Dark Tales Magazine

Dark Tales Magazine publishes the best new horror, science fiction and speculative fiction from all over the world in a professionally illustrated and printed anthology. We have been doing so since 2003.

Six of the thirteen contributors to Dark Tales: Volume XV received 'honorable mentions' in Ellen Datlow's Best Horror of the Year Volume Four.

Every issue is available to purchase as an e-book.

We run a quarterly short story contest with prize money totalling £325. As part of the competition you can choose to purchase a tick-sheet critique and a complete edit. Subscribe and enter for free, securely online, or by post if you are in the UK.

We also offer a critique and edit service at a reasonable price outside the contest, to improve your chances of publication and competition success.
