UF Sub Op
Infinite Acacia has an open call for their upcoming UF antho: "Infinite Urban Fantasy One will be a collection of urban fantasy short stories. We are looking for great UF that breaks away from the tired tropes of the genre. Think Zoo City, by Lauren Beukes or The Skyscraper Throne Trilogy by Tom Pollock. Sure, throw your vampires at us, but have you seen the sheer number of stories (good and bad) about them--they damn well be special if we're going to consider using them ourselves. Same goes for werewolves, witches, and little faeries living in Bon Temps." Length 1-17.5K; Payment: "Pay is 1¢ per word for the first 4,000 words." Reprints okay, electronic submissions only, see guidelines for more details. Submissions open September 30th, 2014 (don't send before); Deadline: December 31st, 2014.
