Hey all, While 9Tales Told in the Dark and 9Tales From Elsewhere are our ongoing publications, from time to time we like to expand readership through themed releases. Submission guidelines and the process are the same, but these themes are currently of our highest interest. Some may include varying forms of payment for rights, see each individual listing for details.


You cannot submit directly to any one of these themes, acceptance and placement of your story is at the editors’ discretion.


Please note that the time between being accepted and published may be longer for these releases. If you have had a story accepted and have not been paid or notified of the release date, please email us for an update.


Please check back frequently as our needs may change…
