There really is nothing like a closing deadline to put a bomb under you. 🙂 Seventh Star Press have been taking submissions for a new anthology that I really wanted to put something in for. The anthology is entitled ‘A Chimerical World: Tales of the Seelie Court/Tales of the Unseelie Court’, which had me chomping at the bit from the outset!
It’s going out in flip-book format, with half the stories being about the Seelie folk, and the other half about the Unseelie. Guess which half I pitched for. 😉
I ended up writing something fairly traditional, drawing subtly on common themes from Celtic and other British mythology, such as the Wild Hunt and changelings.
It’ll probably be a while until I hear one way or the other, but regardless of whether my story makes the cut, I can’t wait until this book comes out!
