Deadline: July 1st 2012
Payment: £10 and contributor’s copy
Screaming Dreams and Noose & Gibbet are proud to announce a joint project, simply called ‘THE YEAR’. It will be published in 2013 and edited by Johnny Mains and Steve Upham. This anthology will showcase the very best writings of Crime, Horror, Science Fiction and Fantasy. 52 stories, one for each week of the year…
This project is currently open to submissions and while we are mainly focused on new, original fiction – there will be three classic reprints from each genre.
As the budget for the publishers will be rather taxing, payment will be £10 and a copy of the finished book. Stories will have to be no more than 3k in length. If you’re a horror writer but have always wanted to write a crime tale, give it a shot – if you’re a die-hard sci-fi scribe, why not jump into the land of orcs and magic talismans. What will NOT get in the book are mash-ups, emotive vampires and sadly there will be no room at the inn for zombies. TV and film related spin off stories will also be a no-go.
The deadline is July 1st 2012 – this will give you enough time to think of a story, write it and send it in. You will be informed of whether you are in the book by Sept 1st 2012. No multiple submissions allowed and the date for all authors to sign off their individual stories will be February 1st 2013 with the book being published at the World Fantasy Convention in Brighton Oct 31st – Nov 3rd.
