Novel Noctule is an online, monthly independent fiction magazine dedicated to new weird horror; we use horror to shed light on the human condition. Issues contain two or three original stories, poetry, artwork, creator spotlights, and related works of terror.
We publish on the 28th of each month. Our eighth issue launched on August 28th, 2020: We are currently accepting submissions on a rolling basis!
