Paperbound Anthology Slated For August Publication
The Ghost Story is thrilled to announce the upcoming publication of a paperbound anthology containing stories that have won or received honorable mentions in The Screw Turn Flash Fiction Competition and The Ghost Story Supernatural Fiction Award. Winners and honorable mentions in the current Screw Turn contest (deadline 1/31) will be included! Our contests began in the summer of 2015 with the online publication of the first set of Supernatural Fiction Award winners.
The anthology, entitled 21st Century Ghost Stories—Volume I, is a project of TGS and Wyrd Harvest Press, of Durham, U.K. Wyrd Harvest is connected to the international Folk Horror Revival community and it’s wildly popular Facebook page. Previous Wyrd Harvest publications include the anthologies Folk Horror Revival: Field Studies, Folk Horror Revival: Corpse Roads, and The Carnival of Dark Dreams, by Bob Curran and Andy Paciorek.
All proceeds from the sale of 21st Century Ghost Stories will be donated to projects of Britain’s Wildlife Trusts.
If your fiction has been published on TGS, expect to hear from us over the next few weeks concerning your inclusion in this anthology. And if you’re a writer who hasn’t yet won or received an an honorable mention in one of our contests . . . Volume II is tentatively scheduled for 2021!
