Call for Submissions: Tales from the Den
We’re planning to release a new title from Bear Bones Books — a book of fantastical and scary stories aimed at Bears. So if you have something apt — and we don’t mean men turning into real bears (have several sterling examples of this already) — then drop us an email: bearsoup [AT] gmail [DOT] com.
Tales From The Den: Wild and Weird Stories for Bears
Publisher: Lethe Press / Bear Bones Books
Lethe Press is looking to release in 2011 an anthology of supernatural stories featuring bears. No, for those stuck at the zoo, the term Bears refers not to Genus Ursa, but to the subculture of burly, hairy, mature gay and bi men.
Stories should be well-developed and may be erotic, but the thrills involved need not be smutty. We want more than the usual lycanthropy; send us stories that explore all the diversity within bear culture.
Stories may range from 1,500 – 6,500 words. Please e-mail query ASAP to bearsoup [AT] gmail [DOT] com. Include your name, mailing address, phone number, and e-mail address, a 2- or 3-sentence synopsis, as well as your <100-word bio sketch.
Contributors will receive two copies of the anthology and payment upon publication. Reprints considered.
