Sensorama – Call for Works Reminder

Just a reminder here that Eibonvale Press is currently calling for works for Allen Ashley’s anthology Sensorama – an anthology of slipstream stories based upon, celebrating and exploring the senses.

From the Guidelines:

“This will be an anthology of stories based upon, celebrating and exploring the senses. I am looking for short stories within the range 1000 to 6000 words which deal with the senses as an integral component of both plot and theme. I will expect stories to be broadly within the SF / Fantasy / Horror / Slipstream / Fabulist field. I will also consider more mainstream work which has some elements or references to the broad fantasy canon. I will expect to include stories that explore the traditional five senses of: Sight, Hearing, Touch, Smell and Taste. I will also consider work which explores other senses or quasi senses – e.g. the “sixth” sense of intuition or other qualities such as Extra-Sensory Perception, Precognitive Ability, etc.”

Reading period is 1 January 2014 to 30 April 2014.

Wordcount: 1000-6000

Payment: £10 plus hardcover copy

Please check here for more info and keep those submissions coming!: http://www.eibonvalepress.co.uk/infoforwriters.htm 

And in the meantime I now have to work out how to cover-illustrate the concept of 5 elements with a vague hint of possible other elements of quasi elements!

Ok everyone – at last some press news! I have released a call for submissions for a new Eibonvale Press anthology, Sensorama edited by Allen Ashley – more info here! Submissions opening in the new year. This is a great subject for a book and fertile ground for writing, so I am very excited to see what people come up with!

Regarding opening for other, more general submissions, I fear that due to extreme personal exhaustion and to wanting to preserve at least a little of my own writing capability, Eibonvale will probably not be opening to general submissions for a while yet.  Apologies to those who are interested, and I am not really happy at becoming something I always disliked in a press (a closed door) but please remember that this enterprise is still just me and my increasingly sparse free time so I really don’t have much choice about that for now.  I just ask you to bear with me there and know that it is something I really want to do and will get to as soon as I feel I have the space to deal with it and do you all justice.
