About

What is Blood Bath?

Blood Bath is a literary zine based in Edinburgh; produced in print and ezine format, it is dedicated to exposing Scottish fiction’s weird genre underbelly. Blood Bath currently  publishes horror/genre poetry and short stories.

We know that genre fiction has always been innovative, emotive and important, that’s why we want to create a space for new and established authors to subvert and defy its conventions. Horror is our first love, but we also accept science-fiction, fantasy and all manner of genre-blending concoctions.

Experimental fiction is our jam; we’re desperate to be thrown screaming into the swirling void of literary potential.

Who is Blood Bath?

Birthed from a desire to see horror and other genre fiction better represented in publishing, Blood Bath is the ugly baby of Edinburgh genre fiction writer Katy Lennon.
