Links For Writers

Writer's Free Reference There is so much information available here,  it is unbelievable. Visit the site and spend a little time checking it out. You will not be disappointed.

Funds For Writers is owned and run by Hope C. Clark. The site specializes in grants for writers, but there is plenty more on the site and if you are a writer this is a site that might prove to be very useful to you. The site offers two newsletters. One of them is available by paid subscription only and the other one is free. I subscirbe to the free one and it is worth getting it for the market listing alone. Talking of market listings, hope has also written a lot of ebooks, most of which are market guides and all of which are available to buy from the site.

Links for Horror Writers

The Horror Writers Association

The HWA exists to promote and protect the careers of professional horror writers and those who hope to become professional horror writers. The HWA also works very hard to raise the profile of the horror and dark fantasy genres.


The Internet Sacred Text Archive is an incredibly useful site that offers the largest freely available archive of online books about religion, mythology, folklore and the esoteric on the internet. If you need to do some research into religions or the occult I can think of no better place start.


Encyclopedia Mythica

Encyclopedia Mythica is an award-winning internet encyclopaedia of mythology, folklore, and religion. The mythology section of the site is divided by geographical region and the folklore section contains general folklore, Arthurian legends, and fascinating folktales from all around the world. Special interest areas include a bestiary, legendary heroes, an image gallery, and genealogical tables of various pantheons and prominent houses. The site is easy to navigate and is a great research tool.

MARKET DATABASES   There are a lot of  sites on the net that offer market information, but, as far as markets for speculative fiction are concerned, I believe this one to be the best. The site is regularly updated and paying markets are segregated from their non-paying counterparts. Semi-pro and Professional markets also have their own section of the site. There is a wealth of information on this site, but don't just take my word for it, check it out for yourself:

Dark    Another useful site. It's updated regularly and it's free.

Horror Tree  Definitely worth checking out, the Horror Tree is a resource for horror authors—mainly those who are looking for a market for their short stories. Owned and run by Stuart Conover, the site lists horror anthologies and publishers that are taking submissions.


General Horror Links (old time radio show catalogue) is a great resource for fans of old radio shows. Visitors to the site can listen to thousands of old-time radio episodes online, download full episodes in mp3 format, or buy them as a collection on a CD. The site boasts shows from many different genres and has a whole section dedicated to shows in the mystery/horror genre. Check it out!
