Editor V. Ulea seeks submissions of short stories, flash fiction, film and book interpretations for a new print anthology: Quantum Genre on the Planet of Arts. Stories and artworks should meet the requirements of “quantum genre” explained in detail in the manifesto published by Sein & Werden
Basically, the Quantum Genre is not theme-based but style-based. In other words, Quantum Works are not about quantum theory but quantum representation of characters and their worlds. The style is distinguished by a high degree of obscurity of both the narrative and characters which are subject to mutability and ambiguity.
V. Ulea requests all submissions begin with briefly describing why you consider your work to be QW
Send no more than TWO stories and FOUR flash fiction. Stories should be no more than 3,000 words each, and flash fiction should be no more than 1,000 words each). Film and book reviews should focus on the “quantum” qualities of quantum genre-movies/books (see the manifesto for more details). They should not exceed 1,000 words. No minimum.
Deadline is May 1, 2009. Scheduled release is September 1, 2009.
Payment is 4 cents per word in the anthology for new work. A friendly tip of the hat for previously published work.
Select stories and articles (not based on quality) will also be featured in a Quantum themed issue of Sein und Werden. The editor may request that certain works be featured in the Sein und Werden issue yet not in the Crossing Chaos anthology (again, not based on quality).
Send written works in doc format; artworks as jpeg to...
