Year's Best Weird Fiction, Volume 2

This is a REPRINT anthology, to be published in 2015, seeking the best weird fiction first published in English in 2014. First english-language publication must have been in 2014.

*AUTHORS: Given the vagaries of publishing, I'd prefer to not receive material until it has actually been published. Please use the form below to submit your work for consideration.

EDITORS/PUBLISHERS: If you would like to send me your book, magazine, periodical, anthology, collection, etc., please e-mail me at

1. Your story must NOT have been self-published.

2. The story must have been published in English.

3. The story must have been published as text (audio fiction is not considered).

4. The story must be short fiction (novel excerpts are not considered).

5. Story length must be 17,499 words or less.

6. The story must fall within the scope of weird fiction. Last year we received a lot of crime fiction, westerns, and run-of-the-mill horror. Please do not send crime fiction, westerns, or horror that only exists to spill blood. Some of our favourite weird fiction writers are Robert Aickman, Laird Barron, Algernon Blackwood, Octavia Butler, Ramsey Campbell, E.T.A. Hoffman, Shirley Jackson, Margo Lanagan, Tanith Lee, Thomas Ligotti, H.P. Lovecraft, Arthur Machen, Caitlin R. Kiernan, and Bruno Schulz. For reference see

7. The story must be an original work of the author (i.e., not part of a media tie-in/licensed fiction program).

8. The story must have been originally published between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2014.

9. Please ensure your manuscript has contact details.

10. In your cover letter, please note where the story was originally published.

Only submissions accepted for the volume will receive a response.

NOTE - If you have any trouble with the form, please query me at:
