At the rate this year is flying, it will soon be Halloween again, which means another great edition of Trickster’s Treats, the annual charity horror anthology of flash and short fiction brought to you by the most un-horrible person in horror, Steve Dillon of Things in the Well Publications.
Following the success of the first two volumes, Trickster’s Treats3 is now open for submissions. This year’s theme, the Seven Deadly Sins, is a veritable writer’s playground!
Pride, Greed, Lust, Envy, Gluttony, Wrath, and Sloth – the Seven Deadly Sins. What’s your temptation? Trickster’s Treats 3 is seeking disturbingly delicious stories of darkness showcasing each of the sins. You’ll find full submission details here.
Like any great charitable cause, Trickster’s Treats 3 is going to be a collaborative effort, steered by like minded people. The edition will be in great hands with Co-editors Lee Murray, and Marie O’Regan, and I’m thrilled to be filling a submissions editor role along with six other sub editors: Tracie McBride, Noel Osualdini, Claire Fitzpatrick, William Marchese, and Kev Harrison.
Greg Chapman has done a sterling job with the cover, and the Trickster’s house is looking creepier than ever!
The sin I’m reading for is Gluttony. I’m really excited about the different ways writers will choose to interpret and explore this theme. All submissions are treated to the anonymity process, and will be read ‘blind’.
As always, Steve Dillon has chosen a very worthwhile cause for proceeds of Trickster’s Treats 3. This year, charity: water is the deserving recipient. With one in ten people lacking access to clean water around the world, charity: water is on a mission to partner with local organisations globally to provide long-lasting water and sanitation services.
Trickster’s Treats 3 is horror for a great cause, and I’m very proud to be part of it. Looking forward to reading your submissions…
Happy writing, happy reading, happy days …
