From the Web Site:
Shadows of a Fading World is a classic sword-and-sorcery style fantasy e-Book anthology in the dying earth subgenre. Submissions should pay homage to the roots of the genre - adventure, romance, dark sorceries, mysterious locales, and the grit and grime of common life all have a role to play.
The "dying earth" aspect of the stories form a commonality for the anthology. This element should be present in all submissions. Authors may make this an integral part of the story, or simply use it to provide background and flavor.
We are looking for original stories, set in a world of the author's own creation. Stories should invoke visions of the classic tales of Robert E. Howard, Fritz Leiber, Jack Vance, Michael Moorcock, and others., but authors should not feel bound by any particular style.
Submissions should be between 3000 and 10,000 words, and should follow a standard manuscript format, with the exception that text formatting should appear as it is meant to in the final work. Please send submissions in .doc, .docx, .rtf, or .odt format, only. All submissions are made by email to:
We are open to submissions until October 31, 2013.
