We had a large number of submissions for my Guest Issue of Midnight Echo, and there were a number of stories that stuck with me, and a number of writers I was seriously impressed by. I’ve read stories by many of them before, but others were new to me. In the end, I decided to publish a shortlist before I made my final choices, because I wanted to publicly annnounce; there is good stuff happening in Horror fiction, and these are some of the writers who are making it happen.
From the Midnight Echo blog:
“The submission period is over, the stories are read, and I am suitably disturbed. There are some seriously sinister horror stories in my pile.
In fact, there are so many good ones we’ve decided to publish a short list. This may not be the ordinary way to do things, but Midnight Echo is no ordinary outlet for horror.
In the end, I’ll only be able to choose five or six stories. But in the meantime, check out these authors. Talented, every last one of them.”
