There's a submission call for an anthology called "Trigger Reflex", which is a monster hunter anthology follow-up to Leather, Denim & Silver. Since most of the stories will undoubtedly focus on vampires and werewolves, I thought I would throw the editor for a loop and submit a piece on a water buffalo that's run amok in the rice fields of Isan (northeastern Thailand). It's being edited by my little brother, but hopefully they'll consider it on comedy value alone (in a shit economy, everyone needs a good laugh).
Having come across a few water buffalo in my day, I can tell you there is nothing too spooky about them. My wife and her friends laughed at me when asked if it would be a good horror story. So to spice things up, I threw in some pissed off spirits of the ancestors lurking in the night and a child murder. Can you blame me?
If your looking for other good places to submit works for anthologies, DL Snell's website is a good resource also.
