“Werewolves are much more common animals than you might think.”
— Daniel Pinkwater

SNAFU brought the pain. SNAFU: Wolves at the Door will bring the bite.29_08_2014_cover

In the blackest night or under the full moon, danger is lurking.
It’s survival at all costs when you’re fighting against an enemy that could tear you apart – or convert you to the other side.
Against the backdrop of an untamed wilderness or the dark depths of the city, the ultimate clash between the forces of man and nature rage on.

You could be battling the monster within or a war around you – where the cost could prove too great.
Whether it’s personal survival or submission of the pack, we want it all. Bring on the blood, guts and gore.

We want military combat: guns and ammo, tooth and claw.
Suspense. Tension. Conflict.
Whether the wolves are fighting with you or against you is your choice…

We STRONGLY suggest you read the first SNAFU volume to see what it is we like.

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.
10. In the subject line of your email, please put WEREWOLVES: [STORY TITLE]
(Replace [STORY TITLE] with your actual story title. Yes, unfortunately we do need to state this)


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

The only variation to this format is that italics MUST appear as they will be used; no underlining.

Anyone that fails to follow these guidelines will likely see their story gobbled up by spam gremlins.

Good luck, and good hunting…
