WHAT THEY'RE SEEKING:


Think Conan, King Kull, Bran Mak Morn, Deathstalker, Masters of the Universe, Conquest, etc. Think warlocks raising an army of corpses, of dark barbarians walking perilous quests, of battles in oceans of blood.

EXTRA INFORMATION:


This will be a blind and unbiased acceptance process. A third party will be the only person who has access to the submission emails. If your submission meets all basic guidelines and formatting requirements, they will send me the story without an author name attached. We will be using a numbers system to keep track of authors and manuscripts. If I decide to accept the story into the anthology, only then will they provide me with the author’s name. If I don’t accept the story, I will never know who wrote it. This ensures that I won’t be choosing submitted stories based on friendships or favoritism. Instead, stories will make it into the anthology based on merit alone. Please do not message me asking if I’ve read your submission. I won’t know if I’ve read your submission unless it gets accepted.


FORMATTING GUIDELINES:


Times New Roman

12pt font

Double Spaced

3 Centered Asterisks (Dinkus) For All Section Breaks
