TANSTAAFL Press is Seeking Apocalyptic Stories for ‘Enter the Aftermath’ Anthology - Pays up to 8 cents/word
TANSTAAFL Press (est. 2011), a speculative fiction publisher of sci-fi/fantasy books, is launching an anthology series. The second anthology, “Enter the Aftermath” needs short fiction stories transpiring after the devastation of an apocalypse.
Story length: up to 8K words per story.
Payment: up to 8 cents per word (3 cents/word average).
SO I’ve FINALLY posted the first two chapters for a fic I’ve been working on for the past few months (my contribution to the Reylo anthology); if you’re interested in some Rey x Kylo feat. hints of Greek mythology pls give it a read! (The smut will be worth the wait tbh - tho I am a bit biased)
I got the proofs back from the printers for the latest Tree Paper anthology. It’s looking pretty great. Thanks to all the amazing contributing artists: @benhutchings@jagdkunst@sourlemonpress Maude Farrugia, Sophie Watson, @guzumo Barry Linton and Owen Heitmann. Just making a couple changes then Issue three will be all done. It will be available soon at treepapercomics.com
I am seriously baffled that in our hypno/musical obsessed community, the Music Meister never gets any consideration.
For those of you who don’t know him, let me be the prince of the nerds i and explain it to you. Dc comics, among its long list of comics, has a title called “The Brave and the Bold”. It was born as an anthology book, but it evolved in a team up story featuring Batman and another Superheroine/hero. In 2008, a cartoon series based on that concept was born, “Batman: The Brave and the Bold”, probably the second best animated Batman show ever (with my excuses to Batman Beyond, who gets an honorable bronze medal).
But! In that gem of a series, we got to meet, The Music Meister, a villain who wants to rule the world…by singing. Yes, our dastardly villain has the power to mind control everybody, as his voice can hit a certain pitch that alllows him to turn everyone is a mindless thrall. A singing mindless Thrall. Yes, the whole world sings and dance to the pace of this corrupt conductor. The episode per se is really fun (Music Meister is voiced by Neil Patrick Harris, and the episode features Grey DeLisle as Black Canary, and the world needs more Black Canary), and truly enjoyable even if you are not a Batman Nerd. But nerding out aside…That concept is pure gold. I know some people in the scene had the pleasure to experience something similar (thanks to the large population of sirens in the hypnosis world), but i just wanted to give this character a bit of a spotlight. He deserves it, his greatest enemy drives him Bats, you know?
(The episode in which he appears is called “Mayhem of the Music Meister)
