Haunt Jaunt has an open call for their upcoming Shadow People & Cursed Objects anthology: "What we're looking for: 13 fiction stories about ghosts or haunted objects. (As long as your story contains one or the other, we want to read it!) We’re open to any genre of fiction. Your story doesn’t have to be horror. It can be a paranormal romance, literary, humor. (Although, we’re not going to lie. We love horror. But we’re looking for the very best stories about ghosts and/or haunted objects that we can find.) It must, however, involve either a ghost or a haunted object. (We can’t reiterate this enough.) The twist: Our anthology is going to be a little different. We want readers to participate by trying to figure out if your tale of a ghost/shadow person or haunted object is based on a true story or not. The print version will have a section at the back detailing whether the author based their tale on a true story…or if they culled it purely from their imagination." Length: up to 5K; Payment: $50.00 + 10 print copies. Reprints okay, electronic submissions through online form only, see guidelines for more details. Deadline: July 31st, 2015.
