Quantum Genre on the Planet of the Arts
seeks submissions of short stories, flash fiction, film
and book interpretations for a new print anthology:
Quantum Genre on the Planet of Arts. Basically, the
Quantum Genre is not theme-based but style-based. In
other words, Quantum Works are not about quantum theory
but quantum representation of characters and their
worlds. The style is
distinguished by a high degree of obscurity of both the
narrative and characters which are subject to mutability
Stories should be less than 3000 words. Payment is 4
cents per word. Deadline is 1st May 2009

Potter's Field 3
Deadline: 31st December 2008
A print anthology of tales from the graveyard. Stories
should be between 2,000-8,000 words. We do not want gore,
blood, splatter, slice-and-dice. Sure, it might be good
fun to make balloon animals out of someone's intestines,
or find out how long the heart will continue to beat
after it has been ripped from the body with a runcible
spoon. But that's not what we want. We want stories that
will scare readers, not stories that will make them gag.
This is not to say that someone in your story cannot
bleed, or die. Just put a lid on the icky stuff.
