Wow, were there a ton of zombie stories in those books.
Anyhow: Nightmare Magazine is beyond slick, the guidelines are clear and kind of sweet (this isn’t always the case, a lot of guidelines pages out there are sorta bitchy) (including mine), and they pay professional rates. Best of all, this market opens on May 15th so you have just enough time to polish up your best piece and send it out.
I’m working on something right now, so I can add his response to my wall of high-profile rejections.
