Sam's Dot Publishing is currently working on a new anthology, Side Show 2: Tales of the Big Top and the Bizarre. (Thanks to Mark Crittenden for mentioning this one -- he'll be doing the cover art.) For this anthology, submit circus/carnival/midway-themed speculative stories between 1500 and 5000 words. Payment will be $12 plus a copy for unpublished stories, or $7 plus a copy for reprints. There is no set deadline, but they're hoping to publish by January or February, so get those stories in soon. You can find the full guidelines in the August issue of Expressions (scroll about 4/5 of the way to the bottom, or just search for "side show").
For fantasy writers, Fight On! magazine is hosting a fiction contest to fill their new anthology, titled Weird Enclaves and Black Pits. They want all sorts of fantasy stories (up to 10,000 words) and there is no fee to enter. Selected stories will appear in the anthology (with contributor's copies being sent out) and three lucky winners will also receive $100, $60, or $30. The deadline for this one is October 31st.
In other news, Goblin Fruit will be opening to submissions tomorrow (October 9th) while Inch will be temporarily closing to subs October 15th.
