IN STEFAN’S HOUSE
A tribute anthology to Stefan Grabiński
For 35+ years my father worked for the NJ transit railway system. I’ve been around that sort of thing since before I could remember. One of my favorite memories is visiting a signal box when I was very young.
That is the reason why many of Grabinski’s stories resonate with me.
Seeking: Short stories 2k to 4k (I will consider longer stories but there will be a pay cap at 4k)
Payment: $.02 a word USD via Paypal and 1 contributor’s copy.
Deadline: January 15th, 2018 (extended from Dec. 25)
Format: Single-spaced RTF file to firstname.lastname@example.org with “In Stefan’s House” in the subject line. Please include an introductory message in the email just for the sake of politeness.
Details: Stories about trains, railways, signal boxes, etc etc.. are all welcome but not mandatory as Grabinski did explore other themes and imagery. (Think fire). I would recommend you be already familiar with his work before you submit. Good luck, god speed, and whatever.
Rights: Two year exclusive print and e-book rights to the story.
WE ARE CLOSED TO GENERAL SUBMISSIONS
If you have submitted something and haven’t heard from us, please contact email@example.com
Before submitting, we recommend that you become acquainted with the books published by Dunhams Manor (or Dynatox Ministries in general). Buy a book or two to check out the quality of our books. After that, feel free to pitch an idea or submit a manuscript. You can do so by writing to filmynoir (at) live (dot) (com) When submitting a manuscript, please submit it SINGLED-SPACED, even between paragraphs. Please include a short synopsis of your story in the email as well as a SHORT author bio. We welcome new authors so if you don’t have any publications under your belt, don’t worry about it. WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR? We really want Weird Fiction that’s personal, cosmic, and psychological. We here at Dunhams enjoy the fiction of Thomas Ligotti, Richard Gavin, Stefan Grabinski, Thomas Bernhard, Robert Aickman, etc.. So keep that in mind. We are NOT looking for horror stories that are simply vehicles for Cthulhu Mythos entities. If you are going to involve any of Lovecraft’s cosmic horrors, you better be doing it in an offbeat way. This is not a Lovecraftian press. (Though we love Lovecraft).
submissions for vol. 2 are closed, but are you currently open for future (vol. 3 & beyond) short fiction submissions?
We are not open to submissions for XNOYBIS 3 yet but will have an announcement on the site once we are.
