Submission Guidelines: The Mammoth Book of Dieselpunk [Mar. 13th, 2014|06:35 pm]
I'm now taking original submissions for The Mammoth Book of Dieselpunk, to be published by Constable & Robinson in the UK and Running Press in the US in 2015. Stories from 2,000 to 20,000 words can be emailed at The deadline is August 1st, 2014. You will be notified soon after the deadline if your work is accepted or rejected. Pay rate is five cents a word to eight cents a word for originals and three cents for reprints..

If you need to know what dieselpunk is, it's a subcategory of steampunk, essentially, covering the 1920s through the 1950s, including the Roaring Twenties, the Depression, World War II, and even a little beyond that, but here's the thing: I want material from all over the world, I don't want a white-washed representation of this theme.

Spread the word.

if you have any reprints that you'd like to recommend, please feel free to help us out here.
