INK STAINS January 2018 issue update, call for subs: April, 2017

Abandoned Building Art

The last couple of months have been busy on the Ink Stains January 2018 issue. It hasn’t been easy finding pieces that ring my bell for this anthology–I’m looking for that specific something that’s intangible, really; pieces that are making a specific statement about decay that isn’t the same statement that any of the already accepted pieces have made. So far, though, I’ve been lucky! Since the last update, contracts have been signed to publish:

“The Depths,” by Elizabeth Allen

“Stikini,” by Travis D. Roberson

These will be joining:

“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 a few more pieces, depending on length—and I have until June to do it. As noted, 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/
