This call came through the SMFS this morning.
Call for Submissions for an anthology of historical crime and
Darkhouse Books seeks stories for an anthology of historical crime
and mystery fiction. For the purpose of this anthology we are
defining historical fiction as, those works set more than a few
decades prior to the present and written by someone without direct
experience in the setting and events of the story. But should
a truly superb story happen to stray from the above strictures and
cross our threshold, we would happily consider it.
The submission period is now open and will remain open through
11:59pm (PST), December 31st, 2014.
We are seeking stories in the 2500 to 7500 word range, though if
it's knockout material, we'll consider any length.
The anthology will contain between twelve and twenty stories,
depending on the overall length. Authors will share equally fifty
percent of royalties received.
We accept MS Word .doc and .docx files. Submissions must be in
standard manuscript format. Links to formatting guides are available
Previously published work will be considered, provided the author
has the power to grant us the right to publish in ebook, audio, and
print versions, and that it has not been available elsewhere more
recently than January 1st, 2014.
Submissions may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please leave "Submission-" in the subject line and add the name of
