Taking Submissions: The Detective and the Clergyman

Deadline: October 15th, 2022
Payment: $100 or $50 plus a percentage of the Kickstarter project profits (whichever amount is greater) and a contributor’s copy
Theme: Stories that team up Sherlock Holmes and Father Brown

Edited by David Marcum
Description: In 1910, the first story of Father Brown, the East Anglican Roman Catholic priest and detective was published. Sometimes called the counter to Sherlock Holmes and the world’s second greatest detective, the plain mild-mannered Brown used intuition with his logic to solve cases. This anthology will feature stories where the
two great detectives, the cold and calculating Holmes and the kind and meek Brown, team up to solve mysteries.
Guidelines: Submissions should be between 5,000-10,000 words in length (okay to go over the word limit) and should feature the traditional Holmes of the canon and G.K. Chesterton’s Father Brown. No stories based on TV/ film versions of the detectives.

Theme: Traditional Sherlock Holmes stories that demonstrate Sherlock Holmes’s skills as the “consulting detective”

Edited by Ray Riethmeier

Description: A collection of traditional Sherlock Holmes stories that demonstrate Sherlock Holmes’s skills as the “consulting detective” that he set out to be, based on the way he first described his profession to Doctor Watson: “Here in London we have lots of Government detectives and lots of private ones. When these fellows are at fault, they come to me, and I manage to put them on the right scent. They lay all the evidence before me, and I am generally able, by the help of my knowledge of the history of crime, to set them straight.”
