Submission policy



With years of Hollywood producing dog shit time after time and celebrities losing their goddamn minds during the Coronavirus, it seems more appropriate than ever to do something at their expense. Deadman’s Tome doesn’t pull punches when it comes to controversial anthologies. We explored conspiracy theories in The Conspiracy Issue, dove head first into Satanism with Satan is your Friend, and pissed off a bunch of super Jesus fans with He’s Risen. But we’ve yet to do an anthology about celebrities. More specifically, celebrities being chased and gutted by maniacs.

That’s going to change with Deadman’s Tome Hollywood Holocaust. Thanks to Duke 3D for the name idea.

The guidelines are as follows:

  • Original works (no reprints)
  • 1k to 5k in word length
  • Must be edited
  • Send only ONE submission
  • Brutal, extreme horror with celebrities as fodder.
  • No limitation on content at all. Our tag line is Horror with no Limits, and we live by that.
  • submission call ends June 15th

What do YOU get in return IF your work is accepted?

  • $25 dollar token payment
  • Invite to the Deadman’s Tome podcast

  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.
