Creature Feature

Posted by Randi on Tuesday, July 2, 2019

What they want:
Creature Feature — LGBTQIA Collection Call — MONSTERS OUT OF MYTH AND LEGEND WITH INTENTIONS MOST FOUL! THEY CRAWL OUT OF YOUR NIGHTMARES WITH UNSPEAKABLE DESIRES!

Some call them monsters; some call them imaginary; and some call them misunderstood. But what is the truth behind the creatures we find ourselves so fascinated by?

LESS THAN THREE PRESS invites you to send your most scintillating, subversive, and scary monster stories for consideration as part of our CREATURE FEATURE collection.

Editor’s note: This collection is an homage to movie monsters of yore and the popularity of paranormal fiction. We’re happy to see stories queered and subverted about classic monsters or those of your own creation—and we suggest authors using classic movie or pulp monsters make sure their creature is in the public domain.

Creature Feature is a collection, meaning stories will be sold individually and authors paid royalties.
Deadline: July 31, 2019
Length: 20,000-60,000 words
Payment: Royalties + ebook copy. Works over 40,000 words will receive 4 paperback copies.
