Hinnom Magazine Calls For Submissions –Apply

Hinnom Magazine seeks authors who have unique voices, interesting writing styles, and unparalleled storytelling talents. They are looking for stories that fit the themes of Weird Fiction and Cosmic Horror. Horror, Science Fiction, and Fantasy are all welcomed, as long as they fit in the realms of Weird and Cosmic.
