Monthly competition for horror and weird fiction

This contest is now closed

A competition for tales of horror and weird fiction

Whether it's Weird Tales, The Twilight Zone, Tales of the Unexpected, The X-Files or just generally unsettling ghost stories, those are the kind of stories for us. Macabre and gruesome as you like, or just plain spooky. Supernatural or not.

This competition is held monthly and stories will be voted to become the winner.

The winner can choose between a 10k Awardicon + 10K GPs OR 20K GPs.
(If there is only 1 entry, the competition will be rolled over to next month)
(In any case where it is a tie, I will judge the winner)

Sadly, this is the last month of this contest.
Thanks to all who entered and all the best with the writing.
