Augh, so this one is kind of late, as the deadline is creeping up on us here. If it makes you feel better, I’m in the middle of writing my story, and might get it done today, I’m not sure. But here it is, this week’s market, called Something in The Machine.
It’s an anthology that is going to center on horror and fright from the machines that our lives depend upon to an increasing extent every day. Here’s the catch, though. Your story needs to not come off as anti technology, or anti progress. While the horror should come from the machine, it shouldn’t be demonizing technology. As a techno freak, I approve. Two thumbs up and all.
Word Count- Under 10,000
Sub Date- July 31 (I told you it was soon.)
Wait Time- Not specified.
Rights- First publication rights and exclusivity for six months.
Here’s your link to full submission details. Good luck.
Also, here’s a story prompt for your weekend pleasure. Or to get you started on your story here. What’s your favorite bit of technology? How could it kill you? I went with a tablet, myself. I’m pretty sure at this point I need it to breath.
