Further to its announcement that it is seeking submissions for The Alchemy Press Book of Pulp Heroes edited by Mike Chinn, Alchemy is also seeking submissions for The Alchemy Press Book of Ancient Wonders edited by Jan Edwards and Jenny Barber.
“Standing stones, burial mounds, ruined castles or sunken settlements, the ancient sites that litter our landscapes have a mysterious appeal which cannot be denied. Think myth come to life; old folktales updated; the consequences of tomb raiding; hidden guardians and secret civilisations; from archaeology to tourism; mysticism and myth; folklore to the fantastical. Take us on a journey around the esoteric and enigmatic places that cannot fail to fire the imagination. Intrigue us, thrill us, make us wonder about the where, the what and the who.
We are interested in fantasy, SF, weird and horror tales of all kinds (no erotica, romance or poetry).”
The Alchemy Press Book of Ancient Wonders will be published in paperback in September 2012, to be followed by an ebook edition later. Contributions must be in the range of 2,000 – 6,000 words. The submission period runs from 1 April 2012 to 30 June 2012.
