Editor Johnny Worthen Taking Pitches at World Horror Provo Utah

Omnium Gatherum editor Johnny Worthen will be taking pitches at the World Horror Convention April 28 - May 1 in Provo Utah.

Omnium Gatherum publishes horror, weird fiction and dark fantasy. In the five years of operation, several titles have been nominated for awards. This year two Omnium Gatherum novels are on the short list for the Bram Stoker Award. Congratulations to John Claude Smith (Riding the Centipede) and Ian Welke (End Times at Ridgemont High)

Johnny is looking for novels (50k words) and novellas (20k - 50k words) that twist the conventions of horror, weird fiction or dark fantasy in new and interesting ways. Stories with unexpected settings, main characters not often featured in the genre fiction and stories with supernatural beings other than vampires, werewolves or zombies have the best chance of acceptance. If your story is too quirky, odd or disturbing to share with the folks at your day job Omnium Gatherum might be the publisher for you.
