Taking Submissions: From the Corner of Your Eye: A Cryptids Anthology

January 31, 2015

Deadline: January 31st, 2015
Payment: $25 (U.S. dollars) + Contributor’s Copy

Bigfoot.

Nessie.

The Jersey Devil.

Creatures moving in the twilight between fantasy and reality. Beasts that delight, mystify, and terrify. Cryptids are everywhere, in the water, running on the land, or even soaring overhead, challenging our faith in what science knows. From mermaids taunting our ships and Mexican goat suckers who feast on livestock (if we’re lucky) to the Jersey Devil soaring overhead, belief is only a blink away.

Great Old Ones Publishing is looking for original stories between 3,000 and 8,000 words.

PLEASE NOTE:
We will only be accepting one story involving each type of cryptid, so be creative.
No Bigfoot/Yeti stories. That particular cryptid has already been filled for this anthology by invitation.
