CultureCult Press, invites fiction submissions for publication in its anthology of horror fiction “Haus” (Expected release: October 2022). The extended deadline for submission is October 5, 2022.

This Halloween, we are looking to read and publish some deliciously creepy haunted house stories in our ominously titled anthology ‘Haus

Horror stories of ALL SUB-GENRES are invited.

In case you are choosing to fall back on the adage: a haunted house is a haunted house is a haunted house, we beg you to peel the curtains of a house made of candies, inside which a witch is planning to cook two lost children.

If witches aren’t your pick of poison, how about a classic poltergeist infestation, or perhaps a demon that wants to possess the tiniest member of the family.

Maybe your haunted house has a portal to a Lovecraftian universe in its basement, or it’s the forbidden house in town which kids must visit on Halloween to prove that they are kids no more!

PLEASE NOTE that this is an anthology with a THEME. ONLY those horror pieces that feature a haunted house, shall be considered for publication.


Short Story: (between 1500-8000 words) Send no more than TWO short stories per submission.

Flash Fiction: (between 50-1500 words) Send no more than THREE flash fictions per submission.
