Midnight Echo announces Guest Editor for Issue 17

MIDNIGHT ECHO 17 will open to submissions later this year and we’re very happy to announce that the guest editor for issue 17 will be AHWA ex-President and Bram Stoker Award-nominee®, Greg Chapman.

Here’s what Greg will be looking for:

Give me nightmares.

More importantly, get to the “heart of horror” (take this figuratively and literally). Showcase how horror can be powerful in fiction. Scare me and move me at the same time.

Explore the depths of the human psyche and then tear it apart. The dark night of the soul.

Your stories, non-fiction, poetry and art can encompass any sub-genre of horror, just ensure it’s terrifying and leaves me thinking about it long after I’ve read the final words.
