No sooner have the gates closes on subs to Eibonvale's last anthology ('Rustblind and Silverbright': an anthology or railway-themed stories) than they are launching a new one. This one will be edited by the great Hal Duncan and the wonderful Chris Kelso. Entitled " Caledonia Dreamin' ", they will be looking for 'strange fiction' in the loosest sense, i.e. modern and surreal rather than historical pastiche, each story to be inspired by a particular Scots word. Don't worry if you're not Scottish, because you'd be surrpised how many Scots words have eaten their way into the world's wider vocabulary. Few of them translate into English directly, and therefore embody culture-specific ideas which are a rich treasure trove to busk on. Here's a link to the full guidelines:
Word limit: 1000 - 12000 words. Closing Date: 31st May. Noo get birlin' an' scrievin' ya rapscallion gowks ye!
