Call for Submissions - Issue Six

Here Be Monsters is putting out the call once again. Submissions are open for Issue Six!

Duane, Vincent, and I spent the majority of the year working on secret projects (Duane and I fiddled around a bit, but Vincent actually created life). I'll probably write more about my time away from publishing HBM later, but right now I want to let everyone know that we're back and better than ever.

The exact requirements are available on our submissions page. We're looking for your most exciting speculative fiction, in any genre. If you've already submitted (or even been published by us) please feel free to send us something new.

You can also send any questions to our email at

Personally, I'm really excited for this round of submissions. All of us here have big plans and renewed energy to throw into the next issue. I don't doubt that it'll be our biggest and best yet. Also, spending some time away from the anthology has shown me just how impressive it is. I know I am biased, but I don't think there are any Canadian publications that put out the kinds of stories we do at the level of quality that we have. Science fiction, fantasy, mystery, whatever. The best of this stuff just hooks the reader in like nothing else, so I want to print it, post it, and share it with as many people as I can.

Thank you, looking forward to the next few months,

Alex Newcombe


  1. Hi!

    I'd like to submit to this anthology, and I have a story that's almost, but not quite finished. When's the deadline for submissions?

  2. Deadline is going to be January 16th. Anything we receive after that will still be reviewed for the next issue though.

    Thanks for your interest!

  3. Thank you so much for the quick reply! :)

  4. Do you have any formatting requirements?

  5. Hello Rubbersoul,

    No, we have no particular formatting requirements. As long as we can open the file and read it, that's all we need.


  6. Hey Duane
    Thank you for coming to speak at our educational technology class.This is very interesting!
