Dark Passages Publishing

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


Whether it’s mystery, noir, hardboiled, psychological, thriller,  pulp, or literary crime, Dark Passages Publishing is looking to promote  strong voices and novellas that exceed expectations and surprise the  reader in both context and form. Give us something nebulous, something  gritty, something radical, compelling stories with intriguing characters  and quality writing. We’re hungry for work that unsettles and thrills  with language and twists.

Dark Passages Publishing is a world populated by psychopaths, sociopaths, misfits, and sundry  fellow travelers ebbing and flowing in the common goals of “the big  score,” “achieving total dominance,” and “righting wrongs.” We want a  world whose narrators’ understanding of such things in direct contrast  to the world at large, due to their own peculiar world views, is  embedded in quest of their goals. Such a world has been covered by Jim  Thompson and Cornell George Hopley-Woolrich. Think The Killer Inside Me, The Grifters, The Killing, and No Hope for Tomorrow.

Dark Passages Publishing is home to The J.J. Outre Review.
