Creative writers are invited to submit to Holy C.O.W.! SF stories from the Center Of the World, a forthcoming anthology of speculative fiction stories embedded in the ancient Fertile Crescent, Levant and the Middle East, but expanded into the near and far-off future.
Editor D. Avraham welcomes all styles and sub-genres, including humorous speculative fiction, quality flash fiction and stories with experimental narratives. The region must play a vital part of the story, and not simply a transplant. Accredited English translations of original stories, especially from regional artists, are encouraged.
Story length: 500 to 6K words.
Payment: 7-10 cents/word (considered above-pro-rates for this genre), plus a contributor’s copy. Payment is issued upon acceptance.
Deadline: November 30, 2017.
Holy C.O.W.! SF stories from the Center Of the World will be released June 2018.
