Dread Machine Anthology Submission | Prize: $800, Publication

The dread Machine seeks submission for their annual anthology. They want stories that evoke fear and dread on the theme “1986”. Prize is $800.

They want a scary recount of the year 1986 or our version of it. Do you remember a time before the internet? Before security cameras documented everything?

For our very first anthology, we’re seeking dread-inspiring stories that take place in 1986 — either the 1986 of our reality (Stranger Things) or an alternate version (Tales From the Loop). Bring us back to a simpler, scarier time. Let’s make something radical together.
