Ghost Stories

For as long as there have been stories, there have been ghost stories. Fiction Desk anthologies almost always feature one or two, but once in a while we also publish a collection dedicated to them. These ghost story collections are part of our main anthology line, a kind of series-within-a-series.

Our definition of 'ghost stories' is a broad one, but an honest one: although we do feature stories in the classic style, we generally give our contributors the freedom to step outside the rules and explore the supernatural in all its forms.

You can find details of our dedicated ghost story anthologies below. If you're interested in submitting work of your own for potential publication, take a look at our annual ghost story submission call.

Most of our volumes contain one or two tales of the supernatural, but the following anthologies are part of our dedicated 'New Ghost Stories' series:
