Taking Submissions: Ill-considered Expeditions

November 30, 2014


Deadline: November 30th, 2014
Payment: Contributor’s copy

Ill-considered Expeditions?

Yes. We want short tales of exploration gone awry.

What are you looking for?

We want stories in the grand style of Burroughs, Doyle and Verne. Spiffing adventures that plummet our heroes into disagreeable environments to face the wrath of unfriendly natives and questionable beasts. Your story can be set in the past, present or future, it can be earthbound or take place among the stars, the tale can unfold at the summit of a mountain, deep in the jungle or beneath the waves.
The bottom line is, your story has no restrictions, other than the word count and the overall anthology series theme: stories with stings in their tails.

How many words can I use to write this epic?

We are looking for stories in the 2500 – 6000 range.

What are the financial and legal details?

As with our previous volumes, AMOK! and Stomping Grounds, the contributing authors to Vol 3: Ill-considered Expeditions will all receive a paperback copy of the book, plus an option to buy more at 50% off, plus e-version(s) of the book and be in the running for one of five Editor’s Choice Awards of $30.00
First Worldwide Anthology Rights, for publication in the English language anywhere in the world and electronic and audio publication rights.
All rights return to the author one year after publication of the anthology.
