice to some deity or supernatural power (OED); for instance: "Of sacrificing there were from the beginning two kinds, the one called Gifts or oblations of things without life: the other victims... slaine sacrifices of birds and beasts" (1613). Things without life, things with life: puppets and persons?

Modern usages: A sufferer from some morbid pathology or feeling. Alternatively: a dupe, one who is swindled. Swindled, perhaps, by one's own unsound mind?

An excellent idea for an anthology of horror stories.

Re: Horror Without Victims - new anthology

Thanks, B$I. Thought-provoking.


It has today occurred to me that THE SWARM by Alison Littlewood (in the SCREAMING BOOK OF HORROR) is, for me, a great example of the new HORROR WITHOUT VICTIMS genre that was inaugurated on 5 October 2012 with my Submission Guidelines for a new anthology. How serendipitous!

Re: Horror Without Victims - new anthology

This is to say that my editor DF Lewis is still reading stories for HORROR WITHOUT VICTIMS. He is a bit reticent about what he is looking for but he'll know it when he sees it!
