An Anthology of Very Short Horror Fiction

Edited by M. W. Anderson


MicroSHOCKS has been picked up by Scrybe Press!  While many details have yet to be worked out, the completed manuscript will run about 50,000 words, and the pay rate will be $.01/word.  I have retained all original submissions, so I'll be contacting authors who submitted their tales last year.  PLEASE DO NOT QUERY about your story--if your work is selected, I'll contact you to see if it is still available.  If need be, I'll reopen for submissions--but it's impossible to tell just yet.  Hang in there, and watch this space for more information.


Obscure Visions

Proposed by M. W. Anderson

(was to be published by 3F Publications)

Will this anthology ever materialize?  Hard to say...though several talented authors signed on for this project,

3F Publications' demise left me with little hope of this anthology's survival.  However, I will continue to market this anthology to publishers, and if I can find a new home for OV, I'll contact previously invited authors and post guidelines & info on this site and at

A Note for potential publishers:
