We are accepting submissions for the all-horror edition of The Binge-Watching Cure, www.bingewatchigcure.com.

We're still swamped with stories for the first edition and because of that we haven't created a separate page for the horror edition yet, but that will come soon. The same general rules apply to the horror edition. (less)
