Looking for somewhere to submit your short stories? Well, the company Broken Eye Books will begin accepting submissions to two very interesting sounding anthologies starting in March. The first is entitled Ghost in the Cogs and will feature ghost stories set in a steampunk world. The second is Tomorrow’s Cthulhu and will feature stories with a blend of sci-fi, specifically transhumanist or near-future, and horror from the Cthulhu mythos.
I think these anthology topics are pretty interesting and provide solid genre mash-ups between science-fiction and fantasy. Moreover, they’re crossovers that aren’t very common, which should make for some cool reads. I’m definitely going to be trying my hand at one of these, if not both, and once the anthologies are released, I’ll be curious to see what kinds of stories other authors out there have come up with.
The submission dates for both anthologies begin on March 1st and run until April 1st. Stories should be no more than 4,000 words. Accepted authors will be compensated at 6 cents a word. You can learn more at the Broken Eye Books site, if you’re interested. And if you are, get writing!
