This one looks cool.

http://www.darkmarkets.com/2016/03/cold-iron.html

* Open to writers from Great Britain or Ireland only.

IRON Press is seeking submissions of previously unpublished ghost stories for a new anthology, Cold Iron, to be co-edited by Peter Mortimer and Eileen Jones.

Traditionally, ghost stories are pleasurably scary, suitable for telling round the hearth or the campfire, but they can incorporate serious moral themes as well as humour and romance. We share M. R. James' views that ghost stories work best when set near the audience's/readers' own time, invoking a chilling contrast between the known world and the menace of the paranormal, and that gratuitous violence should be avoided. Submit ghost stories only please - we're not looking for stories that really belong in the sci-fi cosmos, vampire crypt, zombie graveyard or werewolf woodlands. Also we're not looking for poetry or (see minimum word count) flash fiction.

I sent off an email to Peter Mortimer at Iron Press, and apparently this anthology's open to everyone.

Thanks, Womble.  afro  I'd written this one off because of the restriction, but now I may take a shot.
