Taking Submissions: The Ghost IS the Machine

May 31, 2012

Deadline: May 31, 2012
Payment: Contributor’s copy, royalties

An Anthology of Steampunk Ghost Stories
Have you ever thought your computer, car, cellphone, etc. was haunted? Well, this book is for you. We are looking for original short fiction about haunted machines. Naturally, the Steampunk concept comes to mind. However, your story doesn’t have to take place in the Victorian Era, a great story about a haunted machine transcends the calendar.
Stories should range between 2,000 and 7,000 words. Sex, language, and violence are fine. . .as long as it’s relevant. Stories that revel in child abuse will be summarily deleted. We do enjoy stories that apply multiple genres. If you have a sci-fi horror story that fits this theme–or mystery-horror, or fantasy-horror–send it along.

Post Mortem Press markets through genre publications as well as social network and web portal sites. We travel extensively to genre conventions, book fairs, and book signings.
Books are available on Amazon.com, Post Mortem Press website, and most major on-line retailers. The are available for purchase to retail booksellers and libraries throughout North America.
We also publish industry standard eBooks for all publications.
Post Mortem Press does NOT require that you make any purchases.
Each published author will receive a FREE contributors copy and the opportunity to purchase additional copies at a deep discount.
We pay Royalties – NOT per word.
Why? It keeps the author in the equation.
