  • Additional info

    The Other Folk publishes short, horrific prose dealing with horror tropes, themes, and subjects—for our Fables for the Dying series. We’re interested in a wide range of horror subgenres, including but not limited to psychological horror, ghost stories, surrealist and cosmic horror, horror-comedy, broody gothy stuff, body horror, and eco-horror. Really though, our tastes contain multitudes. We welcome submissions from all walks of life, especially if you identify as part of a marginalized group or community.
