ImPure Fiction is an online publishing house and podcast dedicated to melancholic, horror and suspense writing. Dark Tales and Stories, Horror Writing as well as Detective Fiction Gone Mad – all find a cold, sad home under the roof of ImPure Fiction Publishing.
We do not publish uplifting fiction, although that kind of writing also has place in the massive body of modern literature. We focus on stories that don’t end well, protagonists that are broken and tales that are, ultimately, cathartic. Why? Because we believe that life is dark as it is, and in many cases, far darker than fiction we publish. Our society condemns mourning and melancholia, yet we believe it has an undeniable place in our lives, like something of an emotional release. We must allow ourselves to mourn and experience loss and overcome it. This is what, we believe, makes us emotionally capable, stronger, and more empathetic to the real life events, people, and situations.
