Wicked Run Press seeks novella-length addiction-themed horror fiction
Pays $500 per story
The intoxication from a pint of vodka, the electric buzz from snorting cocaine, the warm embrace from shooting heroin – drinking and drugging provides the height of human experience. It’s the promise of heaven on earth, but the hell that follows is a constant hunger, a cold emptiness. The craving to get high is a yearning not unlike that of any other blood-thirsty monster. The best way to tell these truths of addiction is through a story, and dark truths such as these need a piece of horror to do them justice.
“It’s with great enthusiasm that I invite submissions to an addiction-themed horror anthology with an expected spring/summer 2017 publication date. Garden of Fiends is the working title. Submissions should be from 16,000 to 25,0000 words. The publisher will have one title in the anthology, and from 3 to 4 additional works will be included.
Send submissions to:  
Deadline: 1 January 2017. Details here.
