THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF BEST NEW HORROR

Stephen Jones has announced that he is now reading for the fifteenth volume of THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF BEST NEW HORROR, which will be published as a trade paperback in the UK by Robinson and in the USA by Carroll & Graf in 2004.

This is a REPRINT anthology. He is looking for horror and dark fantasy stories and novellas, either supernatural or psychological, which were FIRST PUBLISHED between December 2002 and December 2003. Electronic publication is acceptable, but all submissions should be either in manuscript, galley or photocopy format. No e-mail submissions.

Space in the book is obviously limited and the competition is tough, so only the most exemplary fiction will be chosen. Do not send multiple submissions, only what you consider your best work. Even if you think it may have already been seen by the editor, if in doubt send another copy anyway.

Include a brief covering letter with your name and address, giving your bio/bibliographical information and details of publication. Also include an e-mail address if you want to be notified when the book is full. All material received will be considered disposable. The deadline for receiving stories is February 1st, 2004. You will be contacted after that date if your story has been accepted. Payment is on publication.

THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF BEST NEW HORROR also includes an extensive annual overview of the previous year in horror. To be aware of material published (especially from the small press), the editor needs to have seen it. This includes novels, collections, anthologies, poetry, art books, reference works, magazines and chapbooks covering fiction, non-fiction and films. All appropriate titles received will get a mention in the "Introduction", and publishers may also be listed in the book's "Useful Addresses" section.

All material for inclusion should be sent to: "The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror #15", c/o 130 Park View, Wembley, Middx HA9 6JU, England. The editor and publishers are not responsible for any material that goes missing.

 


THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF BEST NEW HORROR VOLUME FOURTEEN

THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF BEST NEW HORROR VOLUME FOURTEEN is available in bookstores next month. It includes fiction by Ramsey Campbell, Basil Copper, Stephen Gallagher, Glen Hirshberg, Brian Hodge, Graham Joyce, Caitlin Kiernan, Kelly Link, Paul McAuley, China Miéville, Kim Newman, Nicholas Royle, Jay Russell, David J. Schow, Jeff VanderMeer and many others.
