From the Asylum closing; Poems of the Dead

The online speculative magazine From the Asylum is shutting its doors. FTA has always provided strong, funny stories and poems, and it will be a shame to see it go by the wayside. Per the editor Kate Sanger's announcement, the magazine will continue through July, and two planned print anthologies will still be published.

Where one door closes, another opens. Coscom Entertainment, the company that brought you the zombie anthology Bits of the Dead, is now planning a new anthology: Poems of the Dead. The editors want unpublished zombie poems, up to three at a time. Payment will be 1 cent per word plus a paperback copy of the book, and there is no deadline as of yet.

Thanks to Ralan for both of these notices.

Since I had a piece in Bits of the Dead I may definitely have to try for that poetry collection. Bits of the Dead was a very well done collection, I thought. Professionally done.

Charles - I thought you'd be submitting to this anthology. Guess there's one space I won't be getting!

I agree -- Bits of the Dead was a great book. Even the order of the stories was arranged well.
