Simultaneous submissions are allowed as long as you let me know.

And I expect to be notified if a simultaneous submission is accepted elsewhere. That’s just common courtesy. 


Update: All stories need to be self-contained/Stand alone.


I don’t mind a story being part of a series, but it can’t be a serial.

Update #2: No HARDCORE sex!

                          No Sexual violence!

                         No UNDERAGED SEX!!

I’m looking for original (no reprints) well-written (duuh, I guess that that’s fairly obvious) weird stories. My tastes are broad and I’m looking for any of the following: fantasy, dark fantasy, sword and sorcery, ghost, horror, heroic fantasy, science fantasy or just plain odd.

And please, no cover letters or biographies.

Just Shunn Format!

One Story Submission at a time, please!


And please, no stories longer than 10,000 words.



Email topic should be…….

Story Title/Weirdbook/your Name

Preferably attach your story as a doc, docx or rtf file.

Please send it in a standard format; if in doubt check here for guidance:


Current payment is $5 per thousand words  and two printed contributor copies. Only one copy for poetry.

(That’s $0.005 per word)

Please send your submissions to: weirdaether(AT)


And lastly, if you want to impress me then you need to ENTERTAIN ME!!
