Independent Legions Publishing wants original horror stories for the October 2017 anthology The Beauty of Death 2 – Death by Water. The editors are Alessandro Manzetti and Jodi Renée Lester.
Stories should be 4,000 to 5,000 words. Payment is $100 for exclusive English-language rights for 3 years, which are fairly long terms for speculative fiction publishers. Keep that in mind if you decide to submit, or if you get accepted and want to negotiate different terms.
The publisher notes:
All types of horror are welcome. Sex or violence in a story should be artistically justified; no excessive gore. No stories about child abuse of any kind. We welcome all subgenres and forms of speculative fiction.

I do not knowingly announce submission calls by publishers who do not fulfill their contractual obligations. However, readers are responsible for conducting their own due diligence when submitting work and negotiating contracts.
