Greetings from the Ether,
We have been anxious to say these words, and alas, here we are. Gehenna & Hinnom Books is now officially open to submissions from publishers for our Year’s Best Cosmic Horror 2019 Anthology.
What is Cosmic Horror? Cosmicism, or Lovecraftian Horror, is a subgenre which emphasizes the unknown or unknowable, the fear of things beyond our comprehension, and the insignificance of mankind in the grand scheme of the universe. Reality erodes in this genre, and often science or discovery are responsible for this corruption.
We’re looking for the absolute best Cosmic Horror tales from 2018. Publishers are welcome to submit individual stories, anthologies, collections, etc., to our email in PDF format, though we will also accept other formats, such as Mobi. and ePub. Please send emailed submissions with “Year’s Best Cosmic Horror” in the title. If you wish to send print copies of selected works, please use the below address:
Gehenna & Hinnom Books

510 N 38th Ave

For writers who are unsure if their work has been submitted, or will be submitted, please forward all questions to the email address above. Make sure to contact your publishers before sending any queries.
Specifics on submission qualifications:
- Stories to be considered for reprint should fall under 12,000 words.
- Stories that exceed this word count, novelettes, novels, collections etc., can and should be submitted, but will only be referenced in our “Overview” of 2018.
- The final cut-off date for submissions is May 31st, 2019. Any submissions sent after that date will not be considered.
We are gunning for a summer release of this title, and it will likely move to print come June or July. Deadline is SUBJECT TO CHANGE, but the sooner we receive your stories, the better.
Thank you so much for stopping by, and we cannot wait to read your fantastic works.
