We are well into another year and have news!


So we’ve been playing catch up, lots of it as the holidays left us scrambling. There are a few announcements and a few changes.

The most important change is that we will not be publishing a Gothic Blue Book this year.

This year, we will publish one new short story per month. However, now, our monthly short story author will receive payment for their story.

We do apologize that there is no Gothic Blue Book planned for this year, and we have a very reasonable excuse that we can’t quite disclose publicly yet.  It’s good news, life changing news, and we will share soon.

Additionally, weekly blog posts will increase, and we will continue the focus in discussing all things folklore, legend, superstition and myth.

The submissions listings will be updated shortly.

We thank you for understanding.
