I seem to never fail to find horror markets. I don't write horror. Are they really that popular?

Here's one that caught my eye--from Scotland.

Raw Terror Anthology

We're looking for scary, horrible, terrifying stories that would fit into an anthology called “Raw Terror”. They can be traditional horror, supernatural, or psychological, but no Fantasy or Science fiction, unless your story really merits that framework.

Short stories should be 500 to 5000 words in length, 12pt, Times New Roman font, double spaced, two spaces after sentence ending punctuation. Please do not use headers or footers.

Stories should be sent as .rtf or .doc documents. Please include details (name, address, word count) and a brief (250 word) bio in the body of the e-mail.

Payment: £10 per story and a contributor’s copy for 1st worldwide anthology rights. No reprints. Authors will be paid upon publication.

Deadline: 2-28-09

Go to their website for more info.

They seem to sell. Since I started writing horror shorts a couple of years ago, I've been selling a bit of it. My first SFWA qualifying sale to Brutarian was a horror piece.

Thanks for chiming in on my LJ, Maria. And for the OWW shout-outs, :)

Judging by all the available markets, I didn't have any doubt horror was popular. You're proof of that! You are on a roll!

I just wish I wrote horror too. I feel so left out. lol.
