Real announcement to follow, this is sort of a leak to my LJ friends list, which I know contains a lot of writers.|
One of my upcoming game projects is a science fiction short story game. It's as of yet unnamed, and it focuses on the kind of "real life gone horribly awry in apparently inexplicable ways" genre of PK Dick, WM Burroughs, Robert Charles Wilson, and Rudy Rucker.
I would like to include in anthology with the game a few short stories in that sub-genre. I've recruited an editor, funwithrage, to help me with the sorting and collection (ultimately, inclusion or not will be her call: she's the editor. Even my stuff goes through her.) I will be paying semi-pro rate (5c a word) probably with a minimum (for microfic) and a maximum (we don't want novellas really). As such, pretty soon I'm going to be opening a call for submissions.
And I thought you might want to know about that in advance.
