CURRENT SUBMISSION CALL
SNAFU – RESURRECTION
Theme – Military Horror.
What we want: Military horror, and lots of it. Think Doom, Resident Evil, Terminator, Dog Soldiers, Aliens (the second movie, not the first)… anything that can be called a high-action monster story. And SOLDIERS!
This volume is like the previous volumes squared.
We want extreme action, and it has to be military or paramilitary action. Can be mercs or ex-soldiers, though, so long as they are hardcases.
And to say it again, full action. Nothing less.
JUNE 21st – CURRENTLY READING THROUGH FOR SHORTLISTING. LARGER SUBMISSION NUMBERS THAN EXPECTED HAVE PUT US SLIGHTLY BEHIND.
Edited by Geoff Brown, Amanda J. Spedding, & Matthew Summers
Payment: AUD4c/word and one contributor copy in each format released
Wordcount range: 2,000 – 10,000 words (query for shorter or longer)
Submissions open Feb 1 2018. Closing date is April 30th 2018 (anything submitted outside this period will be deleted without being read or replied to).
No selections will be made until after the period closes.
Projected publication date: Late 2018
Please follow these guidelines when submitting to us:
1. Please put your full contact details and word count on the first page of the manuscript.
2. Standard submission format, with minimal document formatting.
3. Courier or Times New Roman set at 12pt. Italics as they will appear. No underlining.
4. Double spaced.
5. Please don’t use TAB or space bar to indent lines. Use ‘styles’ only. If unsure or using a program that has no styles, DO NOT indent at all. That’s still cool.
6. NO SPACE between paragraphs unless a line-break is required. ONE SPACE after full stops.
7. Please put full contact details on the first page of the manuscript (yes, I said this twice… it’s important).
8. Send your submission to Geoff Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org as an attachment (.doc/.rtf only)
9. In the subject line of your email, please put Resurrection: [STORY TITLE] (Replace [STORY TITLE] with your actual story title. Yes, unfortunately I do need to state this)
NO MULTIPLE SUBMISSIONS
NO SIMULTANEOUS SUBMISSIONS
Please include a brief ‘hello, this is who I am’ in your email body as a cover letter.
Blank emails with attachments will be deleted.
For a guide to standard submission format, see: http://www.shunn.net/format/story.html
The only variations to Shunn’s format are that italics MUST appear as they will be used – no underlining – and again, only one space after a full stop.
Anyone that fails to follow these guidelines will likely see their story shredded by mutant zombie-like creatures.
