WEEK OF WRITERS CALL! ONE STORY NEEDED FOR ‘EDGAR ALLEN POE-TIME TRAVELER’ ANTHOLOGY!
As part of its week of calls to fill open anthologies, Pro Se Productions announces that a minimum of one story is needed for a collection focusing on a wild alternative take on of the world’s best known and mysterious authors-EDGAR ALLEN POE-TIME TRAVELER!
A concept that takes Poe to a whole new level comes from the creative brain of author and anthology editor Ernest Russell. The concept for this anthology comes from an old theory that makes a note of rather curious and seemingly prophetic events in Poe’s writings.
Stories in the anthology should work from the premise Poe was a frequent time traveler. While examples represent only a few adventures/information he incorporated into his stories, this anthology shall feature the stories of his experiences that he did not report.
• Stories can only travel to Poe’s future. No grandfather paradox.
o Travel to a period can involve a historical event or occurrence but is not necessary.
o These adventures do not have to relate to Poe’s published work.
o Allies/Companions in the story will be considered. Still, many have been done using H.G. Wells and Nikola Tesla stories; using them will not be allowed.
• Stories are not to be set within Poe’s lifetime.
o One exception – because of the mysterious circumstance surrounding his death- stories involving the week before his death will be allowed, though limited in number.
• Any method of time travel is available – Portal, Mental/astral projection, Magic, a mechanical device, etc.
• Stories can be in any genre. Poe had an influence upon-Detective, Horror, and Science Fiction.
All interested authors should request the anthology bible and submit proposals for a single 7-8,000 word story to firstname.lastname@example.org. The story will be due within 60 days of acceptance if the proposal is accepted. Once the story is completed, the entire anthology will move into the publication queue. Payment will be royalty based.
