We are receiving many, many submissions to The Alchemy Press Book of Horrors — thank you all. We do try to acknowledge each submission within a few days of receipt. However, these current two/three weeks are proving to be very busy (for other real life reasons), so any acknowledgements will be delayed.
If you submit anything to The Alchemy Press Book of Horrors, please write a brief note in the body of the email, along the lines of “Dear Peter and Jan, please consider my story for…” etc. An email devoid of any kind of communication but with only a file attachment does give us cause for concern.
It would also be of benefit if you could put the title of your story in the email’s submission line (don’t worry if you haven’t done so but have already submitted); and obviously name the attached file with the story title — this is to stop submissions becoming lost or misfiled on our computers. Make sure your manuscript includes the story title, your name and pen name (if applicable), and a contact email address.
2018 sees the re-launch of the Alchemy Press Book Of… anthologies with a brand new title: HORRORS, edited by Peter Coleborn and Jan Edwards. We are looking for horror stories … but tales that can be described as “weird”, “strange”, “amazing” and “peculiar”: stories that would have found a home in Weird Tales, Unknown Worlds, Fantastic and Fantasy Tales among other illustrious publications.
