Could be interesting if any of you want to work with each other on something.

Exposure only unless you win.

They have other anthologies on the look out for stories but don't pay much (if at all). One of them is a hack up holidays thing, which may be a good place to send your advent calendar stories after their TTA appearance...

I've had a few of my stories published with Pill Hill, and i have to say they are very professional and great to work with. So I definitely recommend everyone to submit.
I'm entering this with a few friends, but you are allowed to enter with two different teams. So if anyone would like to join forces, id be happy to work with you.

Strictly SF I assume but there are lots of IZ connections though they are not obvious from the web page.
No guidelines found so far but keep an eye out.

I was tempted to put this under the typo heading:

The thing that made me laugh was:

Quote:
The Alchemy Press is seeking submissions for THE ALCHEMY PRESS BOOK OF PULP HEROES, edited by Mike Chinn.

The Shadow, The Bat, Doc Savage, The Spider; Dashiell Hammett’s Continental Detective Agency; Dusty Ayers & His Battle Birds; Sheena and Ka-Zar. Hard-boiled detectives, sinister vigilantes, bizarre villains – the staple of the Pulp tradition. We want fiction that celebrates (or subverts) that tradition – as well as taking a wild new look at it. Fiction set in the 1930s and 40s, the far future or mythical past, or the present day. Two-fisted heroes – and heroines – fighting for right and justice in the midnight city, foetid jungles or exotic, far-flung lands. Deranged villains for whom the world is never enough.

Sports stories, spy stories, aircraft & zeppelin stories, sea & pirate stories, Westerns, medieval romance, horror, science fiction and fantasy, movies and car racing – there’s no limit.


Does anyone under 60 remember/recognise names like "The Shadow, The Bat, Doc Savage, The Spider; Dashiell Hammett’s Continental Detective Agency; Dusty Ayers & His Battle Birds; Sheena and Ka-Zar." ?

If you are thinking about a YA novel, get on with it assuming you are in the age bracket.
