Tartarus Press




We are currently reading submissions of short story collections and novels.



Word count: We are looking for short story collections and novels of between 75,000 and 120,000 words


Subject matter and style: We would like to receive literary strange/supernatural fiction. We are not interested in high fantasy, violent horror or young adult fiction. If you write within a traditional genre such as vampire or ghost fiction then please make sure that the more clich├ęd trappings of your genre are, at best, a very marginal part of your work. Please note: we do not publish teen, children's or young adult fiction.


Payment: to be negotiated.


Submissions: Electronic submissions should be sent to rosalieparker@btinternet.com and we would prefer your work as a Word or rtf attachment. Mail submissions can be sent to us at the address at the top left of this page, but please remember that if we are to mail a reply we will need a stamped, self-addressed envelope or return postage. (No IRCs or non-UK stamps please!) Please send a synopsis or first two or three chapters/stories when first getting in contact.


Please note, we are not accepting single short story submissions for the Strange Tales series at the moment.
