Storm Constantine’s Wraeththu Mythos
Future Histories of Wraeththu
Call for Submissions
Following on from Paragenesis, a collection of Wraeththu Mythos stories exploring the origins of hara and their civilisation, this new collection focuses upon the far future of this androgynous race.
We are calling for submissions to this anthology, of stories between 3,000 and 10,000 words. As with Paragenesis, we are mainly looking for pieces that do not involve characters from the original Wraeththu books, although such characters may have ‘cameo appearances’ if it suits the story. Writers who were included in the first collection may also expand upon characters (or their descendants) who they created for their Paragenesis stories, if they so wish.
The scope is wide for this collection. Contributors can investigate the consequences of Wraeththu travelling the Otherlanes and visiting other realms. Some stories may have a science fiction tone to them if that’s the way writers’ inspirations take them. Stories set ‘off world’ can involve settlers on other realms, which gives contributors more freedom in respect of sticking to ‘canon’, as long as ideas don’t depart too drastically from the original concept.
Alternatively, stories can be set on Earth, exploring how Wraeththu might have developed there. Future can mean 100 years from the original books, or 1000s of years.
Please let us know if you are interested in contributing and provide a short synopsis of your idea, by mailing Storm at the above email address. The deadline for completed submissions is 30th August 2012. As before, there will be a one-off payment of $25 per story. Contributors are welcome to submit more than one.
If you know of anyone who might like to contribute, please feel free to pass this post along!
