Tips From the Editor: 

The editor of  negative suck, Jeffrey S. Callico, prefers submissions that make him feel as if he got punched in the face without warning or merit. Submissions NOT considered contain gratuitous sexual activity, gratuitous violence, gore (in fact, any amount of gore is gratuitous for this magazine), gratuitous profanity, political or religious references, meaningless absurdity or otherwise silly juxtapositions of thought that ramble and go nowhere but off the edges of proverbial cliffs. If you have something to say, then say it, but don't bore anyone with pretty words or extravagant phrases. Stuff like that -- yes, you guessed it -- SUCKS. Write about something no one writes about then write about it like no one could.
