HUMANITY IS DEFEATED
Ten years ago the Sythians invaded the galaxy with one goal: to wipe out the human race.
THEY ARE HIDING
Now the survivors are hiding in the last human sector of the galaxy: Dark Space–once a place of exile for criminals, now the last refuge of mankind.
THEY ARE ISOLATED
The once galaxy-spanning Imperium of Star Systems is left guarding the gate which is the only way in or out of Dark Space–but not everyone is satisfied with their governance.
AND THEY ARE KILLING EACH OTHER
Freelancer and ex-convict Ethan Ortane is on the run. He owes crime lord Alec Brondi 10,000 sols, and his ship is badly damaged. When Brondi catches up with him, he makes an offer Ethan can’t refuse. Ethan must infiltrate and sabotage the Valiant, the Imperial Star Systems Fleet carrier which stands guarding the entrance of Dark Space, and then his debt will be cleared. While Ethan is still undecided about what he will do, he realizes that the Imperium has been lying and putting all of Dark Space at risk. Now Brondi’s plan is starting to look like a necessary evil, but before Ethan can act on it, he discovers that the real plan was much more sinister than what he was told, and he will be lucky to escape the Valiant alive. . . .

Hidden in your World
I am opening it up for my first anthology! I want to put together an epic collection of dark fantasy stories. There are thousands of secret places on our planet. Some might be happy utopias, but most are hidden because they are dark and scary! Your job is to uncover and expose these hideous places. I am looking for stories about hidden cities or tribes from other planets or times melted into our present world. Dig deep into your imagination and show me what you got!
General Submission Guidelines
We will not publish stories containing sexual content involving minors in any way, or stories containing bestiality (submissions pertaining to werewolves and other supernatural creatures are excluded from the use of the term bestiality); other than that, the only boundaries are your imagination!
Sexual content unnecessary to the storyline is discouraged unless you are submitting an erotic story for consideration.
Gore for the sake of gore or simply included for shock value in a piece is discouraged as well, and will most likely not garner our attention unless it is necessary to support the storyline.
We work on a percentage sharing scale with our authors; details will be discussed after submissions are approved. Anthologies are a ‘royalties sharing’ market, we do not pay in advance for stories.
Submissions should be sent as attachments to your email, not copied into the body of the message.
Attachments should be in *.doc or *.docx format.
Font details: Times New Roman, 12 point with single spacing;

All submissions should be emailed to email@example.com
No previously published works will be considered for inclusion.
That’s about it.
Carly was born to be a hunter, a destiny she rejected until one fateful night
when the only person she had in the world was taken, her mom. Now Carly is on a
mission to hunt down the entity that destroyed her world.
to The Order of the Hunters—a group of chosen who are given the gift to track
and kill those beings that go bump in the night. Oh yes, they are real, the
monsters that creep in the darkness. They hide in the gardens of our own minds
by making us believe they are nothing more than myths and legends. I’ve
traveled this road for two years now. It’s not the same highway, but at times,
when the sun is high in the sky and the road sweats from the heat, it feels
like it. I wish I could say what brought me to this point was a sense of honor
and nobility. In reality it was much simpler, it was revenge. Mom was taken by
Shai, the weigher of souls.
