It's baaaaaaaaaaaaack! Our annual collection of funny paranormal stories. Story must be funny and have supernatural/paranormal elements. Previous published stories include a farting contest with the Boogeyman, a Shriner who becomes a weregoat, and a hoarding intervention at the home of a wizard. If you'd like to learn more, our previous collections are on Amazon and have the "Look Inside!" feature.
Your story length should be 2000-6000 words. If you sub something longer than that, it'd better be really funny or you need to be Stephen King. Our submission window is October 1-31, 2015. Please do not sub sooner because there's a 90% chance it won't get read till October anyway, and could get buried under other emails. Publication of SF3 should be in spring 2016 (note the use of 'should' here).

Gwen Mayo's first novel, Circle of Dishonor, is now available on Kindle again. The print version will follow shortly.
Nessa Donnelly and her brother were Pinkerton agents during the Civil War. After her brother was murdered by the Knights of the Golden Circle, she took his identity and pursued them. Fifteen years later, she's still living under her brother's name, looking for the killers. When Lexington prostitute Belle Brezing comes to her for help, Nessa follows a string of bodies that lead her to the Knights... but if she's not careful, she could be their next trophy.
This revision (the original was published by Pill Hill Press) reveals more details about Nessa Donnelly's background. It also contains a section of historical notes after the story.
If you didn't catch the novel in its first run, grab it now. The sequel, Concealed in Ash, will be out later this year.
"Mayo’s depiction of late-19th century Kentucky is fascinating, and the mystery is ably handled. The author has a knack for the telling detail, giving us a picture of a society struggling to recover from the consequences of the Civil War. Recommended."
