Submission Window Opening


Last chance of this year! We will be reading your anchro-retro-vintastic stories from the 1st to the 21st of October. On this go we will be looking for dieselpunk style stories to fill up Curiosities #4 (autumn),  vintage horror & dreadpunk to flesh out Curiosities #5 (late winter), and we will be looking for a Christmas or Winter Holiday story. This doesn’t exclude other styles, but understand that those may languish in the production pile longer if selected.

It would be splendid if you would read the guidelines.
