**CLOSED** Open Call: Deranged Anthology


Got some sick, twisted suppressed sexual desire you’ve been dying to write about? Well, that crazy Welsh writer David Owain Hughes and I might be able to help you release your pent-up tension.

Check out our new open call for Deranged, an anthology celebrating taboos. Horror, splatterpunk, horrotica, bizarro, and black comedy are the chosen genres, so get your gimp masks on, you deranged fucks, and jump on board!

Here are the juicy (or moist, maybe?) details plus a teaser of the concept cover artwork:



Most of us have sexual fantasies. For those of us who do, these fantasies are harmless enough, and we have no problem sharing them with our partners in the hope they’ll indulge us. Maybe your fantasy is seeing a female in a good pair of black stockings, a nice pair of high-heels and a short skirt? Or possibly a muscleman dressed as a fireman? Perhaps the fantasy involves being tied up, or having your bits locked away in a chastity device? Whipped? Beaten? Ridiculed?

Maybe you border more on the extreme edge: fucking gadgets or sticking a dick in a Hoover until it bleeds, cannibalism, torture?

Or maybe your carnal desires are deemed illegal in your neck of the woods?

Whatever it is, we need it. Repressing it would be futile—unless it’s a killer kink or perversion that’s going to land you in hot water up to you neck if left unchecked . . .

GENRES: Horror, Horrotica, Splatterpunk, Bizarro, Black Comedy

We are looking for original, well-layered stories with strong character development. Your tale should feature a woman as the key protagonist/antagonist and should be cleanly edited before being submitted.

Other than that, this is no holds barred—do not hold back.

WORD COUNT: 5k-10k (firm on the minimum, flexible on the max if the story is superb).

Please send your best work. Only 10 of you deranged folk will be able to take our hands, interlace your fingers with our sticky ones, and join us in our play room . . .

We hope to see your subs soon!



  1. This is a wonderful idea. I think that I may have quite a bit to offer regarding this subject. I am interested.
