Submission Guidelines:

We are looking for stories that will shock the reader, make them feel uncomfortable as they read. Give us your sickest, weirdest, craziest stories. The gorier and stranger, the better. That being said, the story still has to be strong. Gore for gores sake will not cut it, but a great story full of gory details is what we are looking for. Since House of Horror donates to the Birmingham Children’s Hospital, we cannot accept any child brutality stories. On the other hand, children handing out the brutality is fine.

Nothing cliché is going to cut it. We want stories that will make the reader wonder about the writer’s sanity. Give us your worst.

Stories between 2000-5000 words, no flash fiction. We have a limited amount of space, so no stories longer than 5000 words please. Place “Ruthless” in the subject line.

We want Bios from all writers as well. Make it fun. No boring lists of previous publications. Pick your favorite 2 or 3 if you like, but we want creative bios.

We will be giving a prize of $25 for our favorite story. We are unable to give contributor’s copies at this time.

Shock us!
