Dissections is a new international horror and dark fantasy e-journal that provides a rich opportunity for academics, critics and creative writers and artists to publish alongside each other. We welcome essays on 20th and 21st century horror and dark fantasy, including film, fiction and images. We also publish some short creative fiction, poetry and artwork.
