Short Story Anthology

A short story anthology has been in development at Engage Books, and I am exited to announce this project in greater detail. This anthology is purely SF with a focus on stories that take place in space or on distant worlds. We are looking for stories that are fresh, that entertain, and provide readers with a strong reaction.

Compensation for this project is unique for a short story anthology. Generally publishers offer roughly anywhere from one cent to three cents per word.* Engage will provide each author with a royalty rate of 1% on the retail price and 40% off author purchases. If the anthology is successful, this will directly benifit authors. There will be roughly twelve contributors, of which we have already filled two spots.

       Work must be original and previously unpublished.
       Anywhere from 2,000 to 10,000 words (thereabouts).
       This is not a competition, which means there's no entry fee.
       Please include a self addressed stamped envelope or email address.

Submit your short story through our submissions form.
