Untitled TIME anthology
DEADLINE: 15 June 2019
Does time really exist?
In Fragments, Heraclitus wrote that “Time is a game played beautifully by children.” If we take the ancient Greek philosopher at his word, then time is an illusion, and we are not resigned to its callous whims.
What would you do if time was not a factor?
Now, let’s say that time is a very real and unyielding construct, that we are slaves to the clock, trapped within the second hand’s constraints. Can we unlock the power to change the course of its flow, or must we always remain its servants?
TRANSMUNDANE PRESS is now accepting submissions for an upcoming anthology focused on the nature of time. We are searching for unique takes on the subject: unusual stories that feature extraordinary, well-drawn characters in compelling, interesting situations.
We want the weird, the stirring, stories that will challenge readers’ perceptions and stick with them long after the book is closed.
Make your tale worth our time.
Remember: time travel is low-hanging fruit, so if you plan on popping your characters in a DeLorean or a phone booth, make sure that you really bring it.
DEADLINE: 15 JUNE 2019
Send stories that are heavily edited and ready for us to read.
These must be original pieces for first-time publication.
Limit of two submissions per person, if you have more, make a note of it in your email, and we’ll ask if we’re interested.
