Additional information:

The complete anthology will be between 75,000 – 85,000 words. I will be turning it over to the publisher no later than November 1st. I will be doing the actual editing in addition to acquiring the stories for publication. Sky Warrior Books is issuing an open call for submissions, but I am also inviting specific authors to contribute a story. I’m not holding a slot for each genre listed, I’m just taking the best quality stories up to the length of the book, so if the top 15 stories include 3 historicals and 0 bizarro, then there will be 3 historicals and 0 bizarro in the finished anthology. I will try to balance the anthology if there are too many quality submissions in one genre, though. The general concept for this anthology is authentic stories based on heathen, Viking, northern culture, Norse / Germanic mythology, and related material.

VIa: Sky Warrior Books.
