World Building Wednesday: A Grimoire of Eldritch Inquests

Calling all budding horror, fantasy and thriller writers. Emby Press is looking for contributions for a new anthology of occult detective stories.

Call For Submissions:

Give us your best, most fascinating and eccentric characters, or continue the adventures of a character in the public domain. It’s up to you. Just make certain that they are investigating something, be it murder by monster, death by curse, blackmail, fraud, theft, extortion, kidnapping, child endangerment, alimony payments, or anything that makes up a compelling mystery. And make certain that the mystery is supernatural in nature, or at the very least appears to point in an otherworldly direction, even if it ends with a gang of thieves using hallucinogens, a mastiff covered in phosphorescent paint, or even teenagers pulling off a villain’s mask. Occult Detective fiction reaches back to at least 1855, and now we want to continue the tradition in grand fashion with A Grimoire of Eldritch Inquests!

And the most exciting thing about this anthology? It's being co-edited by m'colleague Mr Josh Reynolds, he of Gotrek and Felix and the Royal Occultist fame.

So what are you waiting for? You have until 1 August 2014 to get your submissions in.

Maybe it's about time I unleashed a new character of my own upon the world...
