INK STAINS January 2018 issue shaping up!

Stove in abandoned lab

I’m happy to announce that the Table of Contents for the anthology I’m guest editing—Ink Stains January 2018—is coming together nicely!

Before exploring the submissions box, I acquired two stories by dear friends that I’d read years ago and never forgotten (both pieces were not intended for publication; they were part of theses, so fortunately for me the rights were still available!). One more—a poem, actually, which will serve as the preface—came along by default, and I have feelers out for another piece, but I won’t know if that’s going to come through for a few weeks, probably. I’ll talk about these in another post.

For now, I’d like to announce that contracts have been signed to publish the following:

“As We Rot,” by Taro Turner

“Black-Hooded Caller,” by Pablo Patiño

“The Mating Habits of the Late-Adopting Smoker,” by Dorianne Emmerton

I’m still on the hunt for four or five more pieces—and I have until June to do it. The emerging theme is turning out to be decay (grief counts as part of this). If you’d like to submit, follow the guidelines here: http://www.darkalleypress.com/inkstainsanthology/
