Taking Submissions: Tiki Terror Tales

April 2, 2013

Deadline: April 2nd 2013
Payment: 5% royalties after cost per story published

Fringeworks is always trying to find clever ways of shaking a big stick. We are currently seeking submissions for an anthology entitled ‘Tiki Terror Tales’

Submission deadline for this anthology is midnight on Tuesday, 2nd April 2013.

As the title suggests, we are looking for horror stories between 1,500 and 5,000 words, which are in some way related to Tiki culture. Tikis, for those not in the know, are the famous Polynesian carved stone or wooden statues, named for their version of the first man, and made famous by the popularity of Hawaiian and other Tiki Bars during the 1950s and 60s.

We are looking for new and original stories on this theme with surprising elements. It could involve Tiki Bar Detective Noir, Horror Adventure, Curses or Possessions, Cthulhoid Cosmic Horror, Ocean Adventure, Tiki Tribes, Family heirlooms or whatever. However you choose to turn the traditional Tiki into a tool for terror is fine by us. We expect this anthology will appeal to writers of horror and adventure, and probably to Cthulhu Mythos fans and exotic cocktail drinkers.

Submissions should be sent to [email protected] as word documents or rtf files.

Your email subject header should read ‘SURNAME/TIKI/WORD COUNT (include word count)

All submissions should;

Be 1,500 to 5,000 words (max)

Be typed in Courier or Times New Roman 12

Be typed in line with Standard Manuscript Format. Details can be found at http://www.shunn.net/format/story.html

Include your full details (name/address/telephone number/email address)

Previously published stories will be considered for this anthology. Authors will retain copyright.

Multiple submissions up to a maximum of two stories per author can be submitted.

We will write to you within approximately four weeks of the submission deadline to let you know if you have been successful.

We will pay 5% royalties after cost per story published.
