Thurston Howl Publications is now accepting submissions for its eighth furry anthology, SLASHERS.
Deadline: May 1, 2018
Word count: 2,500-8,000; a little above and a little below will be acceptable
Who here likes slasher films? Thurston Howl is editing a furry anthology around that premise. So, pick your favorite slasher film–Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, Scream, Friday the 13th–and make a furry story similar to it. Or make a completely original one! We want to see anthro-animal characters at their most-terrified, running from whoever you pick as their monstrous stalker. It is perfectly fine but not required if submissions are NSFW. We are honestly expecting horror here, gritty, gory, and maybe even a little sexy. However, again, adult stories are by no means required for acceptance. All story submissions must be “furry” in nature.
We will NOT accept:
Racism, sexism, or discrimination presented in a positive light.
Pedophilia or sex with characters under the age of 18 presented in a positive light.
Rape, torture, dubious consent, forced seduction presented in a positive light.
Snuff or Necrophilia presented in a positive light
Bestiality presented in a positive light
If you are in doubt, ASK. Better to ask then to get a straight up rejection! If you are unsure, just shoot me an email at email@example.com. (restrictions borrowed from Voice: https://t.co/MWykJ6RY36)
You can submit up to three stories, but we will only accept one per author (if any).
Reprints are fine, 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 half a cent per word + free art of character.
Send submissions in .doc or .docx format to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Title your email with the story title in all caps, e.g. “NIGHTMURR ON ELM STREET.” 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 October in plenty of time for Halloween.
