Per their guidelines, “We want unique stories about side shows, freak shows, travelling shows, carnivals, circuses, and fairs. Stories may fall into one or more of three genres: horror, fantasy, and science fiction (although typically we do not expect many science fiction stories). Although we are looking for original stories, we will consider reprints, but probably will accept no more than two--we really want original work. Story length should be somewhere between 1,500 and 5,000 words.”
They pay $12 for Original Stories & $7 for Reprints.
For those unfamiliar with Sam’s Dot, they offer a wide range of fantastic publications from managing editor, Tyree Campbell. Titles include Champagne Shivers, edited by Cathy Buburuz, The Drabble, edited by Terrie Leigh Relf and many, many more.
