FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LAST CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS TO ‘THE ADVENTURES OF ASTRO, MASTER OF MYSTERIES’
Pro Se Productions, a company known for breathing new life into long forgotten creations, announces a submissions call for an anthology featuring an obscure detective character first debuting in 1912. Proposals are now being accepted for THE ADVENTURES OF ASTRO, MASTER OF MYSTERIES’, an anthology in Pro Se’s PULP OBSCURA imprint through February 3rd, 2020.
Astro, originally appearing in 1912, is a character created by Gelett Burgess making his living traveling the world as a psychic. Actually just a master of observation, Astro, with the help of the lovely Valeska Wynne, gathers information to make his honed abilities to seem extrasensory. Along the way, Astro finds himself assisting in solving mysteries of all types, proving formidable both as a con artist and a crime solver. The original book can be requested by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proposals for this anthology must include a synopsis of the story, written as a true synopsis, not like a sales pitch. If accepted, stories must be 8,000-10,000 words in length and will be due by April 19, 2020.
Stories may be set in any period from 1912-1950. Assumed in his mid 20s in the original novel, Astro may be written up until he is in his late 50s, but regardless of age, his role as phony medium and detective must be the same. A minimum of one story is needed to fill out this collection.
