Black Dandy

Posted by Randi on Monday, August 14, 2017

What they want:
If you’ve ever finished reading a story and thought, “Well, that was unusual,” then you’re only a block away from Black Dandy. In this corner of the neighbourhood, we’re looking for fiction that grips readers with vivid characters under unusual pressures. Bizarre, dreamy, unsettling.

Although we like a slow burn, we want stories to intrigue us from the start. Set the tone early, even if the story’s unusual nature takes time to unfold. Magic realism, gothic, and surrealist are compass points. Perhaps your most compelling character is a place, a meadow, a stretch of road in the middle of nowhere. Or perhaps your characters believe that all is normal while the world around them spins out of control – how do they go about their affairs in such a world? Your story will leave us feeling jarred, shaken by the collision of the familiar and unfamiliar.
