Taking Submissions: Local Magic

January 15, 2014


Deadline: January 15th, 2014
Payment: 2c/word or a percentage of net sales
Note: The publisher doesn’t list ‘horror’ as a theme so I’d keep this in the light horror or suspenseful to most likely have a shot. Just a thought and not advice you need to listen to.

Local Magic

This is your opportunity to add a little magic to the past. Tell me the tale of a real place, in a real time, but with a fantastical science element.

The story must feature a real geographic place, a building, a street. It doesn’t have to exist now, but it has to have really existed. A lake? A saloon? An alley?

Stories we will be including in this anthology should include:

1 part Magic

Your choice of wizards, artifacts, monsters or the like.

1 part Science

The magic component above is fueled by Science!

1 part Local History

Set your story in a real place that you know well. The location is not just window dressing. The location should be integral to your story. Culture and geography and real world history have conspired to create events that could have occurred no where else.

Email submissions to: [email protected]


Word count: short stories of 3,000 to 5,000 words, novelettes of 7,500-10,000 words.

Pay: 2c/word or a percentage of net sales. This is going to be a digital-only publication.

Your story should arrive in Microsoft Word and be formatted in the industry standard (or come so close that no one will notice: i.e. Times New Roman or Courier, double-spaced).

Antimatter Press welcomes submissions from all people, regardless of age, color, religion, gender identity or writing experience.

Deadline is January 15, 2014.
