The official submission call for the AuthorsDen published project DYERS EVE. (Matt and Simon, you came to me in 2004 for an anthology -- I promised that I would get one going for you. You waited now here it is. Let's get this mosh pit going!)

This project doesn't have a title yet but when I get the stories I will come up with one. There will be three books planned for this. Since isn't running my GL's I am relying on facebook and myspace to make it happen. When the first Tabloid was done, the guidelines were just on (so go and bombblast the message boards with this.)

This is what I am seeking, Gothic Horror Fiction without the erotic content (violent and visceral perfect. Think a Grindhouse take on gothic horror. Read House of Spiders 3 for an idea what I want. Hit hard -- very hard with it. I want this to go toe to toe with Chimeraworld, but on a more epic scale -- Mike, buddy, be prepared to have run for your money. Go House of Pain on their ass, you House of Pain guys already know what I have in mind. House of Pain was a grindhouse horror site. As I said with TPII -- go hard or go home. In other words be ready to come in guns blazing. Something that gives a loud middle finger. Not horror that gets people laid, horror that is written to rule the f*cking world!) 

What I am going for is similar to METALLICA's ...AND JUSTICE FOR ALL. DYERS EVE is the final track. The line -- "I've outgrown that fucking lullabye"

Be sure to include social commentary (drug abuse, suicide, anti-abortion {I'm pro-life -- my story for this is done. I needed a vehicle to unleash it}, political violence {president kills himself in office,} mental illness, gun control {a frightening reality where no one is allowed to own a gun,} war {Show the ghosts of the Iraq War,} and God -- it's a secular anthology but I want to feature three Christian authors if they can do the Grindhouse style. Don't be preachy about it if you're going to a God story -- I want a raw vulgar display of power. If the story is able to hit me between the eyes, its in.  You have to make it really thought-provoking.)

Think H.P. Lovecraft, Rod Serling, John Milton, William Hope Hodgson, Bruce Dickinson (the novel, Chemical Wedding,) Barbara Shenouda (The Balkan Secret Conspiracy,) Ayn Rand (Anthem -- there will be a tribute to Ayn Rand anthology planned for Broken Mindframe Books,) Frank Perretti, Tedd Dekker, Stephen King, and Joe Hill. 

Word count: 6000-20,000 words (I want opuses with this. Don't send anything short, save that for Ethereal Gazette -- the gazette I will look at stories between 2300 to 30,000 words.)

Send submissions to Lakefossilpress [.] as a .doc or .odt attachment ( the program Open Office is the program I use and abuse. Make sure the stories are 1.5 spaced with the paragraphs indented after the first paragraph, use the rulers to indent.)

Subject line:  DYERS F*CKING EVE -- story title, author name

This is a 4theluv project and will be distributed at night clubs when I do signings. 

The Page count I am aiming for is 280 pages and 6.13 x 9.21 trade paperback(And will be published with in Association with, with an ISBN so it would be sold on Matt Miller been asking me for years to do the guidelines for the AuthorsDen project I didn't have a lot of time.  You asked for a long time, and I promised I would helm it -- let's get this m-therf--ker off the ground!  Matt you wanted an anthology -- let's do this!  You're getting a very hardcore horror anthology, something that will give the small press a run for its money.)

I am trying not to repeat the Tabloid Purposes series, I want to create something new and a lot darker with it -- something that will deliver the scares, and a really dark scare at that.

Spiritual warfare themes are fine -- just be visceral with it, don't hold back on the language either. I want this thing to be the most brutal and the darkest thing I ever produced as Grigori 3 said in the inside of their CD -- you will listen.

Fist time writers welcome, in fact they're encouraged. Just hit hard and fast with your story.  No minors submitting you must be 18 or just about to turn eighteen at the time you submit the story.

Feel free to spread these on your myspace bulletins. 


Publisher: with I want to hit harder than TP and Library of Unknown Horrors.  The proceeds for this goes to -- that's right I am offering to scare people for charity here.

No vampires sucking each other off or taking it from the rear,  I want none of that because I am a Christian.  I have strict submission rules towards that.  If you want an example what I've published before this, pick up Tabloid Purposes: Book Five.  If there is anyone going under the name "AngryInIllinois" trying to say they are in charge of Lake Fossil Press -- don't listen them.
