Deadline: February 28th, 2018
Payment: $50 (AUD) and a contributor’s copy
It’s time to put the grey matter to use and start planning for the next anthology. With a working title of “Beneath the Waves – Tales from the Deep,” this will be our fourth anthology in the
Things in the Well series, and will be published in 2018
(Deadline is end of February. Eta is April.)

By all means draw inspiration from them, but I’m not looking for Lovecraft/Mythos fiction, or rehashes of Greek mythology, etc. unless these are outstanding, different, and memorable! I want something new and exciting! New psychological terrors, new fears, new creatures and new stories of the supernatural. If you need more ideas, take a look at Brian Lumley’s work, or H.G. Wells, or Cornish myths, Japanese legends, etc.
Clive Barker’s story from the Books of Blood “The Madonna” will be one of our archetypes, so if you don’t know that story, please familiarise yourself with it… I’d also urge you to look at some of Brian Lumley’s work, e.g. Haggopian for some fresh ideas.
But don’t forget I’ve read all these stories, so no pastiches or cheap imitations, please 🙂
Before putting fingers on keyboards (or pen to paper) you would do well to read my Editor’s blog at http://thingsinthewell.webs.com/editor-s-blog or buy and read some of our previous
themed anthologies on Amazon. (You may have to look for them in your stores, or ask for them!)
Word Count, etc.
