Anthology Call for Submissions: "Reel Dark: Twisted Fantasies Projected on the Flickering Page"

Authors, check out this call for submissions to an anthology I'm editing with L. Andrew Cooper .

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: BlackWyrm Publishing is opening several positions in its spring short fiction  anthology for general submissions. We offer professional rates (typically $.05/word) for full members of  professional organizations such as the HWA, MWA, RWA, and SFWA; other stories accepted through  general submissions receive a flat semi‐professional rate of $25. All contributors receive copies. The  collection, tentatively titled Reel Dark: Twisted Fantasies Projected on the Flickering Page, focuses on  the infection of (prose‐fictional) worlds by movies. We want innovative approaches: if you think endless  references to films or characters stepping into or off of the screen is innovative, reconsider submitting.  Although the anthology as a whole will be dark in tone, it will speak to a range of audiences interested in  horror, science‐fiction, fantasy, and/or romance (particularly paranormal). Stories should not exceed  3,500 words. Submissions are open now and close November 1, 2014. We intend to launch the  collection at the World Horror Convention in May 2015. Submit stories in standard manuscript format  via Direct questions about the focus, rates, etc. to Editor‐in‐Chief L.  Andrew Cooper via Submissions sent directly to the editor will be  deleted unread. Authors accepted or invited to submit may join the group at for more information.
