Taking Submissions: Pulp Heroes 2

March 31, 2013

Deadline: January 1st to March 31st 2013 (Do NOT Submit Early)
Payment: Undecided at this time monetary payment and one contributor’s copy

The Alchemy Press Book of Pulp Heroes volume II edited by Mike Chinn

Submissions guidelines by the editor:

“Following the successful publication of The Alchemy Press Book of Pulp Heroes, The Alchemy Press is following up with a second anthology: Pulp Heroes II. Once again it’s time to celebrate (or subvert) the glorious Pulp tradition – as well as taking a wild new look at it. I suggest you read volume one to get a sense of my requirements (available via Amazon and other online retailers).

From the arid plains of Mars to the canyons of Manhattan; the foetid jungle to the naked jungle. Demented criminals versus dark heroes with sinister powers. The flash of steel in the palaces of long-forgotten civilizations or along the sterile corridors of impossible spacecraft. Swords against sorcery or sword and planet.

The Alchemy Press Book of Pulp Heroes II will be available as a print edition published in October 2013, to be followed by an eBook edition. Successful contributors will receive a one-off payment (to be decided) plus a copy of the book on publication.

I am after original fiction; reprints will be considered if they are exceptional. No simultaneous or multiple submissions. Contributions should be in the range of 3,000-8,000 words (query if you wish to submit outside that range), with full contact details on the front page.

I will accept electronic submissions only as email attachments in standard MS format (.rtf, .doc or .docx), sent to [email protected]. Any submissions included in the body of the email will be rejected unread. The subject line should take the form Title/author’s name/word count (i.e. My Great Story/John Doe/5,500 words).

The submission period runs from January 1st to March 31st 2013. Do no submit outside those dates. No acceptances or rejections will be made until after the deadline; I will endeavour to report back to you six to eight weeks after that. If you have heard nothing after nine weeks you may query at the email address.
