Halloween and Coffin Hop Update for Horror For Good: A Charitable Anthology

Horror For Good: A Charitable Anthology, for those who don't know, will be giving all proceeds to amfAR an international AIDS research organization. I'm pleased to announce that R.J. Cavender has signed on with us as Publishing Consultant and we have received stories from Jack Ketchum, Ramsey Campbell, Ray Garton, and many more. We've also received a lot of submissions so far, but still need many more.

While we expect to receive many more submissions in November, we want to ensure we get the word out to as many horror authors as possible. Submissions are open until midnight November 30th, 2011, so you still have a whole month to get your stories in. What we aim to accomplish with this is to put out an amazing horror anthology that will bring in an immense contribution to a great cause.

While this is a nonpaying market, I believe it really will pay in two much bigger ways: 1. It will help people who really need it! 2. Stories chosen to be included will sit side by side by greats and legends in the genre! So, if you haven't yet considered it, please send us a story or start writing, revising, or polishing something to send to us! There's nothing to lose and an incredible amount to possibly be gained. In the true Halloween spirit this anthology will surely be scaring and giving all at once. Let's show the world how big of a heart horror really has.
