Not All Monsters… UPDATE

cropped-new-tentacle

As you may have heard, Strangehouse Books is working on quite the anthology for 2020.

Right now, we are looking at an October 2020 release for Not All Monsters. We wanted to make sure we set out the date far ahead, so as to give us enough time to really prepare, thoroughly edit, and give ourselves a wide window with which to execute the production. The book will probably end up at 90-100K words. We wanted to be sure to have lots of space for lots of voices. And let me tell you, it is a good thing we’ve approached this anthology the way we have.

Submissions have been open less than two weeks and we’ve gotten so, so many stories. The response to our call has been overwhelming, to say the least, and we couldn’t be happier about it. Reading through will take considerable time, but authors should expect to hear from us starting in February.

Submissions will remain open until we’re completely satisfied with our selections and the 90-100K word count has been met.

We look forward to reading your work!

We are closing in on the end of our production schedule for 2018. The last several weeks have seen some great new books go live: Andrew James Stone’s All Hail the House Gods; Christoph Paul’s At Least I Get You < In My Art; Matthew Sunrich’s Someone Shot the Hip Young Conductor; Charles Austin Muir’s Body Building Spider Rangers.

For October, we are currently prepping both Michael Allen Rose’s Rock and Roll Death Patrol and Sara Tantlinger’s The Devil’s Dreamland, respectively.

Beyond that, we have Gareth Bennett’s The Full Howie, and then…

…well, that’s it, for a good, long while. Let’s talk about that.

NOT ALL MONSTERS: an anthology

This anthology will be edited by Sara Tantlinger and released by Strangehouse Books in the fall of 2020.

From the editor:

“There are monsters in every woman’s life. And while maybe not ALL monsters are so bad, I want you to tell me about the dark and twisted ones. Give me protagonists who take no shit. Show me women who save themselves. Does the hero slay the beast, or is she the monster? All types of monsters, protagonists, and antagonists are welcome here. I am looking for speculative fiction containing strong prose with character-driven stories that convey powerful messages. I am particularly drawn to the beautiful grotesque, gothic elements, the macabre, and poetic prose, but I welcome all well-crafted stories to be submitted.”

All writers who identify as women are welcome to submit.
