Salient points are these:

DarkFuse Magazine is an online publication looking for:

Original Fiction: Horror, thriller, suspense, crime, sci-fi, bizarre—anything with a dark slant. Original, never-before-published stories.  

500-2K words paid. [Will publish longer stories, but maximum pay-out is to 2k words].

DarkFuse Magazine also publishes stories 500-999 words as part of their continuing ‘Horror d'oeuvres series’ within the magazine.  [1K+ words is considered featured fiction].

Payment: 5 cents per word up to 2k words.

Rights Taken: One-time web publication rights.  Two year exclusive agreement before submitting to another market. Non-exclusive archive rights for the life of the online magazine. All other rights revert to the author on publication.

Response Time appears quite long, however: 6 months or less.


DarkFuse Magazine market is geared towards both new, mid-list and established authors in dark fiction.

For New & Mid-list Authors: This magazine is a paying market with a major focus on exposure through distribution and paid marketing and promotions of its content. DarkFuse editors use submissions to scout talent for the company's main focus and revenue stream which is its digital and physical book lines.
