UNDERLAND PRESS is seeking mystery, crime, dark fantasy, horror, and other speculative types of fiction for a loosely-themed anthology to be released in the winter of 2020. This one is called "Eighteen," and is symbolic of the great river at night, where the wolves howl and all doors are open. All thresholds are possible, and every truth is elusive. The Eighteenth Tarot card is the Moon, and those who raise their arms to her know she offers Mercy and Severity in equal measure. These are stories of mischief and mayhem. These are stories of magic.

Eighteen is in series with Thirteen: Stories of Transformation, which was published by Underland Press. You may find out more information about Thirteen here.

Submissions for Eighteen should be between 2k and 5k in length, and should be sent to editors@underlandpress.com. Acceptable formats are .RTF and .DOC. Any other format may be deleted unread. Please include a brief cover letter. Payment for stories to be included in Eighteen will be $0.01 per word.

The reading period for Eighteen is open now, and will remain so until September 1st, 2019. In extraordinary circumstances, longer stories may be considered. Please wait until September 30th to query if you have not heard back in regards to your story.

Publication is scheduled for the spring equinox of 2020, when the wheel turns and the waters flow again.
