Taking Submissions: SNAFU: Hunters

August 1, 2015


Deadline: August 1st 2015
Payment: AUD3c/word and one contributor copy in each format released

SNAFU: Wolves at the Door brought the bite.
SNAFU: Hunters will bring the thrill of the chase.

For this anthology, we want hunters of the supernatural.

Sam and Dean… Grimm… Van Helsing… with soldiers, hunting along the edges of reality, watching their backs while others watch them from the shadows.
Take us along for the ride while your soldiers or hunters take the fight to their enemies. Both hunter or hunted may die, but above all, show us the hunt.
We still want ORIGINAL military-style combat from any period, don’t get me wrong, but we also want fear… we want suspense and tension… we want originality in the monster/antagonist.
Most of all we want action, action, ACTION!
We want something jaw-droppingly amazing.
If there are no soldiers in the tale, make the hunters and the action military in nature.
We STRONGLY suggest you read the first, second and/or third SNAFU volume to see what it is we like.

Projected publication date: October/November 2015

Please follow these guidelines when submitting to us:
1. Please put your full contact details on the first page of the manuscript top left, with word count top right.
2. Standard submission format, with minimal document formatting.
3. Courier or Times New Roman set at 12pt. Italics as they will appear. No underlining.
4. Double spaced.
5. Please don’t use TAB or space bar to indent lines. Use ‘styles’ only. If unsure or using a program that has no styles, do not indent at all. That’s still cool.
7. NO SPACE between paragraphs unless a line-break is required. ONE SPACE after full stops.
8. Please put full contact details on the first page of the manuscript (yes, I said this twice… it’s important).
9. Send your submission to Geoff Brown at editor@cohesionpress.com as an attachment (.doc only – no .docx).
10. In the subject line of your email, please put HUNTERS: [STORY TITLE]
(Replace [STORY TITLE] with your actual story title. Yes, unfortunately I do need to state this)


For a guide to standard submission format, see: http://www.shunn.net/format/story.html

The only variations to this format are that italics MUST appear as they will be used – no underlining – and again, only one space after a full stop.
Anyone that fails to follow these guidelines will likely see their story gobbled up by spam gremlins.

Good luck, and good hunting…
