Open Call: Cold Anthology (Title TBD) with Death’s Head Press

Anticipated Release: January 2025

Death’s Head Press is putting together an anthology of cold/winter horror short stories.

Winter is a setting that lends itself to various horror tales, from survival tales to hauntings to slashers with buckets of blood in the snow. Humans long ago mastered survival in the cold, but what happens when one of the necessities (heat, shelter, food) is taken away? What if that lovely cabin in the woods comes with a helping of the supernatural or otherworldly? The stories can and should cover the wide spectrum of coldness. We aim to explore the what if of the cold.
