​Thurston Howl Publications is now accepting submissions for volume six of its furry anthology series SPECIES: Bears.

Deadline: July 1, 2019
Word count: 2,500-8,000; a little above and a little below will be acceptable
Rating: PG-13
Please put the story title and SPECIES: BEARS in the subject.

We love bears. Whether it’s Baloo, Winnie the Pooh, Smokey the Bear, or even gummi bears, they can be cute, cuddly, and ferocious all at the same time. For the sixth volume of SPECIES, we want to see the many faces of anthro bears, including grizzlies, pandas, and polar bears. We will be accepting reprints and original stories. Bears have to be the central characters, but they do not have to be the only characters in these stories. While we will accept stories of bears in pre-modern settings, we will prefer stories of them in 1900s to futuristic settings.

You can submit up to three stories, but we will only accept one per author (if any). (Reprints do not count in the total).
Reprints are encouraged, 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 a free copy of the print book.
Send submissions in .doc or .docx format to Tabs at tabsley.thurstonhowlpub@gmail.com .
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 in the winter.
