A new anthology has opened for submissions: I'm looking at you JT - I'm thinking you may very well have something for this...For everyone else, if you have a story on a ship, go have a look.
Yes, I saw that and did a short happy dance. Maybe I can finally find a home for DC, after chopping out a couple thousand words.
Sob! Sob! They have such fantastic anthology ideas (I hurt every time I see the four horsemen one) but we can't enter. You need a US address.
I wonder what the justification is for the regional restriction. Seems odd in this day and age.
I saw that one as well and I am reminded of a movie trailer that Barry (I think it was Barry) showed me a couple of weeks ago. Sounds like a seriously cool idea.
I've got a story they might want as well. I'm glad I live on this patch of land instead of some other patch of land--apparently that's important for some reason.
Thanks for posting this! I wonder why the regional restriction though?
Damn - When I read this I thought only of JT and his story I know is looking for a home.My guess is the contributors copy part of the payment. It costs a great deal of money to send books around the world. It would make sense to only have it local when starting up to keep costs down.I wonder what they would do, if I sent a story to a US resident and had them send it from their address, stating that any books/cheques can be returned to that US address? Then, if the story was chosen, the said US resident could keep the book as payment for doing the favour and if there was a cheque, send money through paypal and keep the cheque for themselves.Would that work?
It depends on the T&Cs. If it stipulates US residents, then it would be bad form to be caught out. And you would be. If it just requires a US address for correspondence then no worries. It currently says:Who can submit?:We are only accepting submissions from authors with a US address - we hope to change this to include international authors in the future. Please check back with us.An email to the editor with an enquiry is in order, methinks. BT?
That phrase difference - US residents and US address - has been rattling around in my head since we started discussing this as well - good call, Alan.I think an enquiry email from the market database administrator is in order - just to clarify questions from interested members...
Email away - I'll let you know what the answer is.
