Money from Old Slush

New horror magazine launches with an interesting commercial twist ... er, charge the authors a fee for submitting fiction.

There's a new horror mag - 'Thirteen' - recently launched, which is aiming to bring you thirteen works of horror thirteen times a year - one issue a month - with two in October (for the 'hard of math', that's 169 horror stories a year).

However, methinks there's an aspect of their submission process which might attract a little more attention than their actual launch.

Apparently, it costs 2.00 for would-be writers to submit a horror story to Thirteen, without any firm guarantee of publication. Anyone who has a story accepted by the title will then receive a free copy of the magazine (worth 3.50) and the best story writer will receive 113.00 once their story is published.

How the best story is to be judged wasn't mentioned on their web site when we visited.

Brilliant. We just wish we had thought of this one first at SFcrowsnest - Uncle Geoff, are you listening?
