New Flash Fiction Section Added to List of Publishers of Short Fantasy Fiction

The title says it all, really. I’ve added a flash fiction section to my list of publishers for short fantasy fic. There are about ten on there so far. I’ll keep adding to it over the next few days and weeks.

As always, if you know of any publishers you think should be on there, drop me an email.

    Nice list and a lot of work! I don’t personally do flash fiction, but it should come in handy for a lot of people. Thanks!

    Hi Richie,

    A question: do fantasy publishers include Gothic horror – the Dracula type (not chain saws)?

    Thanks for you great help.

      Hi Chris. Some do. Look for those that publish speculative fiction as opposed to fantasy. Horror falls under that umbrella. There are a few grimdark publishers on there too. Best to check the guidelines before subbing.

      Goos luck!
