Overdue - Tales of Mystery and Adventure

Posted by Randi on Tuesday, May 22, 2018

What they want:
Throughout history, great books have been lost. Books with forgotten knowledge; books with information that could rewrite history as we know it; or simply books that could make someone a pretty penny.

Many of these works, are, no doubt, gone for good.

Some, however, may still survive as lone copies hidden in musty archives, quirky bookshops, jealously guarded private collections, dismal castles, or remote caverns.

A global effort has been launched to find them. These are the stories from behind the scenes.

Bring us stories about questing for lost books. The books may come from actual history, myth, literature (remember to check copyright status), or your imagination. Among the genres we will consider are Adventure, Gothic, Horror, Pulp, Mystery, Magical Realism, Thriller, Urban Fantasy, and Weird Fiction.
