Monday Markets - Year's Best Body Horror - Aug 2017 (via @GehennaBooks)

I don't want to make it look like we're just pushing horror markets here, but hey, have another horror market! Gehenna and Hinnom Press are after body horror submissions for their first anthology:

We are seeking stories for this anthology that are of a Cronenberg-style theme. If you don’t know who David Cronenberg is, we suggest watching clips or the entire length of films such as Videodrome, The Fly, and Scanners.

Genres can meld together. Science fiction, horror, weird fiction, cosmic horror, fantasy, all of these are acceptable as long as the stories don’t deviate from the body horror nature of the anthology.

As defined by Wikipedia: BODY HORROR, BIOLOGICAL HORROR, ORGANIC HORROR OR VISCERAL HORROR IS HORROR FICTION IN WHICH THE HORROR IS PRINCIPALLY DERIVED FROM THE GRAPHIC DESTRUCTION OR DEGENERATION OF THE BODY. SUCH WORKS MAY DEAL WITH DECAY, DISEASE, PARASITISM, MUTATION, OR MUTILATION.

They're looking for flash and short fiction between 250 and 8,000 words, including reprints. Pay is a token 3c per 10 words, with a minimum of $5 USD for pieces 2,000 words and below. I've done the math for you and it caps out around the $25 mark.
