    Leads: Excalibur 2020: Tales from Beyond Tomorrow vol. 3 ($100)

    Not mine, but passing it along---

    The work must be in the genre of Speculative Fiction (Science Fiction, Fantasy, or Horror).

    The work must have a thematic connection to Japan and/or the Olympics. This could include:

    Works set in cities during their Olympic years; for example – Paris 1924, Berlin 1936, the first Tokyo Olympics in 1964, Barcelona 1992, Beijing 2008, London 2012, and so on (We are also willing to accept non-fiction memoirs of Olympic years, depending on the circumstances).

    Works of fiction with a theme and setting of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics specifically.

    Works mainly based on aspects of Japanese society and culture with a tangential connection to the Olympics.

    If you have an idea for a story connected to Japan or the Olympics that doesn’t fit any of the points above, then contact us on the email address below and we’ll be very happy to discuss it with you.

    Reprints WILL be considered, so don’t worry if your story fits the guidelines but has already been published somewhere else.

    Word Count: Strictly 2,500 to 10,000 words.

    Addendum 7/22/19: We now have enough submissions of speculative fiction exploring aspects of Japanese society and culture, so we are looking for works set in Olympic games from other times, other places, even other worlds - such as Paris 1924, London 1948, Rome 1960, Montreal 1976, Beijing 2008, the far future, alternate realities ...

    Payment: Payment will be $100 for each story via PayPal, to be paid after the final acceptance. Contributors MUST have a PayPal account. Contributors will also receive a free, electronic contributor’s copy of the anthology.

    Additional information regarding formatting, etc, is at their website.
