For our second anthology we want stories that explore the horror of solitude. This does not mean your story has to have solitary characters, it definitely can, but any story that dives into the theme of isolation and solitude will work for this collection. It could be the terror of no one believing the monster chasing you is real, or being completely alone in something while surrounded by millions of people, or it could be being forgotten and alone in a desolate place.
Cosmic horror, creature horror, slasher horror, it can all work in this collection as long as you submit a creative story focusing on solitude.
Word Count: 3,000 - 7,500
Payment: $5 for anything under 5000 words
$10 for anything over 5000 words
