Nightscape Press will be opening to unsolicited submissions for our new novel charity line during the month of September, 2018, so have your submissions ready!

Accepted novels will earn an advance upon publication both for their author and for the charity of the author’s choice. The published novel will consist of both trade paperback and Kindle eBook editions earning quarterly royalties at 40%/40%/20% split between the author, their chosen charity, and Nightscape Press respectively.

We are interested in horror, weird fiction, science fiction, and fantasy novels of 60,000 words or more and YA novels within the same genres of 40,000 words or more for our Past Curfew Press imprint.

We’ll release more details as the month of September approaches!


During the month of August 2018, we will be open to submission for the ASHES AND ENTROPY Cover Art Contest! ASHES AND ENTROPY is an anthology of cosmic horror, noir, and neo-noir including new stories by Laird Barron, Damien Angelica Walters, John Langan, Kristi DeMeester, Jon Padgett, and many more. 

The winner of this contest will receive payment of $500 for the use of their submitted artwork as the cover for various editions of ASHES AND ENTROPY. If the Kickstarter is funded, the winning artist will also receive a bonus of $500! 

Please send all cover art submissions and/or queries to There are few aesthetic guidelines for this contest. Use the title of the anthology, with the anthology's genres in mind, to spark your own creative ideas for this cover. 

Please create only the front cover for now, if your piece is chosen, when the book's interior is finalized, we will have you create the rest of the cover spread to its exact spine width. The front cover dimensions are 6 X 9 (with bleed. Here are some more detailed info for specifications) and we will prefer 600DPI for the final version but a clear more web-friendly size will be fine for submitting. Thank you and good luck!

***Clarification*** The full title of the anthology is ASHES AND ENTROPY. I decided to ditch the subtitle for those who have been following the book's progress since the beginning. Please include "edited by Robert S. Wilson" as well. 

***Update!*** We have decided to allow up to three art submissions per artist!
