Here are the details:
We are looking for 3000-9000 word short horror fiction where war, warfare, the effects of war, or characters affected by war are part of the story landscape. This covers all wars from the dawn of man through Ancient Rome, Norman invasions, the Confederate War and The War of Independance, Boer War, Crimean, World War I and World War II, Vietnam, Korea, the cold war, nuclear war, and the modern conflicts of Iraq and Afghanistan. We would also welcome work that deals with war in an unorthodox or unusual setting for instance the gang wars of south central Los Angeles, the war on drugs, the war on terror, and religious warfare.

We will accept any story that touches in any way on war or the effects of war itself on the human condition from creatures, beasts, serial killers, apocalyptic, ghosts, demons and death. We certainly welcome any submissions that deal with the human horror of war.

Remember... we are looking for HORROR be it dark, twisted, frightening, gothic, extreme, weird... you name it and if it deals with war, historical or modern, we will accept it as a submission for this collection, read it and provide at the very least to you some personal feedback.

PAYMENTS AND PRIZES

We are currently working out a pay-scale for this anthology (either per word or a flat fee). Details soon.

The best submission as judged by the editors will receive a copy of the print book and a 30 EURO cash prize.

The 2nd and 3rd best submissions as judged by the editors will each receive a cash prize of 15 EURO and 10 EURO respectively and a copy of the print book.
More information (such as how to submit, where, etc.) can be found on their website.
