NOIR:  

Since the days of Raymond Chandler and Dorothy B. Hughes, Dashiell Hammett and Mickey Spillane, the down, but not quite out private eye — the gumshoe, shamus, dick, sleuthhound, beagle, skip tracer — has been an archetype of literature and cinema. Moreover, some of the most memorable of these hard-boiled, lone investigators have lived in the pages of fantasy and science fiction. Whether in the filthy lanes of an ancient magical city or the sterile corridors of a lonely outpost in space, there are always crimes to be solved and detectives needing a few bucks to make their rent or buy their next bottle of bourbon. In this anthology, we invite writers to spin their webs of mystery and deceit in the NOIR voice...

Edited by David B. Coe and John Zakour, NOIR will contain approximately fourteen spine-tingling stories with an average length of 6,000 words each. Anchor authors include: Rod Belcher, Alex Bledsoe, Julie E. Czerneda, Esther Friesner, D.B. Jackson, Justin Jordan, Aprilynne Pike, Steven Harper Piziks, and Andrija Popovic.

 



SHATTERING THE GLASS SLIPPER

Fairy tales have been around for thousands of years, but it’s time to turn the age-old tropes on their head. In SHATTERING THE GLASS SLIPPER, we want you to step into realms where princesses plan their own rescues, where princes are encouraged to find a better line of work, and where Happily Ever After is turned upside down by those achieving six impossible things before breakfast. Discover worlds where falling down a rabbit hole may be a deliberate act of sabotage…or a trip through a wormhole. Come explore roads less traveled and meet the little match girl determined to light the fires of revolution. SHATTERING THE GLASS SLIPPER will feature fourteen stories from around the world - and the galaxy - that shatter fairy tale tropes and create a new “happily ever after.”

Edited by Rhondi Salsitz & Crystal Sarakas, SHATTERING THE GLASS SLIPPER will contain approximately fourteen stories with an average length of 6,000 words each. Anchor authors (and their chosen fairy tale) include: R.J. Blain (Jack and the Bean Stalk), Patricia Bray (Rumpelstiltskin), José Pablo Iriarte, Alethea Kontis, Cat Rambo, Rhondi Salsitz (Twelve Dancing Princesses), and Rachel Swirsky.

 



BRAVE NEW WORLDS

Humans have dreamed of traveling to the stars for generations. Their hope? To discover verdant new planets where they can build new societies or escape past persecutions. Brave New Worlds will feature fourteen stellar stories set anywhere along our prospective settlers’ uncertain paths—from the heart-wrenching departure from Earth, through the unknown dangers of the long flight through the cold vastness of space, to the immigrants’ final arrival on an alien world. Will they be confronted by the ethical issue of an entirely new ecosystem, or the pure engineering challenges of terraforming a previously lifeless planet? Join us in Brave New Worlds as we explore humanity’s race for the stars!

Edited by S.C. Butler & Joshua Palmatier, BRAVE NEW WORLDS will contain approximately fourteen stories with an average length of 6,000 words each. Anchor authors include: Jacey Bedford, Chaz Brenchley, Eric Choi, Auston Habershaw, Juliet Kemp, Gini Koch, Stephen Leigh, and Ian Tregillis.
