Submission policy


It seems like more and more people are hating on America, completely ignoring the revolutionary approach to democracy, a legal document that restricts government intrusion, and how it changed the world through innovation.

With that in mind, the time seems right to go all out in a high-octane, explosive, and proudly patriotic anthology. Deadman’s Tome is calling for flash fiction submissions and artwork of a bold and resilient patriotic message.

Whether it be US troops going Rambo on NAZIs and commies, patriots kicking ANTIFA ass, or illustrations of beautiful pinups Deadman’s Tome wants it.

Normally, Deadman’s Tome publishes horror and dark fiction, but for this we’re throwing out the dark and gritty in favor of a bold and positive red, white, and blue message. We want stories that inspire hope, that remind people of the American dream, that wake people from their demoralized funk.

Submission guidelines:

  • Original flash fiction pieces 1000-1300 words
  • Original artwork (pinups okay, erotica not okay)
  • Stories that inspire hope, instill pride in America, and patriots smashing Communists and Facism.
  • No erotica
  • $10 token payment for stories
  • $25 token payment for artwork
  • Non-exclusive publishing agreement
  • Call closes 9/1/2020

  1. I have a number of short stories that could possibly be considered horror.. I could send you one to look at if you’d like?

    1. Hi, Mr. Deadman. Just wondering if you received my submission back in December? Never got confirmation. Cheers,

      1. Take that as a no then? Noticing replies to everyone but mine. All good. Cheers for the opportunity to sub.

  2. Hi,

    You mention flash fiction but list 4000 word approximate word count.

    Are you accepting shorter stories than this? That is, flash fiction?


  3. Seeing one of my alumni on here; I think he brought what he learned from being in The Ethereal Gazette with him. Mr. Deadman have you looked into Zahid Zaman or Alex Rivera? They would compliment your mag too — check David Wright from 2007 in this publication as you get to see him hold his own with Matthew S. Carroll and introduced Steven Morgan into the publication. You should try to tap this one for a submission. I will say this much of David, he’s the author who’s going to piss this bastard off. You should really had tapped Tom Kelly to do the artwork for this because he did my work justice.

  4. Pick up a copy of TRESPASS by Chris Miller, published with DEADMAN’S TOME. TRESPASS is an absolutely gripping read from the first chapter. It’s perfectly paced to keep the reader engaged. You won’t want to put the book down once you start reading it. Take a bow Mr. Chris Miller; I absolutely loved this book you wrote and DEADMAN’S TOME published. Good work by all parties.
