Seeking spooky stories and eerie or eerie-beautiful poetry.

The range of story types sought is broad: classic, gothic, supernatural, quiet, and psychological horror, near-future dystopian tales, other speculative fiction, realistic terror (extreme weather, danger in nature, being lost – to name a few), dark folklore and fairytale, dark fantasy, dark literary fiction and more.

The issues of Frost Zone Zine have some free content, to read online, and are available for purchase in eBook and print formats.

If your submission is accepted it will be published in any combination of the online, electronic, and print version of that issue. Your accepted submission will also be listed online in the issue details.

Submissions which are shown fully online will each have a dedicated page while that issue is current, after which they will be transferred to an archival post with other items from that issue.

PRINT: currently, the print issues are POD (print-on-demand) paperback books through Amazon. A limited supply of digest size, B&W zines may also be available soon. The plan is to transition to short-run printed zines going forward. The zines are digest size: 5.5″ x 8.5″, i.e. small and thin, in the tradition of some anthology magazines post-pulp-era and pre-2000’s.

Published quarterly, the first issue was published on September 08, 2020. The second issue was published on December 08, 2020.
