This week we have a fantasy tale of fishing by Sergio Palumbo, a murder mystery from Gary Murphy, a story of childhood and its traumas from Kevin Rees, and a vision of an alternative post WW1 timeline from Mark Slade and yours truly, which is the first story in a shared universe anthology, The Black Hand Supremacy, for Rogue Planet Press – currently receiving submissions. Like the sound of it? Then get involved! (Details below)
The Days of Mr Thomas continues in the Job Starter Centre. In The Thousand and One Nights, the Wonder of the Age learns the identity of the singer of verses. In Cut, Sam-I-Am makes a breakthrough. We’re introducing EM Forster’s vision of a future dependent wholly on machines in part one of The Machine Stops. In part two of The Smoky God, we hear Olaf Jansen’s story of how he and his father journeyed to a warm land near the North Pole. And Gulliver of Mars, pursuing the abductor of his love, comes to a mysterious river.
Rogue Planet Press Submissions Call: The Black Hand Supremacy
World War One has ended. The world lies in ruins. One corporation is poised for world domination and one man is hell-bent on keeping that from happening. Using his skills in Magic, Alastor (aka Talbot Carruthers) sets out to take revenge on the corporation that rules Zenith city (formerly Sarajevo) after Synthetic Men murder his wife.
All stories should contain the characters of Alastor/Talbot Carruthers, Ronald Pryor (CEO of Illusion Inc.) And his right hand man, Gavril Princip. Stories should be about their epic battle, good vs evil. 2,000 words-7,000 words.
Contact Mark Slade for in-depth guidelines before submitting stories.
