The Other Side: A Horror Anthology

web site

Deadline: August 30, 2020

Death. What would horror be without a little sprinkle of death?

Yet it’s not the act of dying that creates the evergreen mystery surrounding the finality that comes with loss of life, it’s the enigma that follows the question: what comes next?

The Other Side is a horror anthology which explores the great beyond. We’re looking for stories that tackle the world beyond the living. Ghosts, ghouls, possession, ritual, cultural beliefs, the paranormal, monsters, the occult, this anthology will collect the greatest stories that answer the age-old question:
When we breathe our last breath, where do we go?
