In recent weeks I’ve covered much of what goes into creating an anthology, and now’s a good time to revisit one of those earlier blogs.
“Why?” you ask.
Well, because Twit Publishing is now accepting submissions for its sixth PULP! anthology, which will be released in early 2013.
Important: **Deadline for Submissions is 11/30/2012**
Twit Publishing Presents: PULP! is a semi-annual anthology that is a collection of the genre fiction derived from the original pulp magazines. When people think back on pulp nowadays, they think of hard boiled detective fiction. But, it was much, much more than that. Authors like Ray Bradbury, Robert E. Howard and H. P. Lovecraft all got their start in the pulp mags. There were magazines covering westerns, horror, action/adventure, superheros, science fiction, fantasy. Not just detective. Twit Publishing welcomes short stories from ANY genre. The best part about our anthologies is that the reader gets more than just one genre, they get a smorgasbord of literary delights.

Reblogged this on An Author's Blog and commented:
I am truly considering the idea of submitting here. I hope they seriously take it but the story might be too grotesque for them because of the element of self-cannibalism. Since Tales of the Talisman’s submissions are closed until next year I am looking for that one anthology that will be crazy enough to run Gruesome Cargo II.
