We are going on hiatus after we get the last two issues of NN out (pending). J.D. and Justin are currently in the process of moving, and work on these issues will resume in August 2021.
If you have submitted to NN recently, we are suspending our multiple submission rule due to the anticipated delay in response time: Please feel free to send your work to other markets!
If your work has been previously selected for FF and has not been published, we haven't forgotten, and it will still be published! We appreciate your patience during this time of transition.
Monthly issue submissions are CLOSED
Flying Fox Flash submissions are CLOSED
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. Our stories are often categorized in the new weird genre.
We publish at the end of each month, and we are currently accepting submissions on a rolling basis!
The Night Welcomes You.
OUR WINGED CRUSADERS
