In total, there were 204 submissions. There were so many brilliant and well-written ideas that it was agonizing to be only able to select a small handful. I wish I could have included many more authors, but space was limited. Final tally to print is 25 stories comprising about 106,000 words of all original fiction!

All final notices, either rejection or acceptance, have been sent via e-mail. If there are any questions or concerns, you may e-mail me directly at:

This anthology will be published by Dark Moon Books:

This anthology is still estimated to be released next spring for World Horror Convention, 2012 -

Thank you again to all who submitted stories - I truly enjoyed reading every one.

Keep writing!


  1. Congratulations to all, and hats off Eric for pulling this collection together!

  2. Awesome news, Eric. Can't wait to read the book!

  3. Great. Good luck with your project!
    Also, as readers, we need a book or several more - fat anthologies with big names (new stuff) and classic retrospective (old stuff) of lost race/lost world/lost civilizations/hollow earth genres :)
