Wicked East Press anthologies

Wicked East Press is an anthology publisher that is currently seeking submissions for several different anthologies:

- Witch's Brew: This anthology is for stories about (not surprisingly) witches. Submissions should be between 3500 and 7000 words, though stories as short as 1500 words or as long as 10,000 words will be considered. Payment is $5 per story plus $1 for every 1000 words over 5000. The deadline for submissions is December 31st.

- Songs of the Satyrs: For this anthology, all stories should have a satyr as the main character or an important character. The editor wants dark fantasy and horror from 3500 to 7000 words. Payment is 1 contributor's copy, but one writer will receive "pro rates" and three others will get $25. (It's not clear if they'll each get $25, or if the $25 gets split between the three.) The submission deadline for this anthology is January 1st, 2012.

- Dead Rush: This is an anthology of "old West horror." The editor is looking for third-person stories between 3500-7000 words, and payment is $5 per story, plus $1 extra for each 1000 words over 5000. The submission deadline is February 28th, 2012.

I wouldn't mind getting into that Dead Rush situation. Sounds intriguing.
