Known for pushing the boundaries of Genre Fiction, Pro Se Productions announces an anthology from its newest imprint that combines two wildly different standards of Pulp into one great collection.
A MINOR GLIMPSE, Pro Se’s latest creator centered imprint, will feature anthologies centered around urban fantasy concepts developed by Pro Se’s own Morgan Minor (writer, editor, and Pro Se’s Director of Corporate Operations), as well as full length works based on her own ideas. Minor proudly announces an open call for the first A MINOR GLIMPSE anthology- ‘Monsters and Bars’.
"Some of the best stories,” says Minor, “start with one of two things--a good drink or a mad, wild monster jumping out of nowhere. And here, we're going to meld the two. Monsters and Bars will open up the 'what if' part of your brain--What if that guy across the bar was actually a Kappa? Or the woman dancing slowly in a circle is a Banshee? What if?"
Stories for ‘Monsters and Bars’ must be take place in the 1920s, 1940s, 1960s, or 1980s. The stories must also be set in or largely feature a bar, club, pub, tavern, or public watering hole of some sort. Submissions must also include as a primary character in some fashion at least one monster contemporary to the era in which the story is set. Stories must be 10,000 words in length.
Authors interested in contributing to ‘Monsters and Bars’ must submit a 1-3 paragraph proposal by April 15, 2014 to firstname.lastname@example.org outlining the concept of the story they are proposing as well as detailing the setting, the time period, and the primary characters. There are six openings for stories in this anthology and all accepted writers will receive 5 % royalty on every dollar made. If an author’s story is accepted, the final story will be due no later than August 1st, 2014 and must be mailed to email@example.com.
‘Monsters and Bars’, the first anthology from A MINOR GLIMPSE, Pro Se’s creator focused imprint that takes an unique look at Urban Fantasy, is scheduled for a late 2014/early 2015 release.
