Welcome to ‘Tastes of the darkness’

I’m proud to announce the opening of ‘Tastes of the darkness.’ This is a blog carnival of horror flash fiction, designed to give readers tastes of what is inside of the dark minds of the horror writers around the blogosphere.

It works pretty simply. Each fortnight, a host blogger will showcase a selection horror flash fiction submitted to him/her during that fortnight.

The post will look roughly like this:

[Blogger’s introduction the carnival]

‘Link to story one as posted on writer’s blog,’ Link to writer’s blog – A blurb about the story

[Continue this for all the pieces, maybe adding the host’s own commentary as well.]

[Closing comments and a link to the next host’s blog]

The fiction can be anything under 1,000 words and it must be horror.

Leave a comment if you’re interested in being the first editor, or if you’re interested in submitting a piece.

Update: I’ve removed the minimum word count.
