Via AbsoluteWrite.com's paying markets forum, House of Erotica has an open call for their upcoming erotic steampunk antho, and the editor is looking for ". . . stories set in a might-have-been Victorian setting filled with clockwork machines and airships. Think Jules Verne or League of Extraordinary Gentleman, think Sherlock Holmes with clockwork machines and the film Wild, Wild West. The stories do not have to be focused in the Victorian era they could be modern day stories but still with the Victorian clockwork style. They could even be off world – think spaceships powered by nothing but steam, or mighty metal boats propelled by sails powered by the rays of the sun. Be as inventive as you can but please don't forget the story line and the relationships! Since this is an erotic anthology there should be on the page sex scenes however don't forget the interaction between the characters and the relationship they have" Length: 5-15K; Payment: 40% of net profits split between contributors; no reprints, electronic submissions only, see post for more details.
