For this issue we are looking for great stories to curl up with next to a cozy fire or space heater. It is open to all fiction genres—mystery, crime, romance, science fiction, fantasy, noir, westerns, and everything in between (except extreme gore or violence).
Send us great stories we can escape in, that entertain, and that alternately (or simultaneously) puzzle, titillate, and scare us!

Entries for these contests should be previously unpublished material, including self-published or published online, and you must own the copyright.
