New Railway-themed Anthology opens for submissions...
« on: June 16, 2012, 09:47:38 am »
Eibonvale Press is issuing a call for submissions for an anthology of stories connected to the railway. The concept is pretty open but the
book aims to gather a collection of works revolving around the railway with a modern and innovative aesthetic ranging from horror to
surrealism and beyond. "Rustblind and Silverbright" will be published in 2013. It takes its title from a wonderful short story about trains by the German writer Wolfgang Borchert, who was said to have cut his trigger finger off on the Russian Front so that he couldn't serve the Nazis. Ponder that over your suburban breakfast. More info and the full guidelines can be downloaded at:

Thanks for posting that. I've always had a fascination for abandoned railway lines, trains, bridges, stations, etc. There's some creepy video footage to be found on You tube. Never done a railway horror. Tempting.

Are you sure they haven't gone off the rails?

With comments like that, perhaps you should be tied to them? ;D

Railways have been important in history.
My favourite train story is of course THE TRAINS by Robert Aickman.
And any story where the plot evolves during conversation between passengers on a train journey.

Reminds me I already have a story on those lines that just needs editing ;D
