Novel Noctule is an online, monthly independent fiction magazine dedicated to the horror genre. 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 third issue launched on March 28th, 2020: We are currently accepting submissions on a rolling basis!
