DarkFuse Magazine's The Vault Series focuses on reprinting currently uncollected works that are no longer available on the market (including the web). Many authors have published short fiction in limited editions or in print magazines no longer in circulation. The Vault's focus is to get this fiction back in front of readers and DarkFuse Magazine is one of the leading online publications with currently more than 5,000 registered members (1200+ paid subscribers). 


Original Fiction: Horror only. Reprint stories.  1500-3500 words.

Payment: DarkFuse does not pay for reprinted work. However, accepted authors will get a 1-year subscription to the online magazine (worth $59.88) + Ad spot (worth $50) for the author to promote his or her personal website or work available at or other retailers (no competing publishers please).

Rights Taken: One-time web publication rights.  One year exclusive agreement before submitting to another market. Non-exclusive archive rights for the life of the online magazine.  All other rights revert to the author on publication.

Response Time: 6 months or less.


Q: Can you let me know if my story qualifies?
A: If your story can be read in an eBook at Amazon or other retailers (as part of a collection or as a standalone story) or can be read on a website, we will not feature it in The Vault.  The Vault's purpose is to bring back great stories that are now out of print and no longer accessible to horror readers.
