Strange Changes

What they want:
This anthology will contain stories in which _one_thing_ in our world is changed. For example, war is ended. What would be the good -- and bad -- results? Or, animals can talk. What would be the good or bad results? Of course you can think of better ideas -- please do so!

We're interested in science-fiction, fantasy and (light) horror.

It Haunts Us Still

What they want:
Not necessarily an anthology of ghost stories... although it could be!

We can be haunted by many things: a memory, a place, a wrong decision, someone or something we’ve lost. 'Haunted' can refer to a state of mind, or it can be meant literally.

This anthology of short fiction will explore the notion of being haunted in any of its possible interpretations. We want writers to bring their own unique slant to the theme. We are looking for interesting voices and exciting, original ideas.

All genres are welcome from literary fiction to comedy, horror and of course the ghost story.

Writers based in, or writing about, the UK Midlands, or who are graduates of a Creative Writing or English course in the region are at an advantage: part of our remit is to promote writing from the Midlands. However we may accept a proportion of work from other writers that addresses the theme particularly well.
Deadline: August 30, 2015
Length: 1,000-6,000 words
Payment: 1p per word up to maximum of £50

Life on the Rez

What they want:
The stories are to be inspired by (by which we mean drawn from, informed by, derived from) the author's personal experiences of living on The Rez (by which we mean an American Indian Reservation or any of the country's many Reservation analogs).  This can be a story that takes place on a Reservation (past, present or future), but it can also be one that takes place on a spaceship, a distant planet, under the ocean, in the afterlife or in another dimension.  As long as something about the story was inspired or influenced by your personal experience of Life on the Rez, it is a story we'd like to consider for our collection.

We tend toward (soft) Science Fiction and Fantasy, but will also accept well-written Horror or Supernatural or Whatever, as long as it is Speculative Fiction and meets the other requirements stated here. 
Deadline: October 30, 2015
Length: 500-7,500 words
Payment: $5 advance + royalties
