Storm Constantine’s Wraeththu Mythos
Para Animalia: Creatures of Wraeththu
Following on from the previous anthologies of Wraeththu Mythos stories, this new collection will focus upon the Wraeththu’s relationship with the animal kingdom – creatures both existing and imaginary.
We are calling for submissions to this anthology, of stories between 3,000 and 10,000 words. As with the former anthologies, 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 previous collections may also expand upon characters (or their descendants or ancestors) who they created for their earlier stories, if they so wish.
Contributors can explore how various Wraeththu tribes interact with animals, have spiritual or working relationships with them, or even encounter zoological mysteries out in the world. Stories may also include Wraeththu shape-shifting, or their relationship with the sedim. As long as the story focuses around some kind of animal, your imagination is otherwise given no restriction. The stories can also be set in any time period of Wraeththu history.
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 31st March 2015. 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 information to them.
