Raven Warren - A Caution
Do you ever read market guidelines that set off warning bells in your head? Over at Duotrope I found a listing for Raven Warren. They're putting together an anthology called "Winning! A Guide to Games That Never Were". Sounded like fun but the pay is only $5. What bothered me is that on their about page they say that they specialize in game development. The bells? There's no listing of what rights they're buying. I worry that since they're game developers that they might decide to develop one of the "imaginary" games into the real thing and if your rights aren't stated you might lose control of what happens to your story after publication. If you decide to submit to this market be very sure of what rights you're granting this company.
