THE EXPLOITS OF MY EXCITING MEETING WITH WRITER MICHAEL MARSHALL SMITH IN A MOST UNEXPECTED MANNER THAT WAS UNEXPECTED!
Wednesday, 20 October 2010
Editors : Myself & Bill Tucker
We want your most gnarly, whacked-out and downright mondo science fiction stories. We want you to really cut loose and give us scenarios we've never seen before.
We don't want to see any obvious staples like 'people answer a distress call to find a spaceship drifting empty through space...or is it?!' or 'a new friendly alien race turn out to be evil' or anything like that. Be fresh, be creative, be utterly mental.
We're also not after bizarro - but you are encouraged to take your story as far as it can go before it actually becomes that genre (i.e. surreal, but still grounded in reality).
Other than that, the usual genres are welcome, and stories can be set anywhere or anywhen, provided it's fundamentally science fiction.
Word limit: a very firm 4K - 7K words
Payment: 1 cent p/word + 1 contributor copy
NO multiple submissions
Simultaneous submissions are okay, but please do us the courtesy of letting us know if your story gets accepted elsewhere.
Put name/by-line, approx word count, postal address and email address at the top of the first page.
NO headers on any other pages, please.
Indent by 1 press of the TAB key to start a new paragraph.
NO fancy formatting. Sometimes people have their writing software set up so it adds extra space between lines and/or paragraphs. Please remove anything like this, as it's really annoying. Thank you!
Other than this, usual Shunn manuscript rules apply.
Send submissions to wormholeantho[at]gmail[dot]com
Deadline is March 1st 2011 so plenty of time to work on something!

I found Stephen King's Dark Tower saga so enjoyable I didn't want it to end. So I stopped reading it. I put the seventh (and supposedly final) book down when I was only half-way through it, and have never picked it up again. One of the things that so gripped and fascinated me about the Dark Tower story is that it is absolutely huge, and quite mind-boggling in its intricacies. With it, King had woven threads between and through pretty much every single thing he'd ever written, tying apparently unrelated threads together to form the world's biggest and craziest jumper.
