Anthology News .2

We are hoping to get around 13 to 15 tales. 3 or 4 flash fiction, which are stories between 50 words to 1000. We would like a poem to open with. We are far from being full.

Keep in mind I am siting on 20 unread stories. I am waiting for my co-editor to catchup.

We are getting a lot of stories where people are shocked that cats talk. I am fine with talking cats, but the shock part is getting old.

We are getting a lot cats hunting people.

What about:

a ghost cat

a zombie cat

a frankensten monster's cat

time traveling cats

hero cats

pirate cats

Southern, Russian, Egypt, Japanese cats

cats of fate

cats owned by famous people

cats living off planet

cats working in an old age homes


We've got in one or two for the other collections but we more than willing to read for them as well.


We are considering collections of:

Stories inspired by Poe

Modern takes on: Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, Wizard of Oz

Modern takes on Scheherazade

Shop of Curiosities

Flunkies of the Apocalypse (The guys who do all the small stuff before and after the apocalypse.)

Slippers and Spinning Wheels (fairy tales)

Romancing the Classics: The Tale of Genji, Jane Eyre, The Scarlet Pimpernel, Pride and Prejudice, Rebecca, Wuthering Heights,
Great Expectations.

Hi Ho Away We Go: Trazan, Conan the Barbarian, Quatermass, Doc Savage. Buck Rodgers
