Death by Killing is now open for submissions.

So next time you read an awesome story and want to tell the world about it, you can! (Or, um, at least you can tell the people who read this blog.) Write up a little something and send it to

Here's what I'm looking for:

-- Reviews of short fiction. This means short stories, flash, micro, novellas, novelettes, and short story collections are all welcome. Pretty much anything except for full-length novels.

-- The story must be by someone else.

-- All genres are welcome.

-- No specific word count. Fifty words is cool. A few hundred is cool. If you go over 1,000, be sure that it's really interesting stuff.

-- Don't worry about writing your most sparkling prose. The purpose of this site is simply to get the word out about great stories and promote writers who deserve to be heard.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.


  1. Cool format Chris! Great idea to promote writers who might not be getting the credit they deserve.

  2. I might have one for you over the weekend.

  3. I like the new layout.

    I have a question about the reviews. I'm reading the ebook "Top Suspense," 13 Classic Stories by Top Suspense Group. Most of the stories are previously published in magazines, etc. Does it disqualify the stories for review because this is indie pubbed by Top Suspense Group? Just wondering.

  4. It most certainly qualifies, Fiona. Send it on over!

  5. How about reviewing other people's stories from an anthology you have a story in? I rarely think I am the ONLY good author in an antho...

  6. Sarah--that's cool with me.

    To boil down the requirements to their essence:
    -- Fiction
    -- Not written by yourself
    -- Not a novel

    If it meets those three, you're good to go!

  7. Oh, I love this idea, I'll be sending reviews of my favs soon.
