Gumshoe Review Open to Submissions

Gumshoe Review is now open to accept short original fiction. What we’re looking for in stories is a complete mystery in 1,000 words or less. We don’t want character studies or mood pieces. We’d like it to lean towards noir but being a mystery — telling a story is actually more important.

The short stories should be no longer than 1,000 words. Pay will be 5 cents per word to a maximum of $50 (so if the story is longer you still only get $50).
