Entries will be judged on the talent of the writer who created the work and on the ability of the work to portray an optimistic holiday message. The opinion of what an "optimistic holiday message" is up to each judge's discretion. (Extra kudos to those that can make the judges misty-eyed).


This one doesn't pay much, but you have to love the title.

Necrotic Tissue

Payment: Between $10-$25 and a free Necrotic Tissue T-Shirt for all accepted works.

For now, open in the month of November and January for submissions. Any cross over genres with a horror element will be considered. Dark humor that is done well is always appreciated.


Another anthology with a great title!

Bad-A$$ Faeries 2: Just Plain Bad

Premise: Urban Fantasy stories about tough faeries. Basically in professions or with interests that you would least likely expect faeries to be in. For this volume a faerie must be the antagonist. In other words, both bad-a$$ and bad. This is not to say there can't be good faeries in the story as well. (for those that aren't sure what constitutes urban fantasy, it is a story in a modern setting with fantasy elements).

Word Count: approximately 5000 to 7000 words
Payment: One comp copy per author and a pro rata portion of $1.25 each book sold
Deadline: November 30, 2007

Ideas to Avoid: (Used in first volume) Biker Faeries, mob faeries, detective faeries, ghetto faeries, assassin faeries, ossuary faeries, cowboy faeries, indian faeries, street urchin faeries, gang faeries.


Cry Havoc - Stories of Conflict Between Men, Monsters, and Machines

Premise: collection is broken into section: Pure Fantasy (Men vs. Monsters, no tech), Historic Fantasy (any combination of the three, primitive tech (like Da Vinci or such), Urban Fantasy (any combination of the three, modern-day tech), Soft Sci Fi (any combination of the three, future projection tech based on current design or theory), and Hard Sci Fi (Men vs. Machines, anything you can imagine, even if the science doesn't yet support it)

Word Count: approximately 5000 to 7000 words
Payment: One comp copy per author and a pro rata portion of $1.00 each book sold
Deadline: November 30, 2007
