Franklin/Kerr Press is looking for exceptional horror short stories with post-apocalyptic and dystopian themes or settings for our upcoming horror anthology Down with the Fallen. Stories can cover a wide variety of horror sub-genres such as sci-fi, splatter, psychological, suspense and the weird as long as they have a substantial dystopian or post-apocalyptic element. No erotic or extreme sexually explicit elements. Franklin/Kerr will choose eight to ten stories to include in the anthology from author submissions to be published in both print and e-book formats.
Stories can range from 2,000 to 8,000 words; however, longer stories will be considered.
Pays $5 per 1,000 words. 
Deadline: July 21, 2017. Details here

Upper Rubber Boot Books seeks submissions for Sharp & Sugar Tooth: Women Up To No Good, an anthology of dark, speculative fiction to be published in late 2018 or early 2019.
Sharp & Sugar Tooth is looking for creepy, seductive stories about the dark side of culinary life. The emphasis should be on the preparation or the consumption of food – horrifying, mouth-watering stories that make us hungry despite ourselves.
Subversive, diverse stories with protagonists who identify as girls/women are appreciated. We want these characters in the kitchen – and out of it – using their butcher knives and baking skills to create meals that are dark and lovely and empowering, because consumption has a dangerous and tempting taste.
Stories can be any variety of fantasy or science fiction, provided the element of horror is present. Strong language and sex is no problem, but we’re not interested in torture-porn of humans or animals (regardless of whether they end up on a plate).
Pays 6 cents/word. 
Deadline: July 31, 2017. Details here.
