Plaidswede Publishing has an open call for a New Hampshire-themed fantasy antho: "Come all ye tale-tellers, yarn-spinners and bards! The sixth volume of the New Hampshire Pulp Fiction series is now open for submissions—and your submission needs to be fantastic: literally! Volume VI, tentatively titled “Live Free or Dragons,” is seeking New Hampshire-based fantasy fiction. Elves at the town meeting, unicorns in the White Mountains, or supernatural lumberjacks in the north country. If you’ve known the magic of a bright autumn day, hoped to meet a faerie on the streets of Nashua, or felt that something wondrous might lurk in the chill of a boulder cave, this anthology is for you. Your story can be contemporary, historical or other-worldly—as long as it features a strong New Hampshire connection." More on the theme: "New Hampshire must be integral to the story but how you use it is up to you!" Length: "Submissions should be 1,000 to 8,000 words long." Payment: " Payment will be $50 on publication and two copies of the book." No reprints, electronic submissions only, see guidelines for more details. Deadline" May 1st, 2015.
