GRIMOIRE OF THE FOUR IMPOSTORS

JOURNEY INTO THE OCCULT, WHERE HISTORY IS HORROR

Presented in six tales, GRIMOIRE OF THE FOUR IMPOSTORS takes readers on a dark tour of the 17th century, where corners of the world stand in shadow. Here grimoires possess secrets, impostors beguile the unwary, temptation turns macabre, and the night is no friend.

THE WOLFSHADOW TRILOGY

The Wolfshadow Trilogy runs wildly in a world of darkly comic horror, scathing social commentary, pop-cultural references, and horror-thriller territory that will dazzle both casual readers and thrill fans of werewolf fiction everywhere.

FOLK HORROR & GOTHIC

SAGAS OF IRTH

Sagas of Irth pursues the adventures of Farys, Sibyl, and Fiss’Q as they do their part to try to defeat the matchless Manticore, whose depraved desire to dominate threatens to bring about a return of the fearsome blood magic the Sorians used to pollute and poison the Irth.

OPEN CALL

GOTHIC FICTION

OPEN JANUARY 1–31, 2022

With its emphasis on a sublime atmosphere of picturesque scenery, extraordinary and exotic locations, mystery, and horror, Gothic Fiction carved an indelible impression in the literary world. Beginning with Horace Walpole’s The Castle of Otranto in 1764, the Gothic has stalked the literary shadows for centuries, delivering tangled and tortured narratives of family trauma, psychological distress, and terrible secrets.

The terrifying appeal of the Gothic lies within its ability to invoke a pleasing and memorable dread. Nosetouch Press is excited to open a call for a Gothic novel (60,000 words+) or novella (35,000 words+), encouraging writers to delve into the darkness and send us their best work. Previously unpublished work only—no reprints. No YA, poetry, or short story collections. Diverse voices are welcome.

We will not consider stories with excessive gore, splattercore, cosmic horror, exploitation/trauma porn, romance/erotica-centered plots, or child abuse-driven fiction.
