Oldstyle Tales is not solely interested in the speculative fiction of past decades, generations, and centuries;
we also invest in the future of our broad and expanding genre.
Whether you read Michael's yearly stories, write your own, or read your own, it is our wish that you will start a tradition of creating or consuming new speculative fiction as an homage to the past and a gift to the future.
Hallowe'en, like Christmas, is a lovely time to do this, and we hope you will follow along and enjoy "A Ghost Story for Hallowe'en" with a cup of hot tea, hot cider, or cold whiskey on one of those autumn nights when the leaves clatter on the sidewalk with mirthless laughter, and the shadows blur with the dark, faceless sky.
A JOURNAL OF CONTEMPORARY HORROR,
WEIRD FICTION, AND GHOST STORIES
WRITTEN BY OLDSTYLE TALES PRESS READERS
NOTE: We are not currently accepting submissions for "The Yellow Booke"
If you want to contribute to the weird and the horrible, we would love to help with that too. The Yellow Booke is an annual (or biannual, depending on the year) publication for living writers -- amateurs, professionals, and fans alike -- to showcase their speculative fiction and critical reviews. Horror, weird tales, dark fantasy, ghost stories, psychological terror, and supernaturalism are all welcome, as are any short essays examining your favorite horror stories.
