Welcome Home to the Mausoleum where the Dead come to play!
Attention Horror Readers:

Attention Horror Writers:
Do you have an original short story you want to have published? All first and second time published and self-published writers welcome. If we publish it, we will showcase your story and promote your book or website right underneath your featured work in the hallowed halls of our magazine. If available, we will also post your featured author bio and picture on the site for the months your story is published. Submit us your best unpublished fiction! You can promote your book directly through your own channels of promotion and still get your name out to the masses. We don't charge fees for reading your story. We are the bootcamp of horror. Our philosophy is this: since no one becomes famous overnight, it's imperative for new writers to get exposure and acquire a good fan base. So, it's all about having your stories read, initially. We have become a launching ground for authors, who get feedback from our editors to learn and grow before submitting to pro paying markets. Moreover, we are a theme based magazine, which means by hosting a challenging theme, we force writers to write fresh stories, instead of submitting older works/reprints or recycled rejects. Anyone published in SNM Mag can make it in the pro paying market and we are here to trigger and ignite that dark inspiration for writers.
SNM Mag Promotion:
Fear not, we have covered all the bases. We are registered with all the major horror directory venues such as Duotrope, Preditors & Editors, Ralan, Horrorfind, Horrorgenre, Every Writer's Resource, and more. Additionally, we are listed on all the major search engines like Google, Yahoo,
We are open to submissions all year -- and the floodgates are opened! Horror writers wanted dead or alive for morbid cryptic weavings and grim scribe offerings! If you have an original work of horror between 2000-5000 words, then send it here, we want to see it! We will also provide feedback if we do not accept it -- usually within sixty days. We accept subs all year around but review 40 days to month featured.
Please read our submission page guidelines before submitting.

We're live with "April Antichrist Adolescents" issue #53. We thank everyone who submitted to us for June's theme. We received a total of 68 submissions for June Jitterbugs. We've chosen 8 featured stories for the upcoming issue. We're now open to review "August Asylums" submissions.
Greetings My Screamin' Demons,
We are proud to present a brand new theme for SNM Mag, issue # 53 & 54! This is our April Antichrist Adolescents issue, featuring 8 truly twisted stories from both new and previously published SNM Mag Authors. Now, this issue in particular is extremely dark, twisted and depraved, with quite an interesting variety of creepy kids, post apocalyptic kids, children possessed by the devil, zombie kids, a dark fairy tale, and one story that goes beyond crossing the line with about every taboo all in one. It will leave you repulsed, horrified, intrigued and gluttonized, wanting more, yet begging for it stop because your brain can’t handle it! This issue personifies what true horror is all about, and even though each story features creepy kids in some way shape and form, all are diversified and stand apart from each other with a unique narrative. We are especially proud of the authors who were accepted for this theme and we invite you to bear witness to their darkest offerings. This is actually the first time we have hosted this theme and are damn proud of it, too!
Announcements: We would like to thank everyone who left us guestbook comments in support of our authors about their featured stories and hope the trend continues. We would also like to announce that by popular demand that we have changed the font color of our stories from green to a white-on-a-black background, so it’s a little more friendly on the eye. SNM Mag will also be doing some upcoming book reviews for other horror presses like The Horror Zine and Dark Discoveries/Nameless Magazine in the next issue. Oh, did we forget mention that May marks our 6 year anniversary as a press and yes, we are still around today as the most well-known market for new, up-and-coming speculative horror and dark fiction writers. We are the official bootcamp of the horror writing world.
