Parhelion is accepting short story and flash submissions for our annual Halloween Issue. We're looking for wonderfully creepy, give-me-the-shivers, keep-me-up-at-night stories—bonus if the setting is Halloween/fall. Think James' TheTurn of the Screw or Jackson's The Lottery. Or, the way ghosts haunt the living in Jesmyn Ward's Sing Unburied Sing. Send us your best work!
