Survey Says, “Zen of the Dead”

As you may know, Popcorn Press celebrates Halloween each year with an open call for horror poetry and short fiction. Traditionally we start accepting submissions on Oct. 1, and we have an ebook out the door by Oct. 31—with files to the printer then too.

This is year seven, and we set up a survey to test a couple of titles. Zen of the Dead prevailed by a 3-1 margin. So Kate put together the prototype cover above.

Back copy (the left side of that image) will likely change—but it works for now as a poster-style graphic. The front cover (the right side of that image) is pretty much done, to my mind.

Feedback is always welcome, of course. And I look forward to your submissions; check our Zen of the Dead Kickstarter page for details!

    Thanks for the suggestion, Amanda. I’ve been mulling a couple of holidays besides Halloween. No plans yet, however.

    Hi Lester, have you also considered doing a holiday season-themed open call?

    Where do you send poetry submissions for ZEN OF THE DEAD and also do you consider interior art for this.
    Unpublished Only?
