Scary Dairy Press LLC is a small press dedicated to finding and publishing the best of dark, bizarre and strange fiction.
Wow. Our “Mother’s Revenge” project recently left Scary Dairy Press’s nest and is living on its own via Amazon.com or a bookstore near you. This anthology has been a joy for our team to work on. And great news! In 2018, the anthology will be released in audio, via Audible.com! Narrators are Meghan Crawford and Tom Taverna, two very talented voices who will bring these stories to life even more! Stay tuned for more updates on the Audible version in the coming weeks!

“Terror Politico” is now in progress, gestating and embryating–churning and burning–preparing to be ready before the chaos of the November elections. This is an anthology you’ll just have to Tweet about!

“Terror Politico” 2018 Submission Guidelines
This is the second annual submission call for the 2018 Scary Dairy anthology: Terror Politico!
Scary Dairy Press is seeking short story submissions of 3000-7000 words max for the anthology: Terror Politico!
This is a terrorizing anthology about the evils of politics, and the Capital Hill monsters that lurk in our political arena. Take on a favorite topic of debate (examples: firearms, contraception, women’s rights, racism) and escort it into the fiction arena. Put a paranormal, or monster spin on it, or take it into the future. You decide! Any aspect of politics that keeps you awake at night could have a home here. If you have a question about appropriate content, then message us!
What we want: This anthology may include one or more genres such as: horror, dark fiction, dark fantasy, speculative fiction, or bizarro. Your story may occur in any time, place or space. Mix it up, but make it thought provoking and disturbing to the human conscience. It’s up to you whether you offer the world an answer to political corruption, or end the tale with the death and destruction of stars and stripes on the very last page.
What we don’t want: No child abuse/sexual abuse scenes. No gratuitous splatter, gore or rape. If you use it, there must be a clear purpose for it. No overused tropes (vampires, werewolves, zombies) unless you clearly have something unusual and unique. If you’re not sure, then email/message us and ask at email@example.com
