In the Air

What they want:
AIR surrounds us.

Invisible but everywhere, AIR can be gentle and playful spirit, or an aggressive and destructive force.

Winds lift and move water, driving the storms and waves that irrigate crops and shape shorelines.

The breeze can transport seeds, fertilizing the earth and spreading life in its wake.

AIR feeds fire, gives life to its burning creativity.

Our words and music vibrate within AIR; its gusts allow our species to communicate and sing with one and other.

AIR fills the spaces within our lives, it is the element that whispers dreams and lets the world dance.

TRANSMUNDANE PRESS is searching for stories centered on and about AIR for the next anthology in our series focusing on the classic alchemic elements, EARTH, AIR, FIRE, and WATER.

We enjoy reading well-crafted fantasy, horror, erotic, and science fiction tales, and we're looking for authors with clean, heavily-edited writing to showcase alongside our established contributors.

Let your imagination squall and launch you IN THE AIR.
Deadline: June 15, 2018
Length: 3,000-7,000 words
Payment: $10-20, depending on length, and author copies: one physical and one electronic

Thuggish Itch: Viva Las Vegas

What they want:
For Thuggish Itch's first collection we are looking for stories that fit the theme 'Viva Las Vegas' and are feature the iconic city in one way or another. Las Vegas is one of our favourite cities and we're keen to see how you can mess with the status quo. Slot machines that will rob you of more than just a nickel or dime? Back alley negotiations that go horribly wrong? A flesh-eating virus that runs riot through each and every casino on the strip. Think outside the box and give us something spectacular.

Thuggish Itch is our horror, sci-fi and speculative fiction collection. Please ensure that your story falls within one of these genres.
Deadline: June 30, 2018
Length: 1,000-6,000 words
