What We Want
DALI-ANCES: The Salvador Dali Anthology features around ten to fifteen short fiction stories dealing with Salvador Dali and his artworks. We are looking for stories inspired by or involving the artist, his art, or his symbolisms that categorize him as one of the 20th century’s most influential artists.
We welcome all subgenres and forms of fantastic fiction, from horror and science fiction, steampunk and bizarro, fantasy and magic realism. We are looking for short stories which showcase Dali or his artwork as a central theme.
Deadline for submissions is August 31, 2012. No entries will be accepted beyond this deadline.
What We Don’t Want
We will not accept stories which have the theme obviously shoehorned in after the fact. We do not want generic surrealism-based stories. We are not looking for poetry. And we don’t want an extreme amount of vulgarity or sexual perversion for its own sake, unless it fits the theme and mood of the anthology, especially considering the source material.
We are looking for short fiction between 1500-7500 words, though longer fiction will still be considered. All submissions should be in DOC, RTF, or TXT format in standard double-spaced manuscript format.
Multiple Submissions and Reprints
We accept up to two (2) multiple submissions for review. Each one must be sent via its own separate email. Reprints are permissable, as long as prior publication is mentioned and described in the cover letter.
We offer $30 and one contributor’s copy of the book as payment upon acceptance. An additional royalty will be paid out for every copy of the book (press or digital) sold after the first 500.
