May consider up to 2000 words, but query me first. Give me your best backyard or basement creepers, neighborhood terrors in the night, and the country roads to nowhere. DEADLINE: September 30th, 2017.

So start sending me stories. No poetry for this one. No fan fic, no ripping off the man and his worlds. You can create stories set on similar worlds, but magic and characters and humor should be all your own uniqueness. Deadline: January 15th, 2018.
