So Pthom and I have been colluding about a project for a couple of weeks, and we're ready to go public:
Announcing the First Absolute Write Speculative Fiction Short Story Anthology!
We're looking for a few great (short) stories from AWers:
*We really can't include stories longer than 10,000 words.
*Stories should have strong SpecFic elements (science fiction, fantasy, magical realism, horror, paranormal, etc.).
*Stories must be written within the last year.
*No reprints, please. We want to showcase fresh new talent.
We will pay 2˘ per word for accepted stories. We ask for one-time rights to simultaneously produce an e-book version and a print version.
You may submit your story (in standard manuscript format) in as an .rtf email attachment to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Submissions close September 1, 2011!
Proposed date of publication of the anthology is Thanksgiving.
If you have questions, by all means ask. Send a PM with your question to the moderator of the genre SF/F forum (that's Pthom, otherwise known as Peter).
