Science Fiction Horror Anthology: Call for Submissions

  Science Fiction Horror Anthology: Call for Submissions Fur Planet is seeking submissions of anthropomorphic science fiction horror short stories for an upcoming anthology. Despite what some people think, horror and science fiction have a lot in common.

All story submissions should have anthropomorphic animals as the primary characters. If you are unfamiliar with stories that include anthropomorphic characters, please check out FurPlanet (www.furplanet.com) Stories should contain and element of science fiction AND horror. There are a number of sub-genres within each primary genre, so blend two that work with your story. Good movie examples of well combined science fiction horror include:   Alien Event Horizon Splice Pitch black   Submissions should be between 5,000 and 12,000 words, although the editors may consider longer works in some instances. The editors are only seeking original, unpublished stories. Reprints will not be accepted. Payment is set at ½ cent US per word. The publisher purchases exclusive publication rights in print and electronic formats for a period of one year from the date of publication. Deadline: 1st March 2016 Expected Publication Date: 22nd September 2016   You can read the full writer’s submission guidelines here: http://furplanet.com/shop/custom.aspx?recid=10    .   Like this post?
