1. "This is a fucking fantastic anthology."
2. "One of the most horrifying anthologies I have ever read."
3. "Is this the perfect anthology for lovers of horror video games? Yeah. I think so. I can't think of anything else that starts you this far out on the edge of the cliff and keeps you there throughout the entire narrative."
Submissions are now officially closed for Violent Vixens: An Homage to Grindhouse Horror. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who sent in a story! We've received 200 submissions! Our staff will be reading stories non-stop over the next three weeks, and then we will choose our favorite stories for the TOC. I'll be sending out responses through email all throughout August. If you haven't heard back by September 1st, please get in touch with me through the CONTACT section of our website or through email.
We'll be in touch soon. Cheers, and stay safe everyone :)

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who submitted a story to Negative Space. Overall, this second submission period was much shorter than the first one (only 15 days), but we still received eighty stories total, which is very close to the same amount we received during the initial three-month submission period! Although we read many outstanding stories, we could only accept four. Those new authors are: Maggie Slater, JC Martinez, Amelia Gorman, and PL McMillan! You can check out their bios on the DPP website here: https://www.darkpeninsulapress.com/our-authors.html
Here is the final TOC (in no particular order):
“It’s Inside” by SR Miller
“Curiosity’s Child” by Jude Reid

The second round of submissions is now officially closed for Negative Space: An Anthology of Survival Horror, and we received some outstanding submissions. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who took the time to write and/or submit a story for review. Although the submission window was relatively short this time around, we still received a whole slew of wonderful stories. We can't wait to read through the slush pile and start adding to our expanding TOC!
As far as a time frame goes, we'll be reading stories over the next two weeks, then making our final selections shortly thereafter. We'll be in touch soon.
