Thurston Howl Publications is now accepting submissions for its eighth volume of its HOWLERS series, Devilish Deals.
Deadline: October 15, 2021
Word count: 2,500-8,000; a little above and a little below will be acceptable
What do Needful Things, the state of Georgia, and details have in common? They all have the Devil. And in two of those, the Devil is known for making deals... This anthology challenges you to come up with stories where people make unique deals with the Dark Lord. I want to see people summoning Satan so they can have a once-in-a-lifetime orgy in hell. I want to see people doing unspeakable things in order to just pass a college chemistry test. I want to see Baphomet making deals with humans just so he can have a chance to try kimchi for the first time. Horrific. Erotic. Comedic. As long as it's unique and has that Satanic deal!
