SPECIES: Wolves
« on: August 01, 2016, 04:38:46 PM »
Thurston Howl Publications is now accepting submissions for volume one of its furry anthology series SPECIES: Wolves.

Deadline: January 1, 2017
Word count: 2,500-8,000; a little above and a little below will be acceptable
Rating: PG-13
Please put the story title and WOLVES in the subject.

Wolves have danced across the outskirts of human imagination for centuries. Appearing as symbols of lust in the Epic of Gilgamesh, then the bullying character of Aesop's Fables, and the subject of terror in the Middle Ages, wolves have appeared in almost every literary genre throughout our literary and cultural history. For the first volume of SPECIES, we want to see the many faces of anthro wolves. We will be accepting exactly five reprints and five original stories. Wolves have to be the central characters, but they do not have to be the only characters in these stories. While we will accept stories of wolves in pre-modern settings, we will prefer stories of them in 1900s to futuristic settings.


You can submit up to three stories, but we will only accept one per author (if any). (Reprints do not count in the total).
Reprints are encouraged, but you have to own full permission of the work in order for us to consider it.
We will not accept simultaneous submissions.
Payment: Authors will receive a free copy of the print book.
Send submissions in .doc or .docx format to jonathan.thurstonhowlpub@gmail.com.
If you are sending more than one submission, send multiple emails instead of putting them all in one.
We will inform all authors regarding decisions within a week or two after the deadline.
Book will likely be released in March or April.

What about 'undetermined' or 'mixed technology' settings?  For example, briefcase meets horse-drawn carriage?

At this point, the payment is just contributor's copy. If that changes, I will let everyone know.
