Thurston Howl Publications is now accepting submissions for volume two of its furry anthology series SPECIES: Foxes.
Deadline: July 1, 2017
Word count: 2,500-8,000; a little above and a little below will be acceptable
Please put the story title and FOXES in the subject.
Foxes have been tricksters throughout most cultures. From the flame-tailed Japanese kitsune to the wily Reynard and Disney’s Robin Hood, foxes have been playful and mischievous characters across the globe. For the second volume of SPECIES, we want to see the many faces of anthro foxes. We will be accepting exactly five reprints and five original stories. Foxes 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 wolves 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 July.
