Come up with a story that would fit the anthology title: Redneck Zombies from
Outer Space. Don't just take the obvious idea and run with it, come up with a
story you are pretty sure no one else will submit. Keep in mind that stories
should include a strong plot, well fleshed out characters (no pun intended), and

Stories DO NOT have to include zombies or rednecks for that matter.

This is intended to be a fun read, not bust-a-gut humor with every sentence. The
plot should not be a setup for a joke at the end. The ideal story will be a
good, solid one that has that classic B-movie genre feel to it…with humor
sprinkled in.

Again, you won't necessarily need a zombie in your tale, or rednecks for that matter,
but you will need to keep the theme of classic B-Movie science fiction/Horror in

Also, please title your story as a B-Movie (Science Fiction or Horror) classic.
i.e.: "I Married a Zombie from Outer Space."

Please keep the story clean of profanity and/or adult content.

No reprints or simultaneous submissions.

Please make sure your name, address, phone number, and email is listed on the
first page of the manuscript.

As for formatting, make sure to double-space lines, add italics where you want
italics, included only one space after a period.

  1. Hmmm. I've got a couple of ideas sitting in the idea pile that might work for this. I'll have to do some brainstorming and see if I can cook up something suitable.
