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 on the 28th of each month, and we are currently accepting submissions on a rolling basis!
The Night Welcomes You.
