Scary Fiction

With the growing popularity of our True Scary Stories section, it became clear that readers are looking for a place to post their mythology-based scary fiction as well.  We heard you, and now here is the section for original works of fiction from Gods-and-Monsters readers. 

The True Scary Stories forum is still the place to post recollections of true events.  Use this page for submitting your own original myth or monster based fiction.

 

 

Please make sure all works are YOURS, and are original works (by YOU).  Anything in the realm of the supernatural, mythology, monsters, creatures, unexplained events, UFOs, or the like are welcome here.

Please note that with so many submissions I can't publish them all.  Your best chance of getting a submission posted here is to do a really good job with the spelling and grammar.  The less I have to edit, the more likely you'll see your story featured here.

 

 

Have A Great Story You Want To Share?

This Scary Fiction forum is where you can post original myth or monster-based short stories.

All submissions are reviewed prior to posting. Please only post your own original work. Copyrighted works of others will not be posted. Thanks!
