Calling all authors!

I'm going to post this every day until you like it.

Twit: saving independent publishing one anthology at a time

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s that time again: Twit Publishing has officially announced submissions are open for their last volume of their PULP! anthology for Winter/Spring 2013!

That’s right, it’s the last one.  Don’t get your panties in a twist – Twit isn’t closing up shop after this – but this will be the last in what has been the original anthology collection that has put them on the map. They will still be coming out with great stuff in the future, like the Dieselpunk anthology I’ve profiled before on two separate occasions, both here and then here, but they’ll be putting this puppy to bed after the Winter/Spring edition hits print and digital bookshelves, so this is your last chance to get your name in lights – you’ve got until November 30th to send in your submissions, so don’t delay.

And before you ask, yes I do plan on submitting something to this last anthology as well.  The Brothers Gabrysch are what my fiancée’s grandmother would have called “total mensches,” so I’m going to do my damnedest to come up with another short story that will be worthy of inclusion once more in a fine collection of fiction.

At any rate, if you’re looking to get in on the action, go check out Twit’s submission guidelines today!

  1. Hmmmm to write or not to write… that is the question! A dieselpunk story might be fun to do so I could be considered for the next anthologies after pulp. But id need to know more about the guidelines for the dieselpunk stuff. Like does it have to be earth ala indianna jones? Does there have to be sciency explainations or can I use magic/alchemy style stuff too? Sooo much to think about this time.

    • Dieselpunk is a pretty permissive genre. The first three Indiana Jones movies are perfect examples, but any setting where you’re using technology and culture from the first half of the 20th century would fit just as well – as long as you stay away from any nuclear age tech. If you think about the style and art direction of the Metal Slug games, that’s a great resource as well.

      You can do a Harry Turtledove alternate history thing, set it on a distant planet, or have a dimension-hopping setting as well. If you want a good idea of the range of things you can employ, you should totally check out the two advance reader reviews I wrote on Twit’s Dieselpunk collection if you haven’t yet – the stories in there are really varied.

  2. It sounds like PULP! may be going to a bimonthly free literary magazine style thing (strictly online of course). So it’ll still be around.

    Chris and I are working out the details since it’s requires new contracts, ad revenue generation, etc.

    And, thank you! I’ve never been called a mensch before. You made me actually laugh out loud.
