submission call for two themed anthologies - cross posted

All writers are invited to submit stories to the following two anthologies edited by me:

1) Tentative Title: CHEER UP, UNIVERSE

Perhaps something we need in these bleak times. For this anthology, I am seeking ORIGINAL speculative fiction stories (both SF and Fantasy) that make us feel good. Feeling good is subjective so going into specifics is not possible. However, to illustrate the concept, I can point out two classic stories that made me feel good: "Minister Without Portfolio" by Mildred Clingerman, "The Widget, The Wadget and Boff" by Theodore Sturgeon. Hope you get the idea.

Length: No restriction

Payment: 1 cent a word to a maximum of $15 + a copy of the anthology



Deadline: June 30, 2009 or when filled.

Response time: One day to 3 months

2) Tentative Title: FUN TIMES IN ANDROMEDA

I am looking for speculative stories aimed at pre-teens. Target readers: precocious kids between the ages of 10-12. The anthology will be fully illustrated.

Length: No restriction

Payment: A copy of the anthology.

Reprints and simultaneous submissions accepted.

Deadline: June 30, 2009 or when filled

Response time: One day to 3 months

Guidelines common to both anthologies:

- Formatting: Use standard formatting. If you want to show italics, use italics and not underlines.
- Send stories to ai_59 at yahoo dot com. as rtf or doc attachments
- In the subject line, state the title of the anthology to which you are submitting the story
