Attention Writers! Seventh Star Press Proudly Announces Its Next Anthology Project, Perfect Flaw: Dystopian Stories, with Editor Robin Blankenship
Seventh Star Press is proud to announce its second anthology project, Perfect Flaw: Dystopian Stories, with editor Robin Blankenship
As with the first SSP anthology project, The End Was Not the End: Post-Apocalyptic Fantasy Tales (editor Joshua Leet) this anthology project will allow for short stories of up to 10,000 words.
The stories must be set within a society in a repressive and controlled state, which can be under the guise of a utopian society. The genre of the stories can be anything from Horror to Science Fiction, Fantasy, Steampunk and other forms of speculative ficiton
This anthology is intended to be a book that is a exploration of society gone wrong. “Utopian” societies that mask the true, underlying controlled state. Stories of people fighting back against the repression in hopes of a better place for the average person. Groups forming to fight the fatal flaw that the people in charge strive to cover up to keep the masses in line.
Submissions must be in by Midnight of January 8, 2013. Please provide a cover letter and use standard manuscript format. They can be emailed to: Robin at seventhstarpress.com
The anthology is being targeted for release in the late spring of 2013, in both print and eBook formats.
A freelance editor and book reviewer, Robin Blankenship has a background in teaching and is currently embarking on her Masters in Folk Studies.
