Call for Works for a New Anthology of Strange Fiction:
Edited by Chris Kelso and Hal Duncan
"Glaikit, mockit, droukit, drouthy, couthy, scunner, thrawn – the Scots language is rich with words too gallus not to glory in, dialect terms that deserve better than to be boxed away as precious oddities. For us, those words aren't quaint parochialisms of a past preserved in amber; they're wild wee beauties, straight razors slashing keen to the quick of meaning. We want stories that wield them as weapons for today, for tomorrow. We want you to pick up one of these words and flick it open to gleam in the light of the 21st century. Play with it, work with it, give us a story that riffs on it with relish – the sound, the sense. Run wild with it, ye ramstouger rannigants, and send us the result."
Submission deadline is 31 May 2013.

Eibonvale Press aims to produce exceptionally attractive and lovingly designed editions of good quality and intelligent modern horror, magic realism, slipstream, the surreal and related areas. That said, I am not constrained by genre boundaries within my general area of work but I am interested in works that seek to develop their own voices. Writers should browse around the website and read some of our books ideally, to get a feel for what we are like and what we are interested in.
However, Eibonvale is a tiny press, publishing a handful of books a year at the moment. This means that I have to be selective and can also take some time to respond. For this reason, I will be opening for short periods when I need to look for new titles, then closing again when I have enough, simply so I can keep on top of things. Therefore I recommend any interested writer to keep a close close eye on what is happening. All announcements will be made both here on this page and through the Eibonvale Newsletter or blog. So I recommend joining me there and subscribing to get the latest news as it breaks.
Please note that I am not currently able to accept artist submissions (unless conceivably if you are willing to work for free!). Send me stuff for my viewing pleasure by all means (!) but currently I do all the art for these books myself and am not in a position to pay others for artworks.
