Taking Submissions: Of Gods and Globes Volume 3

Deadline: December 15th 2022
Payment: Royalties
Theme: Pick a name — or a personification — from ANY mythology that 1. is represented in that culture’s constellations and 2. is represented in that culture’s mythopoetic or fantastic mythos. Then write forward from that.

The Of Gods and Globes anthology started with a few of us and was so successful, it has expanded to include many more. Juliet Marillier’s story in volume I was nominated for an Aurelius award. Kaaron Warren’s story in volume II won the Ditmar award. We’re gearing up for volume III now with help from fellow writer, editor, and friend of the site Emily Munro. Submit here.

We’re looking for stories for the third installment Of Gods and Globes. Pick a name — or a personification — from ANY mythology that

  1. is represented in that culture’s constellations and
  2. is represented in that culture’s mythopoetic or fantastic mythos. Then write forward from that.

A story based on “Jupiter” counts — both a planet and a god.

A story based on “Nimrod” counts — both a constellation and a mythic hunter.

A story based on planet PSR B1257+12 B does not count.

A story based on the character Amarok does not count, unless there’s some sort of constellation or heavenly body the editors remain ignorant about (completely possible).

  1. Bonus points for metaphysical or philosophical hinting and musing (think Dostoevsky and Tolkien, not Plato and Nietzsche), though not required.
  2. Bonus points for exclusive submissions, though simultaneous accepted.
  3. Bonus points for prior publication and an active readership, but not required.

When in doubt, read the last two volumes.

Payment as per usual is on a split royalty basis with the authors. The first volume paid competitive rates over the long haul.

Wordcount: under 7,500 highly preferred, under 10,000 accepted, 15,000 absolute outer limit — anything over that will be auto-rejected.

Submissions close: December 15 2022
