Flash fiction & Short Stories (1,000 – 6,000 words)

Poetry and re-prints will also be considered

For this anthology I would like stories about biology gone mad. Stories about the end of the world as we know it are acceptable as long as there is a Bio Hazard, a plague, a monster created by demon spore by a little kid’s chemistry set, by the military or by independent scientists……just give me Bio Hazards as they are in your mind, your perceptions of what the worst Biological disaster might be about. Mutants, strange powers, third eyes or anything you can conceive of will be considered and if you have a poetic bone then send me your poetry on the subject. This anthology is open to humor as well as zombies. Send me your best.
